JavaScript

JavaScript

JavaScript is easy to learn, apply, and use the programming language of HTML and the Web. Three main technologies a web developer must learn are HTML (Hypertext Mark-up Language), CSS (Cascaded Style Sheet) and JavaScript. However, JavaScript is also used to create several diverse applications like desktop applications and client-server programs. Node.js is a well-known example of an asynchronous server implemented in JavaScript. Many databases, like MongoDB and CouchDB, are also created using JavaScript as their programming language.

Brendan Eich created JavaScript in 1995, then working at Netscape (American computer services) and currently known as Mozilla. The Initial name of JavaScript was supposed to be Mocha, chosen by Marc Andreessen. Later, In September 1995 they renamed it to Live Script, in December of the same year. Later, when they received the trademark license from Sun the name was again renamed to JavaScript. 

Why JavaScript is so popular and useful?


  • One more important thing is that with the name of JavaScript, one should not get confused with Java. Java is a totally different programming language. JavaScript is one of the much-underestimated scripting languages. JavaScript is an object-oriented language but can also be used as a functional language or imperative language.
  • JavaScript is created and designed to be a scripting language, but it was generally abused only for form validation for a long time. It is a translated language, high-level language, commonly used at the client-side.
  • The websites can be extremely interactive with CSS and JavaScript. Several transitions and effects (e.g. Scroll, hover, object movement, etc.) can be added to the webpages easily(without any performance compromise).
  • JavaScript is designed as a prototype-based scripting language with dynamic binding and first-class functions making JavaScript versatile.
  • JavaScript was initially designed to run within browsers, but nowadays we can see it running everywhere. This makes JavaScript extremely popular programming the language these days.
  • We can do jobs like doing simple form validation in browser or jobs like creating the virtual machine within the browser. JavaScript is getting used to create millions of different applications in various fields like IoT, Real-time applications, Server side implementations, game and mobile application development, and many more.
