WHY LEARN JAVASCRIPT?

JAVASCRIPT

JavaScript is one of the powerful and flexible programming languages. It is one of the core technologies of World Wide Web.Do you know that 94.5% of all websites currently use JavaScript.

Reasons why you learn JavaScript?

  1. JavaScript is Easy to Learn
    Just as much as you set your timetable well and also follow your tutorials step by step you will find JavaScript easy.
    It only gets confusing or hard when you jump off ur lane and also JavaScript has more of a natural language feel to it.

  2. JavaScript is versatile
    JavaScript being versatile is also part of the reason why you have to study it step by step. Hence, it is used for both frontend and backend development.

  3. ** JavaScript experts are in-demand**
    JavaScript is the most popular programming language in the world,so it’s no wonder that it’s one of the most sought-after skills in the web development industry today.

  4. Game development
    Games are a big business today, and developers who know JavaScript have that extra advantage. The language’s versatility, power, and ability to easily create visual effects make it a perfect fit for game developers.

  5. For an interactive website
    You don't need JavaScript to create websites but without JavaScript, you're limited to the "animation" and "transition" that CSS offers and lots of page reloading to fetch new information.

  6. JavaScript is not only for the internet
    JavaScript has many uses that go beyond its traditional internet roles. It powers smart televisions, works with the internet of things (IoT).

  7. Apps Development
    creates native apps for iOS and Android, and builds cross-platform desktop apps, to name a few.

There are lots of reasons for you to learn JavaScript you can add yours too. Thanks
