What programming language does Lisk use?

Lisk's codebase is written in JavaScript utilizing Node.js. Node.js serves as the underlying engine for code execution in Lisk Core. Node.js is an open-source, cross-platform JavaScript run-time environment that executes JavaScript code server-side. Node.js uses an event-driven, non-blocking I/O model that makes it lightweight and efficient. Node.js is one of four components utilized in Lisk Core.
