Ten years ago, if I wanted to build a product, I wrote a website or maybe a WinForms app. Today, I have to write code to cover every platform. It’s getting overwhelming. But there is this one language that runs everywhere: JavaScript. Open Web technologies, such as HTML and JavaScript, may have their shortcomings, but given their wide applicability, they are being used everywhere.

The second major megatrend powering this JavaScript revolution revolves around performance.

The third megatrend is the widespread adoption of AJAX, and the amazing platforms that let us treat a Web page as a canvas for applications.

As amazing as JavaScript is, the language itself plain sucks.

My next article in code-magazine talks about the common mistakes most JavaScript developer make, especially experienced developers familiar with languages such as C# and Java.

Hope you like the article ..

Sound off but keep it civil:
