Slide: Why JavaScript? Let’s go back 25 years and understand how this language evolved.

Apart from Internet Explorer, Netscape Navigator was the only available browser in the early 90s.

Browsers were supporting only static content with HTML and CSS.

Everyone was using the web to just read information like how we read newspapers.

There was no support for actions in the browser.

So to make the web and browser better, JavaScript was introduced.

Using JavaScript, users were able to interact more on the web.

Slide: ECMAScript ECMAScript is a standard for scripting languages such as JavaScript, JScript, etc.

It is a trademark scripting language specification.

ECMAScript ensures the interoperability of web pages across different web browsers.

Until 2015, there were no proper JavaScript new feature release cycles.

In 2015, massive features were introduced, which were released as ECMAScript 6 popularly called ES6.

From then, every year new features were added and released every year as ES7, ES8, ES9… and so on.
