After reading the Introduction, this is the follow up;

In this lesson, we’ll talk about introduction to front-end. Also, we would know our three main objectives that we are going to learn through-out this course, This is a very important lesson, i will be adding the codes whereby you don’t have to write much of your own at this point until we get to later lessons.

Main objectives:

  1. Front-End Development
  2. Back-End Development and,
  3. How the Internet Works

The next we need to understand is the difference between the front-end, back-end web developer, and who a full-stack web developer is.

Front-End Development: also known as client-side development is the practice of producing HTML, CSS and JavaScript for a website or Web Application so that a user can see and interact with them directly. This is basically what the user of a website sees and operate.

Back-End Development: is a type of programmer who creates the logical back-end and core computational logic of a web application. The developer creates components and features that are indirectly accessed by a user through the front-end. This is basically what the user of a website does not see because it is at the back end. Back end web development include languages such as Java, Ruby, Python, PHP, .Net, etc.

Full Stack Developer: is a type of programmer who creates both the client side/front end and logical back-end of a web application.

 

How the Internet Works

This is an entire college major, as a developer, you don’t need to get the entire knowledge about the internet. All we need to know is  HTTP, IP, Domain Name, URL

  1. HTTP: Stands for Hyper Text Transfer Protocol used to transfer web pages from one computer to another
  2. IP: Stands for Internet Protocol which is a unique number that identifies a computer, website or a resource (files) on a computer network ( 99.55.54.50)
  3. Domain Name: Is a user friendly name used to easily identify a resource  on a computer, website or a resource (files) on a computer network (E.g. vincenttechblog.com/)
  4. URL: Stands for Uniform Resource Locator used to access or request a resource on a website (E.g. https://vincenttechblog.com/category/web-development/ )
