The Evolution of JavaScript

The Evolution of JavaScript

At one time, JavaScript was the ugly stepchild among programming languages. Web authors would throw in bits of it to make their sites do interesting things, but no one thought of it as a way to do "real" programming. Since then, though, it's developed into a language with a lot of power and some very modern features. Learning it properly requires some serious effort, but it opens up a vast range of career opportunities.

Python is a multi-paradigm programming language that has primarily been developed as a more concise, straightforward and easy to understand alternative to other major languages such as C, Java and Perl.

Famed venture capitalist Marc Andreessen generated a new meme with his 2011 statement “software is eating the world.” The construction "X is eating the world" has become a snappy way to describe the explosive growth and impact of many new technologies. Incidentally, Andreessen was co-founder of Netscape. This is serendipitous because Netscape gave us JavaScript. We can make the case that among contemporary programming languages, JavaScript is the one that is truly eating the world.

DaVinci Coders – Bootcamp Review

DaVinci Coders – Bootcamp Review

It’s been over a month since I’ve written my last post. And quite frankly, I regret it. The truth is that my last month has been extremely busy. I worked on a couple of projects at DaVinci Coders, had some scheduling issues at my job, and worked through some personal difficulties. But those aren’t good excuses.

Recently, I’ve been reflecting a lot on the last month where I’ve worked on two projects for DaVinci Coders. The first, Shift Scheduler, is an app that allows people to conveniently manage employees schedules. The second, Tracker Request, uses the Pivotal Tracker and GitHub APIs to create a one-stop-shop for managing projects. I want to recap the important bits from my last month at DaVinci Coders.
