I actually like to code with JavaScript.

It's a terrible language, yes, but I find it fun to work with.

    You shouldn't give a shit about what people think of the languages you use. The only thing you should worry about is that its well organized and properly documented code.

    I agree with @Null-Device. It is a nice language for visual designs and browser application

    I like programming in JS too. That's is why I'm pursuing Full Stack Web Development

    JavaScript is the second programming language I learned (after PHP), and it has always been a guilty pleasure.

    But I always try to avoid using any libraries, such as jQuery.

    I don't mind using jquery for coding speed sake. I can code without it if I want full control and maximum speed, but its helper functions are really damn useful and the code it's more clear imho with it.

    @ramen jQuery is definitely not good. Constantly modifying the DOM using selectors is slow, error prone and simply bad practice in general. There's a reason Vue.js, Angular and React exists...

    @NGPixel I absolutely love Vue.js. my favorite library to work with.

    @ramen jQuery is not good there is no reason to use it in 2018. If you only need certain fuctions of jquery use specific lodash modules.

    just sayin. though not a good idea, you can do everything in js. even machine learning

    @framework true but you need the framework which will
    probably be in some of the commonly used machine learning languages , and anyway, js should stay where it is

    No shame in JavaScript. Just adhere to secure coding practices.

    JavaScript language is good in its ways but a lot of JavaScript written is bad. When we don't see good code we think the language is bad.

    Given the new ES6 and ES7 things are moving forward. And I am happy they are now natively supporting a lot of basic stuff that is required by modern web apps.

    Everything is easy unless you make it complicated.

    I find quite the opposite. I think JavaScript is a good language but I don't like working with it.

    I was avoiding js as a plague, until forced to learn and use it ... now I kinda like it, not using any libs
