What is ECMAScript?

ECMAScript is a standardized version of the programming language JavaScript. It is maintained by the ECMA International organization, and it is the basis for the development of the JavaScript language.

ECMAScript defines the syntax and semantics of the language, as well as the standard libraries that are available to JavaScript programs. It is designed to be a lightweight, interpreted programming language that is easy to learn and use.

ECMAScript is widely used to build web-based applications and services, and it is supported by all modern web browsers. It is an essential part of the modern web ecosystem, and it is a key enabler of the dynamic and interactive web applications that we use today.

ECMAScript is a standard, and as such, it is updated and revised periodically to add new features and improve the language. The most recent version of ECMAScript is ECMAScript 2021, which was released in June 2021.
