Open Source ABCs: JavaScript

Welcome to our #100DaysOfOSS series. Until October 31, we'll be doing Open Source Software (OSS) terms from A to Z. We'll be diving into a different letter of the English alphabet, uncovering OSS concepts, and sharing our thoughts on them.

Today, we're covering the letter "J" for JavaScript.

JavaScript: JavaScript is a widely used programming language in open-source, front-end web development. It allows developers to add behavior, interactivity, and functionality to web pages, making them more engaging and responsive.

Now, we want to hear from you! What other OSS terms can you think of that start with the letter "J"?

Remember to use the hashtag #100DaysOfOSS if you share on social media, and don't forget to tag us @saucedopen so we can follow along.

In the realm of OSS, the letter "J" also brings to mind "jQuery" and JSON.

Kudos to your team for shedding light on these essential OSS concepts. Looking forward to the upcoming posts as you continue to uncover the A to Z of the open-source world! 🌟🌐

JSON (JavaScript Object Notation) because of its simplicity and readability, JSON finds frequent application in open-source ventures as a means of exchanging data seamlessly.
