JavaScript full-fledged programming language

JavaScript  full-fledged programming language:

JavaScript is a full-fledged programming language that can be applied to an HTML document and used to create dynamic interactivity on websites. It was invented by Brendan Each, co-founder of the Mozilla project, the Mozilla Foundation and the Mozilla Corporation.
You can do pretty much anything with JavaScript. You'll start small with simple features such as adjusting layouts, making things happen when buttons are clicked, carousels, and image galleries — but eventually as you get more experienced with the language you'll be able to create games, animated 2D and 3D graphics, full blown database-driven apps, and more.

JavaScript fairly compact language:

JavaScript itself is a fairly compact language, but it is very flexible, and developers have written a lot of tools that sit on top of the core JavaScript language to provide you with access to a huge amount of extra functionality with very little effort. These include:
  • Application Programming Interfaces (APIs) built into web browsers that allow you to do anything from dynamically create HTML and set CSS styles, to grab and manipulate a video stream from the user's web cam, or generate 3D graphics and audio samples.
  • 3rd party APIs to allow developers to incorporate functionality in their sites from other properties, such as Twitter or Facebook.

  • 3rd party frameworks and libraries you can apply to your HTML to allow you to rapidly build up sites and applications.
