The difference between Developers

The difference between Developers

Whether you are considering a career change into the development world, or you are just curious as to ‘who does what’ in the creative agency team, it’s good to know the difference between developers.


The Front End Developer is the developer that works on making the website interactive and user friendly. Usually, Front End Developers code websites using HTML, CSS and JavaScript. A front end developer uses these languages to translate a design into a website.


Other types of Web Developer include the Back End Developer, and the Full Stack Developer that sits in between. The Front End works on what we see on the screen and interact with. The Back End usually consists of three parts: a server, an application, and a database, and the developer builds all of this technology to work together. The Full Stack Developer is able to do both, and depending on their project, they might use different programming languages.


Not sure which route you want to go down? If you are more artistic, go for Front End. If you are comfortable with data, go for Back End, and if you feel like a multi-tasking hyper-enthusiastic web sailor, go for Full Stack, you will inspire and connect both Front End and Back End. The most important thing is to be honest with yourself, your team, and your next interview regarding how natural you feel in one of the positions at the current time. It’s also good to remember that your taste changes in time, and you might find yourself jumping from one to another according to current teams and projects.


We have a fantastic team of web developers who can build you the perfect website. Contact us today & let’s start working on your project!
