JavaScript Is King of the Hill

JavaScript may end up being the number one programming language used in the future for application development. When used along with HTML5, the scripting language has the capacity to overtake other programming languages as the defacto language that can be used across platforms and operating systems.

When it was just a scripting language used in web pages for basic functions, nobody paid any attention to JavaScript. Now that it’s being used in combination with CSS3 and HTML5, programmers, and everybody else, are paying attention. If HTML5 is the glue that binds the web together, JavaScript is going to be the client-side coding used–the icing on the cake.

It’s not that other programming languages aren’t capable of producing decent apps. It’s more because apps built with JavaScript are able to work on any mobile device or desktop computer that supports JavaScript–and that’s pretty much all of them.
