What is a Front End?

The concept of front end

The front end of a website represents all the elements with which users can interact. Front-end development consists of designing elements accessible via HTML, CSS and JavaScript.

Front-end developers help improve all the elements that users use directly. One can think of website layout, responsiveness and navigation.

Backend developers usually manage databases, debug websites and improve security. Front-end developers focus on the visual experience of a site.

They can implement specific features, such as contact forms or payment gateways. The front may also ask to develop more accessible features or a suitable color scheme.

Initial development is very important to improve user experience, reduce bounce rates and gain traffic. For a website to have a high-quality front end, it must contain easy-to-use features and a pleasant visual design.
