Typically, when you ask someone to tell you what frontend technologies include, they will tell you – well, everything a user sees in an application. Of course, this may sound like an oversimplification because there are numerous roles and responsibilities that a frontend developer has to implement in their day-to-day tasks.
If what you can put a check mark next to these requirements:
- building visually appealing interfaces,
- being passionate about user experience,
- teaming up with design and backend team and so on,
chances are you need a front-end developer.
While how a website looks and interacts on the surface involves design and front-end development, back-end development includes all the programming and systems that power everything going on below the surface. It is what makes websites work. Even the simplest website has back-end functions required to make things show up properly and allows interaction by users. Databases, APIs, functional code and more all come under this heading.
Full stack developers
Full-stack web developer skills may range from UI based tasks, full scope of front-end programming to handling servers and database programming. Having this in mind, it is no wonder many companies would like these all-around players in their teams and no wonder they are often looking for full-stack developers.
On the other hand, it is also true that it can be demanding task to easily find a full-stack developers to hire.
A full-stack developer usually is of mid-level seniority since it took time to acquire and apply the tech stack they possess.
The term DevOps was created using two other concepts: “development” and “operations”. Of course, it would be a total oversimplification to label it only with these two words. As a matter of fact, DevOps is furthermore a combination of principles such as security, collaborative mode of working, data analysis, and so on.
