Why You probably hate JS
Many would tell you it’s because the language was designed in just 10 days. That’s not enough reason to hate the language though.
Some say it’s because of the compatibility issues. The use of transpilers like Babel to compile ES6 to plain JS for older browsers or browsers that haven’t been updated.
You just need to get the basic and you will find out that it’s basically nothing. When you have the passion, it’s fun to program, to create things that have not existed before. It’s really awesome!
Enough of side talks. The aim of this article is to show reasons you shouldn’t hate on JS.
Let’s get to it!
Programmers are often in love with one particular language. It usually makes them lose a lot on some other technologies. As a programmer/developer, you might have your favourite language, but here are some cool reasons why you should consider JS.
Front End Development
Writing just a static HTML/CSS websites is boring. But with the use of JS, you can add some functionality/interactivity to your site. You can use libraries, frameworks or just plain JS to do this.
Note, if you don’t understand what front end or back end development means, you may check on this.
In other class-based languages like java, you need to go through compilation to get your .class file and all that. With JS, Your browser is also your interpreter. You don’t need to compile anything, unless in the case of transpiling, which is done as you write your code.
Back End Development
Most people don’t know that JS can be used on the back end.
Mobile app development
Other things You can do with JS
Because I don’t like reading long articles, I don’t want to make this one long. I believe those 5 reasons are enough to convince you.
