Javascript is (and has been for a while) one of the most popular programming languages in the world!

Because of it’s origins as a ‘scripting language for web browsers’, some people don’t realize how much Javascript has changed over the years and how powerful and versatile it is:

  • Can be used to create Desktop Applications, Mobile Applications, Web Applications, as well as websites.
  • It is used to power applications on servers (called the ‘backend’ of a website or web application) using node.js.

If you would like to learn about Javascript, here are some suggestions:

  • Join my Javascript Club which runs during the Fall semester at school.
  • Explore which combines ‘block programming’ and ‘javascript’.
  • Program using Makecode to control EV3, micro:bit which also have a ‘block programming’ and 'javascript interface.
