Decision about JavaScript

I use JavaScript because it is the programming language of the browser and the internet. Although started as a toy language to add interactivity to webpages in the 90s, it has now improved to the point that it can be used to write full blown web applications, desktop apps, native mobile web apps and to program IoT devices.

I use C# because it simple, elegant, easy to read, easy to understand and easy to learn. It is a compiled language which makes it a lot faster than interpreted languages. There is a big community around C# which means a developer can find whatever information he wants. Moreover, tools like Visual Studio makes you work with C# very easily. Last but not least, it is backed up by Microsoft.
