Average rating: **...

JavaScript is the world’s most popular language – it is virtually everywhere. And once you learn it (or you’re already familiar with it from some browser scripting) you can leverage it to accomplish a great deal of programming and automation tasks.

  • choose node.js for your next server-side web app
  • automate sysadmin tasks with JavaScript shell scripts
  • improve your (and your visitor’s) browsing experience with bookmarklets and browser extensions
  • automate common PhotoShop tasks
  • extend some of your favorite apps (e.g. DreamWeaver)
  • create desktop GUI apps that run on Windows, Mac and Linux using XULRunner
  • create iPhone and Android apps with Titanium or PhoneGap
