As hard as it might seem, a lot of programmers don’t know the different between front-end and back-end development. And I don’t blame them. Actually, this is ok.

So, in this video, I’ll explain more about the difference between front-end and back-end development. What are the main differences between these two fields of software development?

The Front-End Development is the part that users interact with. Everything that you see when you’re navigating around the Internet, from fonts and colors to drop-down menus and sliders, is a combo of HTML, CSS, and JavaScript being controlled by your computer’s browser. The Back-End consists of a server, an application, and a database. A back-end developer builds and maintains the technology that powers those components which, together, enable the user-facing side of the website to even exist in the first place.

So, wanna know more about the difference between those 2? Watch this video and find out!
