JavaScript in 2023: Why you should learn it(Blog-1) | Shah Stavan?

Hello guys, it's been a while since I've posted on my blog之

Throughout this blog, we will highlight culminating reasons to learn JavaScript over other languages.

What is JavaScript?

Not to be confused with Java, JavaScriptcreated by Netscape Communicationsfirst appeared in 1995. Its developers define it as a scripting or programming language that allows you to implement complex things on web pages. JavaScript makes web pages more dynamic and user-friendly so that they respond to visitors actions. Or, to put it another way, JavaScript makes web pages interactive.

JavaScript was once called LiveScript; but due to Javas popularity, it was rebranded to take advantage of that fame. You could say that the newer language hitched its wagon to the rising star and went along for the ride, attracting its vast following in the process.
