Front-end Development

In our technologically intelligent world, access to information seems to be simpler than ever. The goal of web design is to make sure that the content on sites is easy to read. Most people already use a wide range of devices of different screen sizes, requiring the development team to create a responsive and friendly user experience. 

Front-end Development

Front-end web development, also known as client-side development, is the process of creating HTML (HyperText Markup Language), CSS (Cascading Style Sheets), and JavaScript for web pages or a web application. The front-end is a visible part of the website. Users can directly see and communicate with created by web developers’ HTML and CSS coding. Its companion is the back-end (e.g. PHP or Python programming languages) which makes everything work behind the scenes by processing entered data. 

Front-end Developer

The work of a front-end developer requires knowledge of digital technologies such as web development and mobile application development. A front-end developer’s primary responsibility is to create user-friendly interfaces for the browser’s final user. A perfect addition to the front-end developer’s skills is knowledge of UX (User Experience) and UI (User Interface) foundations.

You can also often hear the term “full-stack development” or “full-stack developer”. However, it usually means working on larger web applications that cover both skills of front-end and back-end. 

It’s also important to be familiar with frameworks, which are programming packages for creating websites and apps.

Frameworks for Front-End Development

Front-end APIs and modern libraries have enabled much more flexibility on the client-side instead of processing on the server-side. The need for frontend developers with a knowledge of these applications has skyrocketed.

The most popular frameworks are:

  • ReactJS, 
  • Angular, 
  • Vue.JS.
