I’ve seen a day I never thought would come: the day I turned into a hipster!
The last few months have been especially Node.JS-centric. During the day, I’ve been building architectural improvements into Jabbakam. Evenings and weekends, I’ve been hacking about on the Live Unsigned mobile site. All of my recent projects revolve around Node.JS, and I’ve been loving it. Node is incredibly interesting and powerful, and it is giving my brain a workout.
So, the other day I finally broke down and tried CoffeeScript.
Anyway, I was up the other night, waiting for my daughter to wake up in screaming pain as razor-sharp pieces of enamel slowly bored through her gums. With nothing better to do, I decided to play around with CoffeeScript.
I was up and running in no time, installing the Node.JS Module and browsing the Little Book of CoffeeScript. After about an hour I had effortlessly written some additions to Live Unsigned which integrated seamlessly. To be honest, I feel like a bit of a muppet for not trying it sooner.
So yes, I am now coding in CoffeeScript.
I am now a hipster.
There is nothing left for me but to rush out, buy some skinny jeans and a Macbook Air and learn Vim.
