Code and Resources
Rosetta Code CoffeeScript Examples - A great list of example CoffeeScript code for a wide range of programming topics. If you feel like contributing or just want a pointer for a small problem to practice CoffeeScript with, check out their Tasks not implemented in CoffeeScript list and code them up.
A Case Against Using CoffeeScript - Ryan Florence argues that CoffeeScript isn’t a good idea because it separates the programmed code from the executed code thus increasing the difficulties debugging and maintaining the codebase. A lot of his points depend on subjective arguments, but it and its discussion on Hacker News are well worth a read.
Should You Learn CoffeeScript? - An amazing panel discussion by a good group of programmers ranging from CoffeeScript promoters to naysayers. Seriously, both the above Ryan Florence and Oscar Godson are included as well as Jeremy Ashkenas, Brendan Eich, and Trever Burnham. If you are at all interested in CoffeeScript (and I’m betting you are) this is an amazing read.
