JavaScript : Language of gods

You might have heard that JavaScript is becoming popular language among devs because of the flexibility and flavors provided by JavaScript.
JavaScript became so popular that giant conglomerates are migrating to JS.

       Corporate is paying shit ton of money for frontend devs. one of the reason why JS is so popular is because of node (experiment of ryan dahl). People started to realize that JS is more than just a language which can be used in frontend. nowadays JS is everywhere be it frontend , backend , desktop apps , PWAs , smart watches and even SpaceX uses JS as a interface of communication 😂
