What is JavaScript?

JavaScript (JS) is a programming language of the World Wide Web, and the only fully-featured language that can run entirely in the browser. JavaScript is an ECMAScript language. ES6 or ECMAScript 6 is the latest iteration of the language. The introduction of ES6 added new features to JS that other major languages had, and ES5 lacked. ES6 modernized JavaScript and brought it to the 21st century, allowing developers to do more with less lines of code. JS powers the functional elements on almost all modern websites. To become a successful web developer in today’s day and age, JavaScript is an absolute must-have skill. Vanilla JS refers to code that is free of all external dependencies including frameworks, plugins, or libraries.

Learning Vanilla JS first is important for developers who want to gain a strong programming foundation, but eventually, learning libraries is a great way to enhance your JavaScript skills. JSON and AJAX are also covered in our Web Development Immersive Course
