What is Front-End Development and Backe-End actually mean. Let me tell you, honestly the first time I heard Front-End Development or Back-End Development I had no clue what they were talking about. The easiest way to explain, (which is how I learned) was the Front-End Developer is for what the viewer sees, UI/UX, Visual Design, and Responsively. Back-End is more along the lines of databases, creating API’s, and computing and storing the logic and information. So what is the difference?
Think of wanting to look up a restaurants website before you go, 80% of people check using their cell phones. If your website is not responsive to their screen, they will click the back button instantly for not being viewable via cell phone. Now those same 80% of people either decide to stick with the restaurant or change. Here is an inside tip, if its not responsive, mine as well call it a website no up to par anymore. Anyways my point being, a front-end developer has to make the screen eye catching in order to literally pull the viewer to want to see more and continue.
Back-End Development is nothing like Front-End Development. When you deal with back-end, their are certain languages that are a must know. To name a couple, PHP, mySQL, Mongo.db and I could just go on. Again however, the CMS programs make that simpler too! Here is an example of that. Say you want a registration form on your website, you could build that using PHP (plus other ways).
WordPress has pre-made forms for you to use and simply set the Email address to go to! Done, simple as that! Back-End Developers deal with the “behind the scenes” of the website. Search Engine Optimization being one or simply having a database period. Without the back-end, you would have a website that looks great, but does NOTHING. Being a Full-Stack is know bot front and back-end development. Again though, CMS platforms are taking over the website world and soon all websites will be made with if not WordPress, some other CMS program!
