For sure, CoffeeScript and TypeScript are very different from each other. CoffeeScript is a programming language with syntactic sugars primarily influenced by Python, Ruby, and Haskell. Brevity and readability are its biggest strengths. CoffeeScript code is very easy to read and understand. Just like Python, indentations in CoffeeScript are used to indicate code blocks (instead of ugly braces). Semicolons and parentheses are optional. People rarely use semicolons in CoffeeScript unless they really have to, but using parentheses may actually help in making the code easier to read.
