I gave this talk February 20, 2014 at the Atlanta Javascript Meetup Group in Atlanta, GA.

Coffeescript has a reputation of being one of the most hated and loved languages in web development today. Why does this tool generate such a vigorous emotional response?

Brian Mann attempts to understand the communities' reactions to this little language called Coffeescript. He also gives a full review of it's most valuable features. In the end he hopes to dispel the myths and fear behind Coffeescript because afterall, it's just Javascript.
