Discussion on: What's the difference between Front-end and Back-end development?

These get a little bit weird to define in different places. The heart of the matter typically comes down to back-end development being data centered, and front-end development is typically centered around the display of information to the user. The weird parts come when the front-end code is doing a lot of data manipulation (and there may be a role just doing this) or the back-end code is doing things to directly control the display (less common).
