Now that you've explored the basics of programming languages for web development, it's time to challenge yourself.

Compare a few programming languages. What are some of the unique traits of JavaScript versus Java? How about COBOL versus Go?

Next steps

Begin a study of the various languages available to programmers. Try to write a line of code in one language and then redo it in two others. What do you learn?

You'll find many of the tools that a web developer might need in the MDN documentation for client-side tooling. To further your knowledge, on this site, try selecting three tools that weren't covered in this module, and explain why a web developer would use them.
