WHAT

JavaScript is a flexible and powerful programming language that is implemented consistently by various web browsers. Along with HTML and CSS, it's a core component of web technology. While HTML is responsible for structure and CSS is responsible for style, JavaScript provides interactivity to web pages in the browser or in simple words it adds functionality to your web pages.

WHY

"WHY" it is the second most demanding programming language in the world,Is it because it is over promoted or most of the tech giants use it ? The answer is no it is the most demanding because of it's "EVOLUTION" back in days it was just an client side programming language but later in 2009 JavaScript runtime Node.js was released and enabled JavaScript to run on Server Side.

USES

Adding interactive behavior to web pages
There are almost no limits to the things you can do with JavaScript on a web page these are just a few examples:
  • Show or hide more information with the click of a button.
  • Change the color of a button when the mouse hovers over it.
  • Slide through a carousel of images on the homepage.
  • Zooming in or zooming out on an image.
  • Displaying a timer or count-down on a website.
  • Playing audio and video in a web page.
  • Displaying animations.
  • Using a drop-down hamburger menu.
Creating web and mobile apps
Developers can use various JavaScript frameworks for developing and building web and mobile apps. JavaScript frameworks are collections of JavaScript code libraries that provide developers with pre-written code to use for routine programming features and tasks—literally a framework to build websites or web applications around. Popular JavaScript front-end frameworks include React, React Native, Angular, and Vue. Many companies use Node.js, a JavaScript runtime environment built on Google Chrome's JavaScript V8 engine. A few famous examples include Paypal, LinkedIn, Netflix, and Uber.
Building web servers and developing server applications
Beyond websites and apps, developers can also use JavaScript to build simple web servers and develop the back-end infrastructure using Node.js.
Game development
Of course, you can also use JavaScript to create browser games. These are a great way for beginning developers to practice their JavaScript skills.

CONCLUSION

When diving into either programming or web development, JavaScript is an excellent programming language to learn and code. The capabilities of JavaScript allow us to use it in many different fields, from programming to web development. The lucid style of coding, easy and efficient syntax and its in built functions makes it the perfect choice when it comes to coding. Thus when you want to say hello to the coding world or are already a proficient user; JavaScript is a perfect blend of an easy and a powerful programming language to be used.
