I write a lot of coffeescript (wrote a lot of scripts, several web apps with backbone and ~5 canvas games). It's marvelous. It saves time. Makes it easier to work with objects. The syntax is great.

http://coffeescript.org/ is all you need.

You know javascript, right? In that case, all you need to do is try and rewrite some old project to coffeescript. As I said, the site is all you need. If you still need some help, I'l pm you my skype or something.
