JavaScript

Perhaps the most misunderstood yet at the same time most powerful programming language is the infamous JavaScript. Often confused with Java by non technical people, it was originally was written off as a toy language not meant for serious computing. Today, JS is not regarded as a toy, but rather one of the defacto languages of the web handling everything from Server Side to Client Side computing with powerful prototype based inheritance, and liberal use of lambdas, closures, and functional programming techniques. On the browser side, jQuery has made it easy for web designers and developers to add effects and animation with ease. On the server, Node.js has taken the world by storm and can be found in production websites powering some of the biggest businesses in the world like Walmart, LinkedIn, Uber, Paypal, Yahoo, and many more. Today, JS development continues in projects like D3 JS, Meteor JS, Angular JS, React by Facebook, Backbone, and many more. In fact, keeping up with all of the new developments and advancements in the JS community is a huge task. The JS community is one to keep an eye on now and in the future.
