What Is the Difference between a Front End Developer and a Backend Developer?
One of the biggest distinctions to be made in web development is the difference between front end and back end development. It’s important enough that developers often think of themselves as being specialists in front end or backend development. This is so common that we have a separate name for those who work in both, calling them ‘full stack’ developers.
What Is a Front End Developer?
Front end developers focus on the things people see when they sit down to interact with a website. They focus on the site’s layout, usability, and responsiveness. They could focus on anything from getting a domain name registered to having animations play whenever a user makes it to a certain point on the page.
What Is a Backend Developer ?
Backend developers, on the other hand, focus on things people don’t see when they interact with a website. They address how well and how fast the site is able to read from and write to a database, for example.
