The frontend is a combination of the graphic design and the user interface and is responsible for the look and the feel of the online experience. It is completely user-focused since it defines their experience and shapes their feelings about the website or app. The main challenge surrounding frontend development is that the tools and techniques to create the frontend are constantly changing and developers need to stay up-to-date with the most recent advances.
Almost all of us encounter a frontend on an everyday basis. Every time you read the news’ headlines on a website or open an app on your phone, even with something as simple as a weather or calendar app, you’re interacting with the frontend. That is why it is so important that frontend development is focused on giving the users a positive experience.
While developing a frontend, it is fundamental to make sure that the website or app is accessible to all users. This means creating features that will make using the platform a pleasant experience for everyone. With the development of smartphones and tablets, designers need to be able to adjust their designs to all devices, for example by creating a responsive website. Other important accessibility features are: text-to-speech, keyboard-only navigation, large buttons, and many more.
To sum up, frontend development is essential because it is all that users interact with and therefore shapes their overall experience of the website or web application.
Full stack development includes frontend and backend development. Developers are responsible for the visual design and experience as well as the behind the scenes structure of the website or app. The frontend, as mentioned above, includes everything users interact with while the backend involves the servers, databases and other software components. Both of those elements are highly connected and create a complete system for a website or an application.
