What even is JavaScript?

On this episode hosted by Jennifer Blumberg with guest Chris Ferdinandi, we continue the “What is even…?” series by delving into exactly what even is JavaScript?

We talk about JavaScript’s convoluted origins, and how a language written in 10 days has become the most popular language on the planet.

Chris leads us through discussing the perils of the proliferation of JavaScript on the frontend, as well as the absolutely amazing things it allows us to do in the browser, on the server, and even in the cash register!

We also have a pretty interesting discussion on the overuse of frameworks, but also how those very frameworks benefit the platform as a proving ground for patterns that work.
