Why JavaScript?

Before going any further let’s discuss, what JavaScript?

And, simple answer is, that, there is not other alternative to it.

For layman, JavaScript is some kind of computer language that add interactivity to components or elements you see on web page.  These web pages are made up of HTML and CSS. HTML defines tags or elements on page and CSS positions and styles them according to your script.

With HTML and CSS you define placeholders and styles them. But, on their own, they can’t do any thing. They are just like zombies.

And, JavaScript is a kind of spirit, that blows some kind of life into them.

I hope, this clears your doubts, about, what the hell JavaScript is, and why you are strongly requested to learn it.

Is it compulsory to learn JavaScript?

And finally, is it seriously necessary to learn JavaScript? And, the answer is yes and no, both, at first.

If you’re just a blogger, or has nothing to do much about it, you are here just to hang out, then you’re not required to know even ABCD of JavaScript.

But, if you’re someone who want to add those lovely things to your project, discussed in previous section, you’re highly recommended to start it doing right now.

 

JavaScript is the De Facto scripting language for web pages. There is no alternative.

I hope your all doubts about JavaScript are now clear. If you have anything to say about JavaScript, kindly join the discussion in the comments section. And, keep learning.
