REST APIs can be FE or BE depending upon which company and team you work for. At IBM FE devs were responsible for coding it in Java. Don't ask me why lol. The separation there is to indicate the skills that don't necessarily overlap, but I can see where the confusion could come into play. Thanks!
Oh... here's where you've explained it to someone else. :-)
We're a place where coders share, stay up-to-date and grow their careers.
We strive for transparency and don't collect excess data.
