The World’s Most Misunderstood Programming Language

Javascript implementations have really evolved over the last several years as Microsoft and Mozilla work to actually bring their browsers up the the specification. But although I’m using javascript in my work more than ever I still have a habit of considering it the red headed step child in my projects. My view is less about the technical merits of the language and more about the type of problems javascript is solving for me which is end user niceties, flow enforcement and validation. Otherwise stuff that end users who weren’t totally ignorant and lazy wouldn’t need. But that’s just where we’re at today, computer and software technology has become the equalizer for small business and is being pushed further and further down the corporate ladder. That means more and more unmotivated users.

Anyway, back on point… someone a link to an interesting short article on why javascript is the world’s most misunderstood programming language which really says a lot about how the language got shoehorned into it’s present role.
