Discussion on: JAVASCRIPT, why do they say “it’s easy to learn”

I imagine most people who say JavaScript is easy to learn, are saying so because for them it seemed easy to learn. That's not very scientific.

There's also a ton of information for newcomers to JavaScript, so even if the language itself isn't as easy as some other language, finding help is easy. So that can be a contributing factor.

In my view, as someone who knows JavaScript, but doesn't use it daily, it's an easy language to learn the basics of, but very difficult to get good at using.
