I am starting a new mini series on JavaScript. I’m starting it from zero. Anyone can start learning from here. My goal is helping others while learning! I know about JavaScript and I’m working on a MERN tech stack. But I think it is not a bad idea to revise the JavaScript from scratch and helping others in this time. If you have any questions, shoot on the comment session or you can directly ask me in my social media. Social media links are in the last part of today’s lesson! Let’s learn JavaScript together.

So what is JavaScript ?

Ans : A programming language!

I’m funny right ?! Sorry about my joke!

JavaScript, often abbreviated as JS, is a high-level, just-in-time compiled, multi-paradigm programming language that conforms to the ECMAScript specification. JavaScript has curly-bracket syntax, dynamic typing, prototype-based object-orientation, and first-class functions. (Wiki)

So mainly JavaScript is a programming language which helps us to make many things! But mostly we knew it for web development.

Ever select anything from drop down menu ? That one made by JavaScript. JavaScript changed the whole things of web interactions.

You can use JavaScript in everywhere now. Like – Web, mobile app, desktop app, robotics, machine learning etc sector.

JavaScript has the most job in the world, so you can learn it for a better career!

Some learning resources –

This is all for the first day! Just dig down the links and learn a little about JavaScript! We’ll learn about JavaScript types tomorrow!
