What does the server side or backend developer?

Well, I decided to look towards web programming and started to learn HTML/CSS, Javascript, Ruby on Rails.

And increasingly began to catch the eye of such terms as Server side, Backend, Frontend... Since the frontend everything seems more or less clear, but with other not so simple! Anyone can show me where(is explanation), or simply in more detail to explain what kind of fruit and what it eats, how much it is promising in terms of choice of future profession. What technology stack mandatory, etc.

Um, what's to understand?:) With client-server architecture familiar, I think? Client = frontend (JS, HTML/CSS, Flash), server = backend (RoR, PHP, ASP.NET etc.). One without the other will not exist, so promising everything depends only on personal preference. On the one hand, the share of JavaScript has been increasing lately, increasingly complex systems appear only on the client side. On the other hand, with "back-end" languages easier to move somewhere away from the web.
I'm going in the opposite direction "from the web" to the web. Okay, but why is it easier to start?! - Eleonore.Wiso commented on October 3rd 19 at 03:06
Inhibit the evening, from your words it is clear that the system is easier in the backend - Eleonore.Wiso commented on October 3rd 19 at 03:09
Now engaged in the front end (and sometimes the back end, but not a lot) and just thinking of going in the direction from the web to the system, but on the frontend: there is an opinion that you might not like (me it is already very zadolbali) all this fuss with the cups, thingies, dropdownli which it is necessary "to wiiiiiii and it is so beautiful closed" and other things. So I also think that the backend you will be bulee the topic. Only this time — IMHO, the front end should at least try to feel what is HTML, how with your backend will continue to work with client programmers. Because it is very unpleasant to work with backendstate, who have no idea about it. It's like the designers hate to work with designers who have no idea how their design will be typeset. - Aracely_Hoeg commented on October 3rd 19 at 03:12
as I understand you), He was sick of this develop frontend) - cleora.Doyle commented on October 3rd 19 at 03:15

Backend programmer earns more mediocre.

Will add my 5 cents.

As a rule, backend developers focus on architecture and other architectural issues :)

Well, one server can only hang on a few customers, so the rules also dictated mainly by the server developers. At least, that's my little IMHO :)

Software products never consist of one file and do it all at once, they are divided into parts. Some part deals with the conclusion of data collection which the user can enter text in forms, downloads, clicks and movement of mouse pointer, sound from a microphone, a camera image. This is called the front-end (front-end). Then it is that part of the software system which is able to save to the database, modified, transferred to another program. This invisible part of the software system called backend (back-end).

Once for the whole site could be answered by a single person. He page in Dreamweaver, sketch, and texts with pictures on the website will upload and hosting will do. And now in web technology so large a variety that one person has become very difficult to know everything. Therefore, there were the developers for front-end developers and back-end. Generalists who know both parts, called "harvesters" or "full-stack developer".

For me, the basics of front-end need to know any web theme, I started with layout, then pulled js, simultaneously got acquainted with php and mysql.
And all is simple)) Now do it depending on tasks) - Eleonore.Wiso commented on October 3rd 19 at 03:12
