Difference between Front End and Back End tasks

Frontend developers work on user interface, what the user can see, while Backend developers have the role to program and structure the core engine application behind the visual UI. Frontend and backend developers cooperate to create the systems necessary for development application, or website programming to function properly. However, they have different roles and tasks and development application difference.

The term “front-end” refers to the user interface, while “back-end” means the server, and application and database that work behind the scenes to deliver information to the user.

The user send a request through the interface. It’s then verified and communicated to the server, which pulls the necessary data from the database and sends it back to the user.

1 – Here are the important technologies used for Frontend Development and application programming

  • HTML: HTML (Hyper Text Markup Language)is the language used for the World Wide Web. HTML files are just static files that have the role to show the content to the end user.
  • CSS: CSS is Cascading Style Sheets. It is a styling language which is simple enough for HTML elements. It is popular in web designing, and its application is common in XHTML also.
  • JavaScript: JavaScript is an open-source & most popular client-side scripting language. JavaScript is used for enhancing the interaction of a website with the user.
  • Also many languages enters in front end development like Bootstrap, jQuery, Angular, ReactJS and much more.

2 – Following are the technologies used in backend development and application programming

  • Web Development and programming Languages, for example Python, C#, Java,, C++.
  • Database; for example SQL Server and MySQL.
  • Server; Backend include Server site technologies like Apache, Nginx, IIS servers, Microsoft IIS, etc. is desirable. Good knowledge of Linux helps tremendously in administering servers.
  • API (REST & SOAP) ; Creating Web API as backend gateway, allowing the front end developer to call these APIs while they design their UIs, in order to execute different backend tasks on server and database.

3 – Full stack developer

Full stack developer, is backend developer and in same time Front End developer. He or she program and develop everything, full Frontend and Backend development application programming. As a general rule, having a single programmer as a Full stack development, isn’t a practical solution, because it is a huge load of work for one person to manage both front and back ends at same time, and especially for big projects.
