Book Description

JavaScript is everywhere, and it has been ranked the most commonly used programming language. There's often some confusion about the two, but JavaScript and Java have almost nothing in common.

How a sidekick scripting language for Java, created at Netscape in a ten-day hack, ships first as a de facto Web standard and eventually becomes the world's most widely used programming language.

This book tells the story of the creation, design, evolution, and standardization of the JavaScript language over the period of 1995–2015. But the story is not only about the technical details of the language.

It is also the story of how people and organizations competed and collaborated to shape the JavaScript language which dominates the Web of 2020.
