What Is A Front-end Developer?

What is a front-end developer?  That’s the person that designs what the end-user sees and how they interact with a website or application when using the internet.

If the general public is using a website that adapts to their device or operating system with ease and they can easily navigate it with no distractions, then they have the efforts of the front-end developer to thank.   Front-end developers have to be fluent in HTML, CSS, and Javascript among other skills because they are the bridge between the user and the server or “back end”.  

The designs they produce help users navigate websites with confidence and ease.  This is particularly important for websites who are dealing with potential paying customers.  A poorly designed website can lead to an annoyed potential customer moving on to a better-designed competitor.

As far as career prospects go, there are currently thousands of front-end developer jobs available with a median income approaching $70,000/year.  A couple of things you will need to keep in mind are that front-end developers are expected to have design as well as execution expertise.  You will be a more valuable employee if you add effective and engaging design to your list of skills.  Also, it’s important to learn Javascript as well.  Most front-end design projects will feature heavy use of both of these skills.
