Front-end developers work on what the user can see while back-end developers build the infrastructure that supports it. Both are essential components for a well-functioning software or website.
The term “front-end” refers to the user interface, while “back-end” means the server, application and database that work behind the scenes to deliver information to the user.
The back-end, often known as the server side, is made up of three parts: a server that gives data on demand, an application that channels it, and a database that organizes the data.
For example, customers interact with the front end when they browse shoes on a website. The information is stored in the database on the server once customers select the item they desire, add it to the shopping cart, and authorize the transaction.
When the client inquires about the status of their delivery a few days later, the server pulls the required data, updates it with tracking data, and displays it through the front-end.
