JavaScript is a programming language that adds interactivity to your website (for example: games, responses when buttons are pressed or data entered in forms, dynamic styling, animation). This article helps you get started with this exciting language and gives you an idea of what is possible.

JavaScript ("JS" for short) is a full-fledged dynamic programming language that, when applied to an HTML document, can provide dynamic interactivity on websites. It was invented by Brendan Eich, co-founder of the Mozilla project, the Mozilla Foundation, and the Mozilla Corporation.

Python was developed by Guido Van Rossum at the National Research Institute for Mathematics and Computer Science in Netherlands during 1985-1990. Python is derived from  many  other  languages,  including  ABC,  Modula-3,C,C++,Algol-68,SmallTalk,Unix shell and other scripting languages. Rossum was inspired by Monty Python's Flying Circus, a BBC comedy series and he wanted the name of his new language to be short, unique and mysterious. Hence he named it python. It is general-purpose interpreted, interactive, object- oriented, and high-level programming language. Python source code is available under the GNU General Public License (GPL) and is now maintained by a core development team at the National Research Institute.
