A look at all the fun stuff you can do with JavaScript, in the cloud!

Traditionally, JavaScript is the language of the web, and it still is. But today it’s so much more. With the advent of server-side JavaScript and JavaScript support in major cloud platforms, JavaScript’s power increased dramatically.

From building, maintaining, optimising and deploying, the end to end development and delivery process is possible with JavaScript in the cloud.

Cloud platforms give us the tools, elasticity and scalability to create high performing applications without managing the physical infrastructure.

Take advantage of the cloud while using a language you already know: JavaScript!
