Front-end vs. Back-end

Week 1 · Lesson 2 · 7 minutes

What is front-end? What is back-end? Let's make sure we understand


  1. Repeat after me: "Front-end is how things look"
  2. It's all about: Images, content, & structure 
  3. HTML, CSS, JavaScript - There are only ever going to be 3 front-end languages! 


  1. Repeat after me: "Back-end is how things work" ('re repeating these aloud right?) 
  2. It's all about:Logic & data
  3. Ruby, Python, PHP, Java... and so many more languages you could choose from.
