Full-stack development vS Front or Back-end separately


How often do you visit Twitter or Instagram? Probably every day. And you face the part of the website, it is called the Front-end part. But when you're trying to log in, or press buttons or sending any data, you’re running the Back-end part. So together we call them Full-stack development. Let’s find out who is better to have in a project  full-stack or front/back-end.

Who is a front-end developer?

Front-end web developers take care of website styling and user interface. As you probably know, HTML is the structural skeleton of a web page. You can think of Cascading Style Sheets (CSS) as the body or skeleton body. CSS allows front-end web developers to change the shape of the body, which in terms of websites is like pre-defining certain sections so that the website is displayed in a certain style.

For example, if the website is a human body, you can use CSS to change the structure of the muscles and the appearance of certain muscles. Now, when it comes to websites, you can use CSS to customize individual sections of your site to determine the look and style it displays. Front-end web developers integrate this "style and look" into a CSS file and add it on top of the HTML file. Whenever they need a particular style, they refer to a CSS file that contains predefined styles.

Who is a back-end developer?

A user-facing website interface should be aesthetically pleasing. But without the software running in the background, the website interface wouldn't even exist. This is what tests the skills of the end developer. Back-end developers work on the server side.

To sum up

InterCode support only the idea with Full-stack development. We believe that when one person is responsible for both the front end and the back end part, then he/she is able to do the work best because of doing it from start to finish. What do you think about this?
