What is a front end?

A front-end is the front end of a website or app, also called the User Interface (UI). It is the side of the digital product that the user sees. The term is closely related to front-end developer: a developer who programs the front end of a website or app.

How does a front-end work?

A designer designs the visual representation of a front-end or UI, and a front-end developer converts that design into working code. A website or app is programmed in languages such as PHP, .NET, Java and C++, and there is often a database link (MySQL, for example). Employing frameworks makes programming easier. With a CMS like WordPress, important functionalities do not need to be coded. With the back-end, you customize the text and appearance of pages.

How do you make a good front-end?

The front-end of your website is incredibly important because it is the side of your website that the user faces. If your UI is not up to par, users will have a bad experience. They will leave your website or not use your app.
