LESSON 4: FRONTEND VS BACKEND
Here are some common questions which we get….
“What’s the difference between frontend and backend programming?”
What’s the difference between a website and an app?Have you ever thought about it?
Trivia ⁉️: Is Facebook.com a website or an app?
With backend, you can now store and retrieve data from your database.
- 💀 HTML for structure
- 👩🎤 CSS for beautifying
Backend allows you to store data and retrieve for display.
For example, when you add Audrey as a friend on Facebook, Facebook will store your friend’s data and link it to your account in their database!
So now, you’re on the sofa scrolling your newsfeed 📱, Facebook will then go to its backend to find your friend’s posting and then link it to the frontend to display it to your newsfeed!
That’s why you can see Audrey‘s post on Facebook! 💃
Now that you know the difference between frontend and backend, you might be thinking, “how should I start?”
