JavaScript, abbreviated JS, is a high-level, just-in-time compiled programming language that conforms to the ECMAScript standard. It also has built-in application programming interfaces (APIs) for working with text, dates, regular expressions, standard data structures, and the Document Object Model (DOM), networking, storage, or graphics facilities.

The language comes with dynamic typing, prototype-based object-orientation, and first-class functions and has multi-paradigm, supporting event-driven, functional, and imperative programming styles.

JavaScript is one of the core technologies of the World Wide Web, alongside HTML and CSS with major web browsers having a dedicated JavaScript engine to execute the code on users’ devices.

JavaScript was initially designed by Brendan Eich of Netscape and released on December 4, 1995.
