The World's Favourite Programming Language

We believe it’s critical for beginners to stick to one programming language when starting out, and that language should be JavaScript. JavaScript is the most widely used programming language in the world today. Every single website on earth runs on JavaScript. Major companies like Netflix and PayPal live on JavaScript for their front and back ends. 

The JavaScript syntax is very simple and easy to understand even for beginners who have never written a line of code in their lives. It does not need any environment setup to get started; just open a browser, like Chrome, navigate to Developer Tools, and start coding. Writing a “Hello World” program is as simple as:

console.log("Hello World");

JavaScript’s flexibility is best suited for junior and intermediate developers. The language just helps get things done by letting the developer focus on solving the problem.

Usually, with any other programming language, there is the best use for it for example Python is best suited for Machine Learning projects whereas Swift is ideal for iOS applications. Yet, with JavaScript, you can build almost anything with it if you combine it with the right framework.

JavaScript can be used to build:

  • Website Frontends (React, Vue, or Angular)
  • Backend Projects (NodeJS)
  • Mobile Applications (React Native)
  • Desktop Applications (Electron)
  • Machine Learning (TensorFlow.js)
  • Blockchain Applications (Web3.js)

According to OfferZen, average salaries for entry-level JavaScript developers in South Africa start at R19 657. Salaries for junior JavaScript developers quickly rise by 48.8% to an average of R29 246 after they gain two years of experience. After they’ve been in the profession for four years, salaries for JavaScript developers increase by 46% to an average of R42 689.

If you have ambitions to work in web development or build your own web-based application, JavaScript is non-negotiable. Every website in the world, including this one, requires JavaScript code to run.

Once you have a firm understanding of JavaScript, transitioning to other popular languages such as Python, C# and PHP is much easier.

JavaScript is here to stay. Full-stack development and the modern frontend framework continue to help JavaScript cement its position as one of the most popular programming languages.

The next wave of JavaScript might put the spotlight on:

  • Deno: A modern and secure runtime for JavaScript
  • Web components: Reusable custom elements
  • Integration with AI and ML: Projects like Supernova and BAYOU have made substantial breakthroughs in integrating JavaScript with artificial intelligence and machine learning.
