About this event

JavaScript was initially created to “make web pages alive”.

The programs in this language are called scripts. They can be written right in a web page’s HTML and run automatically as the page loads.

When JavaScript was created, it initially had another name: “LiveScript”. But Java was very popular at that time, so it was decided that positioning a new language as a “younger brother” of Java would help.

What can JavaScript do?

For instance, in-browser JavaScript is able to:

  • Add new HTML to the page, change the existing content, and modify styles.
  • React to user actions, run on mouse clicks, pointer movements, and key presses.
  • Send requests over the network to remote servers, download and upload files (so-called AJAX and COMET technologies).
  • Get and set cookies, ask questions to the visitor, and show messages.
  • Remember the data on the client-side (“local storage”).

What makes JavaScript unique?

There are at least three great things about JavaScript:

  • Full integration with HTML/CSS.
  • Simple things are done simply.
  • Supported by all major browsers and enabled by default.

JavaScript is the only browser technology that combines these three things.

That’s what makes JavaScript unique. That’s why it’s the most widespread tool for creating browser interfaces.

That said, JavaScript can be used to create servers, mobile applications, etc.
