JavaScript (not to be confused with Java) is what takes a bland HTML page and makes it interactive, dynamic, and alive. When you are looking at a webpage and parts of it move or can be interacted with, JavaScript is the code that brings it to life.

A webpage with images that change as you look at it or leaves cookies on your browser have JavaScript elements. Sometimes JavaScript is embedded in the HTML code of a website, while other times the code will exist in its own file. JavaScript manipulates the HTML but it can also respond to other factors, such as the actions a user takes on a page.

Have you ever moved your curser to the top of a page to navigate away, only to get a popup that says suggests you look at a different section of the webpage? How about a website that displays today’s date? These are examples of JavaScript.

A professional mobile app development company may be able to provide more information regarding JavaScript and other coding languages.
