Why Javascript is a Must for Web Developers

Why Javascript is a Must for Web Developers

It’s a tale as old as time, for divine paintings an artist must have a vision. If it’s writing, then one needs to master the art of storytelling, but for those who wish to craft digital artwork in form of development - JavaScript is a must. Let’s move aside the dramatics and get to the nitty-gritty part of the article: List of reasons why JavaScript is a must for web developers.

Outsourced Jobs

Many clients outsource their business website needs to a team of developers, it's a fair assumption if we say that all of them know these three languages: HTML, CSS, and JavaScript. These are the triad you need for front-end development. There’s not a lot of space for web developers who cannot work on JavaScript, since hundreds of frameworks such as Vue.js or Angular is based on this coding language.

What makes JavaScript so special?

JavaScript has been around for 25 years, it’s a programming language that makes websites interactive. So if HTML and CSS make a site appear, JavaScript is what makes it come to life. For years now, it has been the undefeated king of front-end development, moreover, with Node.js introduced, you can even work on the back-end of the website with JavaScript. It’s the undefeated giant in development, in our outsourced web development projects, we use JavaScript more than 90% of the time. If you've ever aspired to be a front-end web developer, then consider JavaScript as the native language you need to be able to speak fluently.

In-demand Skill

If we googled “JavaScript jobs” you are going to get tons of results. This programming language has existed in web development for over 2 decades, so it’s not surprising that it’s in demand. JavaScript is used on more than 90% of websites worldwide - and this trend just keeps growing over the years. There’s a whole sea of programming languages and frameworks, each having its own unique spark, but this 25-year-old giant has been unsinkable. There’s also a significant surge of freelance job opportunities, where people are outsourcing their development projects and the number one skill listed as a must? Yeah, you guessed it - JavaScript.


JavaScript is a great tool for beginner programmers who want to dabble in web development. It is quite easy to learn, compared to other high-level languages. It is very object-oriented and has an imperative style of programming. If you get the hang of JavaScript you are more likely to breathe through Python or C++.

We can proudly say that JavaScript is the native language of LavaPi’s developers, it is the most sought after and required language in web development projects. We should know - we work on the most demanding outsourced projects in the industry and if you want to add your web project to our “satisfied clients” tab, feel free to email us anytime.
