Building DSLs with JavaScript and CoffeeScript

Building DSLs with JavaScript and CoffeeScript

Web developers are integration specialists; tying plugins, scripts and frameworks together into a web application that works. Thinking in terms of abstractions, by condensing many low-level ideas into fewer high-level ideas, allows us to simplify our code and reason about it with less cognitive overhead. In this session we will examine a few techniques for building abstractions on top of popular JavaScript frameworks by building a Domain Specific Language and bringing some convention to our code.
