Front-End and Back-End Web Development: All You Need to Know

You might get bored of reading about web design and development topics, app updates and tech trends. Lets, jump into the thoughtful & a comparative discussion of front end web development and back end web development, making a difference in the web development world.

We know, sometimes you stuck in the chaos of picking front end developer or a back end developer to create the best online appearance for your business. That’s why it seems important to post this write up that the difference between development and design of websites or web apps leads to more of a distinguish around front-end and back-end development. Although, both development tools play the crucial role in the creation of a new website or application.

Start with Front End Web Development

Front end development is mainly focused on the client side development where developers create a website or web app with the help of tools and techniques of the front-end. It is usually visible to the visitors in the formation of an interface that users can see and interact with.

Front end development is the procedure of developing a site with the tools like HTML, CSS and JavaScript. JavaScript is the most advanced language which generates fonts, dropped down menus, buttons, transitions, query forms, etc. The techniques of front-end, help users to see data in well-organized design and manner.

Dig into the Back End Web Development

Back-end part of the applications is not visible to the users. The ingredients include in the back-end recipe are — server, database and applications, in which development takes place with the help of server language and database.

Technologies or tools are used to build the back-end part of the site are the platforms well known as CakePHP, Ruby, CodeIgniter, make the back-end development practice much faster and convenient for back-end developers.

Counter Part:

The terms — ‘Front-end’ & ‘Back-end’ taking account for separate activities when user and developer started understanding the difference between designing part and coding part of the website or application.

In the front-end, everything you see on the site on your computer browser is the part of coding — HTML, CSS or JavaScript. However, in major back-end languages like PHP, Ruby, and Python,etc.

In front end development, the libraries and platforms, making the coding part easier and make the performance of back-end code faster. It is a connecting link between the designer and back-end developer, in which front-end coder takes the final designs to embrace it into the front-end code and then pass on it to back-end developer so that he can perform his part of coding.

In simpler words, front-end code interacts with a user in real time while back-end system interacts with a server to return user ready results.

Example will help to get clear idea –

When a shopper visits any eCommerce site and sees all the products in different colors, sizes, etc. informative blogs, appearance to which they interact, is front-end part of a site. In the other part, when they enter their information, put things in their shopping card, payment information, all saved on the server, is back-end part of the site. In a broader sense, things that can be seen in the browser are made of Front-end tools and all the information you saved on application stored it in a database that was created on the server are made of Back-end tools.


At the end of this thoughtful discussion, we reach out to the conclusion is that both the part is equally important for developing any site or application. Developing a site is one challenge and creating it with the evolving tools of the Front-end is another challenge, but our web developers are the capable enough, and they are constantly aware of the updates in the field. Our developers have the knowledge and expertise in first selecting the best code language and framework for your site before developing it and then work on the front-end and back-end code accordingly.
