Frontend Development 2021

Frontend Development
Every business, brand, and idea has a website. As a result, building websites, called front-end development, is one of the simplest and most profitable ways to enter the world of software development.

In a website building, Front-end plays a first and foremost role. As a result of good Front-end development, the website can reach more people and serve the purpose. Front-end development helps optimizes navigation on a website which makes easier for visitor to find what they are looking for on the site. It calls for a clean, well-structed and carefully planned layout.

For 2021 :
Front-end web development has become more difficult in recent years. There's a lot more to it than HTML, CSS, and JavaScript. There are several technologies to master, as well as numerous activities. You will certainly become a good front-end web developer if you have the passion ,discipline and patience.
Frontend and Backend

There are two paths towards becoming a web developer: the back-end or the front-end.

Front-end developers, on the other hand, get to build everything a user touches and interacts with on the screen, such as layouts, information, engagement, etc. Front-end developers are both creative and tech-savvy, and act as the bridge between designers and back-end programmers.

A frontend must provide a good user experience and should be convenient for the end user to operate. It should be able to perform proper validation of any data sent by the user and should be responsive.

Back-end developers build server-side software. They’re responsible for all the performance, stability, security and speed of your site or app, all of which power the front-end or user-facing side.

So frontend or backend it depends on need.

If you just need to provide information, frontend development is more important because you don’t need a backend to display simple content.

If you only need to serve data, an API will suffice, which means backend development is more important (since no frontend is required).

Static and Dynamic Site
A static site that only displays text or images and has no interaction between the site and the user, does not require back-end development.

A dynamic site that requires interaction between the site and the user (such as filling in and submitting a form), does require back-end development.
