It is no longer true that only engineers can code and that individuals who are not engineers cannot code. That is nonsense. Even a lawyer may now code and work as a front-end and back-end developer if he has a desire for it.

How much do you know about Web Development? I’m going to explain some fundamental concepts to you today, including the distinction between front-end and back-end.

What is Web Development?

Web development is the process of creating a website for use on the internet. To construct features and functionalities, web developers use programming, markup, and scripting languages. When it comes to developing a website, developers focus on the technical aspects, such as designing the layout of the page and integrating apps and images.

This is a typical definition of Web Development, and typically there are three types of Developers in Web Development.

  1. Front-End Developer
  2. Back-End Developer
  3. Full-Stack Developer

Front-End Development

This is the component of web development that codes and builds the front-end parts of a website, which are features that the end-user or client can immediately see and utilize.

Everything you see is the responsibility of a front-end developer, who strives to improve the user experience so that it is smooth. Furthermore, they are responsible for debugging and employing static code analysis, as well as contributing to the overall design.

This includes visual components such as navigation, buttons, and anything else that improves the general usability of a website. To ensure that the visual side (or client-side) of a website functions well, HTML, JavaScript, and CSS are commonly utilized.

  • Front-end languages: HyperText Markup Language (HTML), Cascading Style Sheets (CSS), JavaScript, etc.
  • Front-end Jobs: Web designer, User Experience (UX) designer, Front-end developer, User Interface (UI) designer, etc.

Back-End Development

Back-end development is the work done behind the scenes of a website or application that is not visible to the user. It is the storage and communication between a website’s database and a browser. An application’s back end consists of a server, an application, and a database.

To make web pages and apps operate, back-end developers use back-end languages and frameworks like Java or Ruby on Rails. It’s also their job to keep an eye on the site’s performance, making adjustments and upgrades to enhance the behind-the-scenes functionality.

  • Back-end Languages: Java, PHP, Ruby on Rails, Python, ASP.NET, Golang, SQL, etc.
  • Back-end Jobs: Back End Developer, Java Developer, Full Stack Developer, DevOps Engineer, Software Engineer, iOS Developer, etc.

Full-Stack Developer

Web developers that work on both the back end and the front end of a website or application are referred to as full-stack web developers. For this reason and others, they are involved in all aspects, including both the aesthetic aspect of a site and the data However, full-stack developers can also specialize in a single language in addition to their knowledge of a wide range of programming languages.

Which one is for you? Or is it both?

Now that we’ve established the difference between front-end and back-end, it’s time to decide which one is best for you.

The skills needed for web developers differ depending on the type of web developer, as follows:
