Episode 35 – We’re Back, Ceylon, Rails + CoffeeScript and TSSJS 2011 recap

April 26th, 2011

We're Back!

Wow, it's been a while! We're back though and apologize for the long delay between casts. I had to edit this cast really quick, so if I missed anything (like links for the show notes) let me know.

Today we're talking about our experience at TSSJS 2011, and what Red Hat and Gavin King are up to as they introduce the spec for a new JVM language called Ceylon. Ceylon; besides being a country (or former one) famous for Tea as Java is for Coffee; is a language which was designed to incorporate the Functional aspects of languages like Scala and Closure with the approachability of Java.

Some of us are highly skeptical that Ceylon will live up to what others claim: that it's the "Java killer"

Also we discuss briefly the 4Chan-esque commit which is: Rails using CoffeeScript as its default.
