Constantly amazed at the quality of tutorials guys. It makes it super fun and engaging. The real-time compiler to Javascript was a huge help and +1 for cool factor. Whenever I need a break from what I'm working on, I'll whip through a tutorial on CodeSchool. Feels more like a video game than school. :-)


Awesome CoffeeScript course ... can't wait to convert some of my ugly JavaScript into CoffeeScript. The courses on code school just get better.


I've dabbled in coffeescript before, but "A sip of coffeescript" really helped take me to the next level. I love that they tied it in to some of the previous codeschool jQuery courses as it really helped with the "real-world" aspect of Coffeescript implementation. Fantastically done course, these just keep getting better and better! Bravo Codeschool.


I couldn't think of an appropriate title for this review. It's a little late now, but maybe I went too front-heavy with the bacon-wrapped enchiladas, I don't know. What I DO know, though, is that this course is a keeper. Fun Fact: I went to work the next day and fired off 50 lines of CoffeeScript code to set up a feature that took almost 200 lines of JS on one of our other sites. Double-whammy: I had literally never written a line of JS code prior to running through the jQuery Air course 4 days prior. That's about as high an endorsement as I can think of for any training/tutorial/course.
