Frontend vs. Backend Website Development
What is frontend website development?
Frontend website development is focused on what people see when they visit your website developing the user interface and bringing the design to life. Frontend developers take the design, then build it on the website and make it interactive.
What is backend website development?
Backend website development is focused on the server side of the website. Backend developers handle the behind-the-scenes of a website such as a database, custom app functionality and more. Basically, all the information you present and collect needs to be kept somewhere so the website can recall the data it needs to function. Backend developers set up processes to connect the data from the storage to the design
