IS JAVASCRIPT STILL POPULAR?

Javascript is considered one of the world's only "omni-platform" coding languages. That is, it can be adapted to run anywhere, from devices such as laptops, phones and tablets and on the server-side to power connections to robust data sources. It is a universal language for the ever-expanding web.

WHAT IS THE BENEFIT OF USING FRAMEWORKS LIKE React, jQuery AND Vue.js?

Javascript frameworks (or libraries) provide a pre-written code base that developers can use across a variety of projects or applications. They save developers time and energy by enabling them to avoid re-writing code time after time. React, jQuery and Vue.js are among the most popular and widely-used Javascript libraries.

IS JAVASCRIPT A GOOD LANGUAGE TO LEARN FOR FREELANCE OR REMOTE CAREER OPPORTUNITIES?

Because Javascript is used to program the World Wide Web, it can be deployed in a nearly unlimited variety of use cases, ranging from client websites to sophisticated, data-driven applications. As a result, it is considered an excellent skill for freelance or remote career opportunities. According to ZipRecruiter.com, Javascript developers commonly earn $101,428 working remotely.
