    This talk

    Don't like JavaScript? Don't like CoffeeScript? Want to use Ruby on the backend and on the front-end? Then this talk is for you! Opal is a Ruby to JavaScript source-to-source compiler, which also has an implementation of the Ruby corelib. In this talk we'll examine how Opal works, where it delivers and where it falls short. And above all - we'll have fun!
