Its been more than 3 months since I have done anything useful. I am slowly trying to get back to normal from my forced medical sabbatical. Started reading and kind of trying to find out things i missed out in these 3+ months.
The way the technology world is going, if you miss the happenings for 3 months you may even start feeling that you are obsolete. I guess, it has been more than 6 to 9 months that I haven’t paid attention to client side UI frameworks. I happened to speak to few people recently on technologies like backbone.js, SASS and CoffeeScript. Looks like very interesting stuff, especially the CoffeeScript one.
If you are an ASP.NET developer, then you may want to read this post An Introduction to CoffeeScript
You can try it here http://coffeescript.org/
I also watched the Plural Sight video on CoffeeScript and it gave a very good overview.
