…and thrown out
Thanks, but no thanks.
Don’t get me wrong, I like the idea of CoffeeScript. Specifically, the idea of limiting or removing usage of semicolons, curly braces, and/or parentheses sounds great in theory — the less to type the better, right? If you asked me back in August when I wrote that post, I would have definitely agreed.
It’s a humbling thing to admit, but it’s the truth. And being honest with myself is the first step to bettering both me as a person and my skills as a developer.
