Front-end vs Back-end vs Full-stack Development

Welcome to EZtek’s blog!

Today, we are comparing three types of development: Front-end vs Back-end vs Full-stack development. Read this article to know what these developers do and who is the best to hire.

Front-end Developers

A Front-end developer is responsible for the entire user interface and user experience of a website, as well as its design and overall appearance. They create a basic structure for the website using HTML, Javascript and CSS, then add other visual features to increase its aesthetic quality such as fonts and colors, drop down menus and sliders.

Front-end Developer Responsibilities

  • Developing a user interface that’s simple to use and straightforward, progressively improving it depending on user response.
  • Building rough ideas and using HTML, CSS and Javascript to develop them.
  • Updating a website’s design to make it look and work well on mobile devices.
  • Ensuring that a website looks and works the right way independent of the internet browser used by the end user.
  • Regularly testing and optimizing the website’s front end for usability and potential problems to ensure a better user experience.
  • Designing websites Front-end while considering SEO to guarantee that it is properly indexed by search engines.

Back-end Developers

A Back-end developer is responsible for building and managing databases, scripts and the entire website architecture on a server, application and database. They use server-side languages like PHP, Ruby, Python, Java and C# to build applications and tools like MySQL, Oracle and SQL server to find, save or change data and serve it back to the user in front end code.

Back-end Developer Responsibilities

  • Identifying the website’s primary goals and figuring out how to make them a reality.
  • Ensuring that data is stored correctly so those who need to access it may do so seamlessly.
  • Managing app programming interfaces and ensuring that they are compatible with a variety of devices.
  • Integrating payment systems as needed, allowing users to input data, ensuring that the data is securely kept.
  • Creating website architecture that can be readily updated with future upgrades.
  • Developing various algorithms as well as addressing various issues in the system.

Full-stack Developers

Full-stack developers can handle all parts of Front-end and Back-end programming including server, database, user experience, hosting, data modeling.

Full-stack Developer Responsibilities

  • Assisting design and development teams.
  • Writing code for the Front and Back end of a software app.
  • Ensuring that the website functions effectively on many platforms.
  • Creating user interfaces for a web application.
  • Installing servers and databases on the back end of the software.
  • Updating software with the latest industry changes
  • Addressing different maintenance, security and scalability concerns.

Who should you hire for your project?

With the evolution of modern technology, Full-stack, Back-end and Front-end developers often have to work together, but deciding which of these coders is best for your project depends on the project’s needs.

While employing a Full-stack coder may appear to be less expensive than hiring two specialists – one for the server side and another for the client side, this would double the time required to complete the job and the time savings might outweigh the price benefits.

But from our experience at EZtek’s company, if you’re starting from scratch, you’ll almost certainly require both Front-end and Back-end developers.
