re: Why Javascript of all languages? VIEW POST

FULL DISCUSSION
 

As Eric Elliot says in his fluent 2013 talk, it is "Freedom" that makes JS apart(unique) from the other languages.

 

Freedom, meaning that you can do whatever you want and face the consequences of it? People must be prepared for that consequences. Like other people said here, for small companies it can be manageable, but for big enterprises the risks can be too big. Many of the "improvements" JavaScript is facing already are standard in many languages for years. JavaScript is not converging to only another language that way?
