Hey everyone πŸ‘‹πŸ»,

In this article, let us discuss about the JavaScript Language and How the Web Works. This is the first part of my Beginner JavaScript Series on Dev.

The Language and How the Web Works

JavaScript is a powerful, event-driven, dynamic and flexible programming language. It can execute on a web browser that allows us to make interactive webpages such as popup menus, animations, form validation.

So the moment you enter the URL address in your browser and hit ENTER, some things happen under the hood. Let us understand them.

Alt Text

  1. The first thing that happens is the resolution of the URL.
  2. An HTTP request is sent to the server of the website.
  3. The response of the server is then parsed.
  4. Finally the page is rendered and then displayed.
