Why you should learn JavaScript.

Hey! 👋 My name is Nicholas and I’m a self-taught developer, this is my first blog post on Medium, I’m going to be giving 3 reasons why you should definitely consider learning JavaScript, so lets this party started. 😎

For those who don’t know what JavaScript is, JavaScript is an object-oriented programming language designed to create interactive behavior within web browsers such as Chrome, Firefox, Edge, Safari, etc… JavaScript is also high-level so you don’t have to understand what happens under the hood.

  1. It’s everywhere 😲
    JavaScript is everywhere, literally. This website uses JavaScript, the site you were on previously uses JavaScript, the site you’re going to go on next uses JavaScript, it’s everywhere! The majority of websites today are built in JavaScript with Libraries or Frameworks such as React, Angular, Vue, and more. Most websites use JavaScript because JavaScript allows websites to generate dynamic data to render to the client, JavaScript also provides a dynamic environment to handle the dynamic events on web pages.
  2. You can make anything 🚀
    With JavaScript, you can pretty much create anything you’d like, you can create web applications, mobile applications, desktop applications, and more. You can also use JavaScript for your web server using Node.js, so essentially you can create a fully stacked website with a single programming language, I’ll talk more about Node.js in a different blog.
  3. Huge Job Market 💰
    As you can see from the graph below JavaScript has grown massively over the years, JavaScript is also one of the most popular programming languages out there, if you decide to learn JavaScript they’ll be plenty of jobs out there for you.

To conclude this blog I think JavaScript is an excellent programming language for developers and newbies to know, JavaScript opens endless opportunities and widens the endless things you can create.
