When you start "native" program, there is no compilation process, when you start JS program, there is compilation. so let's call first language "compiled" and last "interpreted"

— AOT compiled and JIT compiled

— 😂

— There are terms for this

— AOT = ahead of time compilation
JIT = just in time compilation

— Anyway for me it was more surprising v8 because the amount of versions

— I never reached 112 in the fourth digit of semver

— Even i never used the fourth digit 😂

— Okay, but compiled is in past tense of English language

— Well v8 is a very large project

— Yeah
