What is Javascript?

What is Javascript?

Javascript is a programming language that allows developers to create actions on their websites. But what is Javascript?, How did Javascript? are some of the questions that the following article tries to solve.

Javascript is a language that can be used by professionals and beginners in the development and design of websites. It requires no compilation since the language works client side, browsers are responsible for interpreting the codes.

Many confuse JavaScript with Java but both languages ​​are different and have their unique characteristics. Javascript has the advantage of being incorporated into any website, can be executed without the need to install another program to be visualized.

Java on the other hand has the main feature being a platform-independent language. You can create any kind of program that can be run on any computer in the market: Linux, Windows, Apple, etc.. Due to its characteristics it is also widely used for the Internet.

As a summary it can be said that Javascript is a scripting language based on prototypes, while Java is a more object-oriented language.

What is Javascript?

JavaScript is a language with many possibilities, used to create small programs that are then inserted into a web page and in larger programs, aimed at more complex objects. With Javascript can create different effects and interact with our users.

This language has several features, among them we can mention that it is a language based on shares held fewer restrictions. Furthermore, it is a language that uses Windows and X-Windows systems, much of the programming in this language is focused on describing objects, write functions that respond to mouse movements, openings, use of keys, loads of pages among others.

It should be emphasized that there are two types of JavaScript: on one side is running on the client, this is the Javascript itself, though technically called Navigator JavaScript. But there is also a Javascript that runs on the server is more recent and is called LiveWire Javascript.

How did Javascript?

Javascript was the need to allow authors to create website pages that allow trade with users, as they needed to create more complex websites. The HTML only allowed to create static pages where one could display text with styles, but are needed to interact with users.

In the 1990s, Netscape LiveScript think, the first versions of this language were mainly engaged in small groups of Web designers who did not need to use a compiler, or no experience in object-oriented programming.

As they were available new versions of this language included new potential components that language, but unfortunately this version only worked on the latest version of the Navigator at the time.

In December 1995, Netscape and Sun Microsystems (the creator of Java) after joining to develop the project together, reintroduced this language with the name of Javascript. In response to the popularity of Javascript, Microsoft launched its own programming language based script, VBScript (a small version of Visual Basic).

In 1996 Microsoft is interested in competing with Javascript so Launches language called JScript, introduced in Internet Explorer browsers. Despite the various criticisms that are made to the javascript language, this is one of the most popular programming languages ​​for the web. Since browsers include Javascript, do not need the Java Runtime Environment (JRE) to run.

JavaScript is a technology that has survived for over 10 years, is fundamental on the web, along with the standardization of the “European Computer Manufacturers Association” (ECMA) (later adopted by the ISO) and W3C DOM, Javascript is regarded by many web developers as the foundation for the next generation of dynamic web applications on the client side.

Javascript standardization jointly with ECMA began in November 1996. It adopted this standard in June 1997 and then also by the “International Organization for Standardization” (ISO). The DOM for its acronym in English “Document Object Model” was designed to avoid incompatibilities.

Some features of the language are:

Is it compatible with browsers?

With the emergence of languages ​​like PHP server side and client side Javascript emerged acronym Ajax (Asynchronous Javascript And XML). The same is a technique for creating interactive web applications. This language combines several technologies:

  • HTML and CSS Style Sheets to create styles.
  • ECMAScript implementations, one of which is the Javascript language.

Should You Manage Your Website?

Should You Manage Your Website?

Many business owners and possible web clients asks “Should I maintain my business’s website myself or hire The Marketing Beast to do the work for me?”.

How do we answer these questions? With two other questions:

  1. Is building and maintaining websites yours or your business’s the key focus?
  2. Could you find enough time to expand and improve your website to make it more profitable and efficient?

The answers we get in return tend to come as “no” and “yes” respectively, to which we say “that is why you should leave the building and design to The Marketing Beast”.

Many business owners believe hiring a professional web designer goes out of their budget, and that is not true. Having a professional web designer do the work for you is money well spent because you need to remember, a well-designed website can bring you a positive return on your investment.

It is pointless to have a website if it lacks the content required to interest customers in the products you sell or the services you provide and that is why it is best to leave website design and maintenance to the experts, and it is your responsibility to provide the designer with the content (text and photographs) that best convey your company’s message to your customers.

Below are a few questions that, once answered, will help The Marketing Beast ensure that your website’s message goes to the right people with the right message:

  • What is the purpose of your website?
    Is it to educate the consumer about your product and why they should get it, or to sell your products or services convincing the possible clients why they should get your service and not your competition. Doing this will help define the purpose of your website and give the designers and developers enough information to create a website that best conveys that purpose to your target audience.
  • Who is your target audience?
    Your target audience consists of potential and current customers, future and current employees, possible investors and so on. Anyone who might be interested in your company and its products or services is a member of your target audience. Identifying your target audience is extremely important for your online business, and you can practice this by putting yourself on your client’s shoes. Just think of yourself as a new online guest visiting your website and think: what would you expect when you surf this website? How easy or user friendly it is when you try to figure out what your website offers and how to get it. Remember to always fulfill their needs and surpass their expectations.
  • What content should my website present to the viewer?
    You website should be drive by the nature of your business and what you are offering to the client/guests. Keep it based on what you do. Do you sell houses? Feature photographs of homes you have for sale and information. Own a record studio? Feature bands you have worked with with photographs and details… possibly even notes from those you worked with. keep it simple and clean and it will dictate the purpose of your site.
  • Who is your competition and what are they doing to keep it afloat?
    What is your competition doing on the web? Use different search engines like Google or Bing and search for similar businesses and click around their websites as doing a legal/limited business espionage. Do their website’s design attract your attention? Does the message get carried out easily and understandable fast enough? What do you like about their websites? What don’t you like? Take notes of all these useful questions together with your answers and share it with The Marketing Beast to achieve your goals sooner and more efficiently.

Remember, you’re not stealing trade secrets here. You’re just borrowing ideas from the public media!

Can you teach me how to manage my own website?

Many site owners like to ask this questions because they and usually unhappy when thinking on allowing themselves to depend on a web developer to keep their sites updated need and running save (and it is completely understandable). you need to remember that your website now carries platforms which require continuous updating to feed current information to hungry customers and keep it safe from hackers and any problems you might encounter on the online world.

Once I said this, “Yes”. The Marketing Beast offers a FREE One-Hour-Training session to show you how to add or replace articles, update photo galleries, and probable on how to work on basic updated for security updates.

BUT REMEMBER, unless you’re not concerned with the site maintaining a professional appearance across all browsers, the ability to change the layout and most graphical elements is something that requires a professional.

The Marketing Beast does not offer training beyond basic content management to those who aren’t interested in investing the necessary time to take regular lessons for a period of time. Changing the graphics/layout/theme of your website is a skill that requires extensive training (and practice) to properly do.
