Backends are developed using different languages based on the developer or customers preferences. The backend also consists of the web server and storage of the system which it supports. But even though the backend contains what makes the site/app function, the front end is still just as important as it is what is presented directly to the users. Through mainly html front ends bring the actual user experience into play and help to dictate the functionality of a website even though the frontend is not directly involved in the execution of the functions.
I chose this article as it was very helpful when it comes to understanding what exactly a front end is and why it is important when developing something such as an app or website as it truly is the entire user experience. The user experience overall can make or break an app or any other type of programming which requires a front end and therefore the front end development process is very important.
I feel as though an article like this would be helpful not only to myself but to my peers as it thoroughly explains what a front end is as well as what a backend is. This helps fully differentiate the two so that there is no confusion in the development stages of either. Both frontends and backends are similar but also drastically different in how they are developed and the purpose they serve. This article helps to differentiate the two and helps the reader gain an understanding of what is included in each in order to develop an effective system that thrives for both the developers of the system and the users of the system. I would recommend this article to anyone questioning the difference between frontend and backend as well as anyone wondering how to develop an effective api in general.
