Code School Launches JavaScript.com as a Free Resource to the Developer Community

Website will provide training resources and help developers stay up to date with the latest news, frameworks, and libraries.

ORLANDO, Fla.--()--Code School, a Pluralsight company and online learning destination for both aspiring and existing software developers, announced today the launch of JavaScript.com, a new online learning resource created for the JavaScript community. Code School built the site in response to the growing demand and use of this coding language in nearly every tech field.

“JavaScript has become one of the most important coding languages and pervades nearly everything in the tech world, but because tech moves fast, developers need a way to stay up to date,” said Gregg Pollack, founder and CEO of Code School.

JavaScript.com is designed as a free community resource, geared toward helping aspiring programmers begin learning the language, and helping existing developers stay up to speed with the latest news, frameworks, and libraries. The site features an introductory JavaScript course, resources, and a news feed where stories and articles can be submitted by users.

“When the option to purchase the JavaScript domain came up, we were really excited at the potential of creating a home for JavaScript and its users,” Pollack said. “What we’ve built is just the first iteration of what’s to come. We’re ready to listen to the community and see what additional resources we can provide.”

RedMonk’s most recent Programming Language Rankings listed JavaScript as the most popular coding language for programmers, noting that JavaScript has shown “sustained growth and traction” in the coding community. The language’s ubiquity in the Web and app development industry has led to its establishment as a necessity for software developers.
