In this article we will find out what kind of language it is, where it is used, why you should learn it and what the future holds for JS.
The purpose of JS was to optimize performance so that user actions are executed by the browser quickly in real time.
Everything what we do to execute any program is called a script or program.
There are two ways to execute a program:
compilation - converting source code to machine code (code that a computer can understand);
Interpretation - the interpreter takes the code and runs it as is. The interpreter passes the code piece by piece.
PHP, Perl, Ruby, Python are server-side languages because their scripts are on a remote computer, and that is where they are executed.
Does JS have a future?
The web industry is growing very fast right now and JS will be at its peak for a long time to come; it will transform, but nevertheless never fade into oblivion.
