Programming Language

Enterprises today are operating in the digital world and setting a new frontier of digital innovation. They are recreating a next-generation of business ecosystem by enhancing user experience and interfaces through smoother delivery of information on websites. However, these all are possible with the work of programmers and developers, including JavaScript developers. JavaScript is an object-oriented programming language used to build and control website content. Millions of webpages we see today are built on JavaScript.

This programming language is used beyond web browsing to the server-side. It allows developers to control and create, enhance and amend websites. A JavaScript developer implements the front-end logic that outlines the behavior of the visual elements of a web application. These developers often work alongside other front-end web developers specialized in mark-up and styling.

Programming languages are simply the formal languages that are used in computer programming to implement algorithms. And JavaScript leads these languages cohort. Alongside HTML and CSS, it is one of the core technologies of the World Wide Web, enabling interactive web pages and becoming an integral part of web applications.

As per SlashData’s survey of developers, JavaScript remains the most popular programming language among developers, followed by Python and Java. It further revealed that JavaScript, which includes CoffeeScript and Microsoft’s TypeScript in the survey, is by far the most popular language, with 12.4 million developers using it worldwide.
