There are generally two parts to any web application: the front end, or client side, and the back end, or server side. The front end consists of the web pages you see and interact with in your browser. Those pages are usually designed by front end developers.

But how…


  1. can someone tell me how to make these type of presentations or video animations or by which software

  2. great job my friend,keep it up, I have your book about Head First Go.

  3. So I am a junior web dev (front-end) naturally am still confused an awful lot about back-end I, however, wish to go full-stack but here's my problem, with all the choices out there which language and/or resources is better for beginners like I among Python/JS/Mysql, etc… the second question is I get it that backend is both server + database but how exactly do we use the 2 together are backend languages like python, node, Mysql used to fetch resource from web server or is it the database or both i think a quick example would be of much help, thank you for reading.

  4. yea javascript is backend language but php not backend. yea you right. yea yea. php is front end language. ha ha

  5. Great intro, but it lacks some fundamental skills that are required. I actually made a video about 10 topics I believe every software engineer needs to know (regardless if you're doing front-end or back-end): https://youtu.be/YspXT_d2iT4

    I'm a self-taught engineer and for the first 5 years of my career, I completely ignored Computer Science, but when I encountered knowledge gaps in important scenarios at work, I decided to delve deeper and I was surprised by how much knowing the underlying principles helps you write clean code and great applications.

  6. So i'm learning Python, and have learnt a little Coffee Script just cause (I find it very easy to understand easier than Python and would have before knowing any python, i'm pretty sure). I have been debating getting Windows Certifications, CIsco or even IBM. Server Side at least part of it, but I also want to also code not just everything on the Windows Certs. Anyone have any input on thye certifications and how long it may take for say a Windows MCSA (later the MCSE Obviously but MCSA I feel will be good to enter or my second job in the field), or how about IBM Certifications? You don't hear about it really art all, however IBM has a Location just 25 minutes away and sadly I missed a no experience needed job for fixing PCs hardware mostly and soldering, witch I can handle and it's not exactaly Ideal but an entry into the business field. I thought with IBM certifications it may help me get a good job at that location.

  7. This video: tries to express a very complex concept and the details of a very laborious job in about ten minutes, and does a rather good job of it

  8. Hi, in order to learn backend web development I need to learn javascript+ node.js + SQL, that's it ??

  9. Can anyone tell me how this channel is making videos like this? How these animations and beautiful interfaces are implemented to this video? I mean which video editor is he using?

  10. Developers who practice a lot get to learn a lot! Competitive web development companies like https://www.drcsystems.com get projects which are big pocketed, highly sensitive and a higher level ones. The developers get challenges while working on big projects! Back end developers can get good exposure at learning server-side programming languages.

  11. Protip: When talking about SQL on't ever say 'S – Q – L', always say it as 'Sequel'

  12. So…. This video isn't for back-end developers. I found out at the end . Thanks….*sarcasm*

  13. As Javanese who live in Java island, I assure you that Javanese people do not speak in Java or JavaScript Language


    I have a ONLINE BUSINESS IDEA with a Business plan & Marketing Plan already created. I have a WEBSITE MOCK UP already I just need a WEB DEVELOPER who is willing to BUILD THE WEBSITE ON CONTRACT without money up front I will pay you when the website is LAUNCHED AND WORKING and I will pay you from PROFITS FIRST AND FOREMOST YOU WILL BE PAID FIRST.


  15. PHP shits on all the other back end languages. The demand for PHP will always be big.
    Don't be stupid and jump on every new language/framework just because its "hip".
    Ruby on Rails is nearly dead after the big hype.
