About JavaScript

JavaScript is a programming language which creates functionality for a website. It is the framework that runs web browsers and can be used to define the behavior of applications.

iBCScorp™

iBCScorp™, as a software development company, has some of the best JavaScript developers in the world. As a JavaScript development company, we focus on many different JavaScript frameworks, libraries, and applications.

iBCScorp™'s roots go back to the mid-90’s when the founder began developing and delivering web-based applications. At the same time, JavaScript was developing as a language. Today JavaScript is still evolving as language and JavaScript and the libraries which use JavaScript are evolving as you read this.


History of JavaScript

JavaScript was initially used in 1993 in the form of Mosaic, one of the first web browsers. This played a critical role in the rise of the World Wide Web (WWW). In 1995, Microsoft adopted JavaScript and recreated it, naming it JScript. After JScript was released in 1996, it became the starting point for all standard browsers to which all vendors could conform. We all remember Internet Explorer, which debuted in the early 2000’s. As they say, the rest is history. We have used and taken advantage of the many platforms which were created with JavaScript. Today all browsers support JavaScript, including the ever-famous Google Chrome browser. This makes it ideal as both a server and client-side technology for web and mobile applications.

JavaScript Libraries and Frameworks

The JavaScript programming language is used in coordination with tools called libraries and frameworks. As a simple definition, libraries are snippets of pre-built code that are used and reused to build a web application. Libraries provide building blocks. Frameworks, on the other hand, are more like a blueprint or frame of a project. JavaScript Frameworks are a collection of pre-built code. There are so many different libraries and frameworks to choose from, and we choose from each of them based on the desired features of any given project.

Here is our research on cutting edge JavaScript frameworks and most popular libraries for 2022.

Why is JavaScript so Popular?

A client-side application is one that can run on a computer or phone by the user (the client). A server-side application, on the other hand, runs on a server. JavaScript, while it can be both client side and server side, is mostly adopted because of its compatibility with web browsers and mobile devices. Because even televisions now have browsers, it is easy to widely distribute a JavaScript application. Imagine if you have 10 million users. If the the application is completely server-side; it would require lots of server capacity and cost. On the other hand if the application is largely distributed (client-side) to 10 million browsers and mobile devices, the application can scale infinitely, as long as the back-end can handle requests for data to that application. This allows the application to both perform better and be more affordable to operate.

To sum up, JavaScript:

  • Makes the application faster for the client
  • Allows the application to scale to more users
  • Is easy to understand and learn
  • Works well with other programming languages
  • Provides functionality right on the client that is sometimes difficult and cost prohibitive to provide on the server side.

Common examples of the use of JavaScript are resizing an image, loading different content on the page for different users, applying a beauty filter to your phone, and most importantly, allowing you to make web pages interactive.
