Hi Guys,

That is a very broad question, well, it use to be a simple question, not anymore.

Javascript used to be front-end web development, but then nodeJS came out so we can use it for back-end website like well, plus things like electronjs and react native, we can build cross platform apps as well

jquery is one of the many JavaScript libraries, it makes DOM manipulation easier and can be used for AJAX. but jquery not has competition from reactJS, vueJS (and maybe angular, not sure) given that works better for more extensive DOM manipulation)

and libraries like axios and fetch use promises instead of function call backs, so there also jquery has tough competition.
