The Benefits to Learning JavaScript

By Martin Schaeferle | April 04, 2013

Whether you're seasoned or new to programming, JavaScript is an essential language to have under your belt. Its "write once and run anywhere" mechanics allow users with different programming systems to easily run this language, creating an interface that's easy for many to use. Most commonly seen on e-commerce based system or universities who require a programming language that can span different spoken language and be run on any computer system, JavaScript is quickly becoming the necessity to learn for any office or business that seeks to thrive.

But what other benefits exist for you? What can it give you? 1. Networking capabilities Considered to be network-centric to many, JavaScript makes it easy to work with others across networks and or create platform that easily fit into the perimeters given 2. Performance JavaScript runs in byte codes, as opposed to native-machine-language commands...this means that Java can work faster to translate its codes rather than working to translate an exclusive language 3. Organized JavaScript runs its system based on coordinated object-oriented units, known as: classes.

These classes are stored away into appropriate files and only called out by the system when they are needed...which improves the speed and efficiency of running time 4. International Use Unlike other programming languages that run on 8-bit characters that only work with Western spoken languages, Java uses a 16-bit character system that can translate to languages used all across the world. Don't hesitate to teach yourself something that could extend the reach of your business, or increase the current efficiency of your product's running systems. Take the time to learn this language now, and save tons of time, and translation troubles from finding you later.
