The Discussion

    Susan your blanket statement at @49:40 about CoffeeScript being for inexperienced JavaScript developers undermines your credibility as a web developer. CoffeeScript is actually for JavaScript developers that are so experienced they know the shortcomings and dangers of large scale JavaScript development, and are enlightened enough to use a safer JavaScript generator. Much the same with TypeScript. CoffeeScript is the good parts of JavaScript minus the bad parts.

    On to this 2nd installment (web dev), and finding many useful items. Working through most of the suggestions with a second PC running VS 2013.

    Was going to install Web Essentials from site; but checked recent reviews posted on that site. Several issues with instability and UI slowing - to the point where people are removing the feature.

    Likely a temporary glitch - but not something those new to VS 2013 want to have to deal with. I bookmarked the site, and will check back later.

    I don't see the translated to JS window or JS code, when I try the coffescript demo - is that because I have expanded scroll bar map mode, while demo did not? Map mode just shows the non-JS entries I make.

    Not a big issue for me; just curious.
