WHAT DOES A FRONT-END DEVELOPER DO?

Front-end web developers create what users see when they enter a website or use a web application. For web applications, the presentation layer - or "front-end" - is created with HTML, CSS, and JavaScript. These technologies largely run the user-facing aspects of a web application.

HOW IS FRONT-END DEVELOPMENT DIFFERENT THAN BACKEND DEVELOPMENT?

While the front-end is what the user sees, the backend or "logic layer" contains any special functions the app may perform. Backend development centers around a programming language such as Python or a library of pre-made components like Flask.
