Discussion on: Why is your preferred programming language your go-to?

JavaScript (ES6) is my favorite. Node.js can be used in so many ways. Add something like React Native to your stack and wow, you can do server, web, desktop, and mobile.

Besides all of that, JavaScript is the only language I can just "hack" away at and consistently get somewhere. There are so many features that are available but not necessary that you can do it any way you want very quickly if you know JS well enough.

I think a lot of people think this level of choice is bad, but if you're a good ES6 dev I think the code diversity you become familiar with makes you all around more adaptable even in other languages.
