Hi everybody, is JavaScript the right language to learn for a starter?


yeah it's pretty simple to learn just be warned that you'll have to unlearn some stuff for more *professional* languages like python or rust.

@Seferi Definitely. You can easily experiment with it in your browser, it has the largest community online you can ask questions to, and you can get all kinds of libraries for your own needs. It’s syntax belongs to the C-family which means you can save a bit of effort moving to Java and C++ should the need arises. It also introduces modern concepts like closure and async/await, showing you problems that arises in modern parallel programming. Go for it and happy coding!
