JavaScript Overview and History

Language Overview: Class-like language with limited but usable class-like and object-like functionality but no formal inheritance nor visibility control, etc.

Many developers are hoping the next version of JavaScript will be a fully OOP language. If you're a working OO developer and need to use JavaScript in an OO manor now, there are many books that help you simulate OOP. One such book we recommend is Pro JavaScript Design Patterns.

Target Platforms: JavaScript is most commonly used to extend HTML by executing code on the browser side when visiting a website. It does have other uses including server side scripting and AJAX.
