JS: The Ultimate Programming Language Champion!
The Stack Overflow Developer Survey 2021 revealed that JS has been the top programming language for 9 years in a row! While the survey doesn't exactly explain why developers love JS so much, it does show that it's been widely used among the participants.
In my view, the popularity of JS boils down to its user-friendliness, crystal-clear documentation, wide-ranging development possibilities, and strong community backing. Plus, there's a massive pool of open-source contributors who create awesome libraries and frameworks using JS.
The Incredible Versatility of JS!
When JS first burst onto the scene, it was exclusively used in the Netscape internet browser. Soon after, Internet Explorer (IE), Mozilla, Google Chrome, Opera, and other browsers hopped on the bandwagon. Before Node.js came into existence, front-end developers relied on JS libraries and frameworks like jQuery and AngularJS.
