Starting your coding journey can be a daunting experience, especially because it can be hard to set up. Fortunately, there is a lot of information online which can break the barrier of entry, allowing anyone to toy with coding.

In this article, I will talk about some of the best languages to learn in 2020, along with a description, and their pros/cons. Remember that this is my opinion, but I will provide an explanation.

For the sake of simplicity, I will not be talking about advanced topics, but will be covering some reasons why you may like/dislike the language.

#3 — Javascript

Description: Javascript is a language used for front-end development (think websites, pages, etc.). Javascript is used to dynamically display content on webpages (interactive maps, timers, etc.)

If you choose to learn Javascript, it is important to learn HTML and CSS (and maybe Bootstrap). These are not programming languages, but considered design language, because they are only used to create static webpages.

Pro’s of Javascript:

  • Almost every popular website uses javascript; high-demand
  • Javascript is a fast language because it does not need to be compiled.
  • You can include Javascript in projects that use other languages.
  • Many frameworks for back-end development.

Con’s of Javascript:

  • If you are not interested in Website Development, then Javascript is not for you.
  • Each browser interprets Javascript differently, which may make you test your code on many browsers.
  • Destructive Errors; An error could completely destroy the funtionality of your website.
