What is JavaScript?

Javascript is a programming language and used to make web pages interactive.
A programming language is a language to communicate with computers.
By communicating I mean you tell the computer to do something by writing code. A person who uses programming languages to command computers is called a programmer and/or developer.
There are many different programming languages for different uses.
Javascript is used to make websites dynamic, create browser games and much more. You will learn about it more as you learn Javascript.

  • Knowing how to use your computer ( makes your programming life easier)
  • HTML & CSS
  • Arithmetic and if you know (algebra is a plus for yourself)
