So, without further ado, let’s dive into it.
It is a high-level, multi-paradigm, just-in-time compiled language that has prototype-based object orientation, dynamic typing, and curly-bracket syntax.
Some of the responsibilities a JS developer needs to carry out include:
Designing and developing dynamic web applications
Improve the UI/UX technical feasibility
Participating in the different software methodologies to tackle project development
Building pre-written code libraries
Developing end-to-end systems with other teams
Writing scalable codes
Test, analyze, and debug the code
Optimize web app for maximum scalability and speed
Data structures represent the format used to manage, organize, and store data to boost efficient modification and access. Put simply, data structures are collections of data values, the functions that can be applied to them, and their relationships with each other.
And as a JS developer, you must be aware of Type Coercion, and Type Casting (Explicit and Implicit) to accurately work with the data values.
Client-Side Frameworks & Libraries
Thus, to become a JS developer, it is necessary to learn about these frameworks.
Server-Side Frameworks & Environments
While most of the work using JS is done on the front end of the web application, JS is not limited to it. Instead, you can also run it outside the browser using an extremely powerful runtime environment - Node.js.
Task Runners & Module Bundlers
It allows developers to write programs in a way that you can execute a potentially long-running task while still responding to other events rather than waiting for the current task to be completed.
Some of the asynchronous functions that you can encounter in a browser are
Accessing microphone or camera using ‘getUserMedia()’
Making HTTP requests through ‘fetch()’
Using ‘showOpenFilePicker()’ to ask the user to select a file
While they may not come in handy often, it is still beneficial to learn (just in case).
To put it simply, you divide your codebase into multiple files AKA modules when your application gets large and complex. ECMAScript Modules and CommonJS are popular ways to package JS code into modules.
Deployment & Hosting
Once you are comfortable with other concepts of JS and create your own project, you need to understand the way to deploy it on a live server.
Heroku, GitHub, AWS, Digital Ocean, Firebase, and Netlify are some of the production-ready environments that you can access to deploy and host your project.
