The talk was interesting intro into back-end to front-end JS in CoffeeScript. I found it enjoyable but a bit overcrowded. Next time please get a bigger room. my legs fell asleep sitting on the floor.

“End-to-end” in this case refers to running the same code on both the client and the server. Right now that’s a kind of a crazy, boundary-pushing hack, but I think it’s the future.

I’ll talk a little bit about CoffeeScript basics, then I’ll go through an example that shows how you can run the same CoffeeScript (or JavaScript) code on both the front and back ends of a Rails 3.1 app for a common use case: validation.

Can you tell us anything about this talk? Anything? “End-to-end” could mean it’s an introduction or that it’s about the arcane details.
