After AJAX and jQuery which was a shortcut toolset for writing JS codes next big revolution was NodeJS server development. NodeJS made JS more usable in any environment whether it is a Web Server or desktop application. It was based on chrome V8 engine which is an efficient compiler of the JS language. Suddenly a new world of JS as a programming language emerged out. It was considered as a front-end language but now it became a full-stack language with the huge number of web framework coming in next few years like Express, Angular, React, VueJS and many more.
Looking at the companies involved in JS development you will see that all major player in the modern world is working on some aspect of JS. Google is maintaining the AngularJS framework along with many others, Facebook is leading the React JS camp, IBM is taking care of StrongLoop which acquired express which was the defacto NodeJS framework. Microsoft is working on Typescript which is considered as a new standard of write highly scalable JS programs.
