The language that makes your website alive.
Common Characteristics of Js:
Light-weighted: Js does not need any environmental setup or interpreter to interpret the code this language can be run in the browser itself.
Object-based scripting language: one of a feature that makes js a special scripting language is it can work on object-based scripting unlike to other scripting languages. in simple words it OOP based scripting language
Interpreter-based language: This language is not complied it is an interpreted language it converts the code to machine-level language line by line that's why it is known as an interpreted language.
inbuilt functions: It has a wide range of inbuilt functions that solve most of the day to day challenges faced by any programmers
client-side technology: client-side programming language means when you open the website then the code is interpreted which makes it special from other languages
Scripting language: It is one of the most popular scripting languages in the world. almost every programmer knows js which shows the popularity of this language.Also, it creates a script inside the HTML code means helps to create an embedded code
We asked about what industry our respondents worked in. 45% of users answered “tech”, revealing an underlying ambiguity in our question. For instance, if you work at Google, do you work at a tech company or an advertising company? What about at Microsoft, which many consider a tech company, but also has advertising and even hardware manufacturing arms? Next time, we’ll ask for more detailed information about industry concentrations.
“We asked about what industry our respondents worked in. The most common answer was “tech” at 45%”
- finance: 7%
- advertising and marketing: 5%
- education: 5%
- entertainment: 5%
- business support and logistics: 4%
- healthcare: 4%
- retail: 3%
- government: 2%
- manufacturing: 2%
With 16,000 responses, even the single-digit groups per industry constituted enough data to make meaningful conclusions. We discarded answers from industries with less than 2% responses (i.e. less than 300 individual responses).
Manufacturing across the board uses less of everything — only 51% of manufacturing respondents say they use a testing framework, compared to 75% in finance.
“Manufacturing across the board uses less of everything — only 51% of manufacturing respondents say they use a testing framework, compared to 75% in finance.”
Put another way: hardware isn’t a browser. This view of manufacturing respondents is backed up by another question, in which 31% of manufacturing respondents say their code is put to use in IoT (Internet of Things). No other industry gets above double digits for that answer. This makes manufacturing an interesting set of answers across the board, as we’ll see.
Finance, on the other hand, uses everything the most. They are the most likely to use a bundler, second-most likely to use a linter (after healthcare), most likely to test, second-most likely to use a web framework (after retail), most likely to use a transpiler, and second-most likely to use a CSS preprocessor (after advertising). Finance just does all the things.
Angular was a fairly popular choice across all industries, but strongest in finance. Developers in entertainment were the least likely to use Angular, their strongest preference being for React (65%).
React was the most popular framework in the survey overall, though with strong variations by industry. As mentioned, 65% of developers in entertainment chose it, but that fell to 46% in government and 38% in manufacturing. Manufacturing’s strongest choice for a framework was jQuery (52%), suggesting the industry is a late adopter. The government also had jQuery as its top pick at 52%.
Around 20% of developers in most industries reported using Vue, though it was notably more popular in advertising, with 34% of developers reporting it there.
