An overview of how and why the future for JavaScript developers looks bright.

Regardless of whether you simply want to learn JavaScript or change your specialization, it is important to take a moment and appreciate the current state of JavaScript.

Things were not always as bright they are today. In the first half of this section, we went through the dark history of JavaScript on the client-side; then we transitioned to the somewhat brighter and shorter history of JavaScript on the server.

These events made it possible for JavaScript developers to experience growth way beyond what we imagined ten years ago. An avalanche of use cases awaits JavaScript developers, such as VR and Blockchain technologies, helping JavaScript conquer new horizons.

As JavaScript continuously gains popularity, software developers who specialize in technologies that include JavaScript have a bright present and future.

If you would like to learn JavaScript, the last part of the last section concluded that JavaScript is close to optimal in terms of providing you an optimal learning experience. Given that you often experience immediate feedback to your actions (as long as you stick to reasonable challenges), you can expect to spend more development and learning time in JavaScript compared to many other languages.
