Who Uses JavaScript?

It's safe to say that knowing only one language is not the best way to become tech-savvy: languages always work together, and you'll face limitations from the get-go. If you had to pick a language to start with, however, it might just be JavaScript. With gaining popularity and tons of different uses, JavaScript is a great way to dip your toes into coding.

PEOPLE WHO MAKE WEBSITES

JavaScript is run on almost every modern browser. Web Developers and Front-End Engineers use JavaScript every day to create interactive websites. Whenever you're reading a blog article, or interacting with your friends on facebook, you're reaping the benefits of JavaScript. Websites are created using several different languages. The most popular combination is HTML, JavaScript, and CSS.

PEOPLE WHO MAKE WEB APPLICATIONS

Because of it's growing popularity, JavaScript is becoming more and more adaptable and versatile. There are more than ten versions of JavaScript that are currently supported today - and that number will continue to grow. You'll see a lot of web applications built in Python and Java, but in the past few years, JavaScript has emerged as more of a back-end development tool.

Since JavaScript is widely used for visualization, Data Scientists don't often use JavaScript in their day-to-day tasks. They utilize Python and R because they contain standard libraries (a feature missing from JavaScript.)
