Web Applications: The Difference Between A Front-end Designer & A Back-end Developer
As a practical example; an engine is the main component that drives a car. However, without a body (that is, an attractive outward appearance), it won't be presentable to the end-users - either for purchase or usability.
Relatively, server-side scripting languages such as Python, Java, ASP, PHP, and many others are the back-end programming languages (that is, the engine room of various web applications). Their modus operandi are often unseen to end-users. Conventionally, these aforementioned server-side scripting languages often rely on database interactions for proper functionalities.
As an aspiring IT person, you can either choose to be a front-end designer or a back-end developer when it comes to web applications; the choice is yours!
