Frequently Asked Questions
What is the difference between front-end, back-end, and full-stack development?
Web development is generally broken down into front-end and back-end development. Front-end Developers work on the “client-side” of web development, which refers to any portion of the site or app that users will interact with, including its layout, design, and interactivity. While there may be some overlap between the work of a Front-End Developer and a Web Designer, the roles are different, with the latter working to create website concepts, including color schemes, content development, and pages.
Back-End Developers work on the “server-side,” which is focused on the functionality of a site, including database interactions, user authentication, server, network and hosting configuration, and business logic.
A Full-Stack Developer is someone familiar with both front- and back-end development.
Unlike many web development courses, BrainStation’s Web Development course focuses on boosting full-stack development skills, helping you learn how to create beautiful websites that are responsive to screens of all types and sizes.
