According to our most recent survey of the most popular programming languages, JavaScript is one of the most used languages at the moment, and also scores very well on the list of languages coders want to use. It’s no surprise, then, that a strong community has sprung up on Twitter, GitHub, and elsewhere of developers discussing JavaScript, sharing insights and code, or just musing on the developer life in general.
