What is JavaScript?

It is a scripting language that works with HTML to enhance web pages and make them more interactive.  It is a multi-paradigm language that supports object-oriented and functional programming. A script is made up of a sequence of statements that give instructions for the computer to perform certain tasks. For examples, it can play a song,  starts a slideshow, initiates an animation, plays a video clip,   displays advertisements, presents multimedia content and so on. JavaScript can turn a web page into a lively interactive platform for the world wide web users! Besides, JavaScript can be used to develop mobile applications by working hand-in-hand with CSS, HTML5, and AJAX.

Why use JavaScript?

Why use JavaScript? You may have this question in mind. Well, let me get to the point.  Initially, the HTML or HyperText Markup Language was the only language that was used to present text and graphics as well as links to the world wide web users in the 90’s of the last century. Although it was a great improvement from the earlier text-only browsers like Gopher, it was relatively passive and static and it cannot interact much with the users.  Fortunately, the invention of JavaScript has overcome the static nature of HTML and vastly improved the user experience by turning a web page into a lively interactive platform.  Basically, HTML provides the primary structure and layout of a web page wheres JavaScript provides the majority of the interactivity.
