If you’re new to the world of IT and Software development, or you’ve been out of the game for a while, then you might have heard front-end and back-end developing, but are not sure what exactly it is.

Luckily Industry Connect is here to help!

What is a front-end developer?

A front-end developer is someone who works on a website, specifically on the side that the user interacts with; so the front-end, or client side of a website. That includes anything that you’re going to see when you come to that website.

Front-end developers work with back-end developers who are working with databases and the servers. They also work with designers who give them the mock-ups and wireframes that they then build out.

What makes up front-end development?

There are three key components to any website; HTML, CSS and JavaScript. Let’s look at Industry Connect’s website as an example. If you go to our website you’ll see at the top that there’s a header and there’s a video of the lovely Juanita. Those are both tags that are created in HTML and HTML is basically the structure of the site. Any paragraphs, any content, any imagery is all going to be coming in through HTML.

The second layer on top of that is CSS, or cascading style sheets. CSS is basically what makes the website beautiful, so that includes colours, different font styles, different spacing and padding.

The third component is JavaScript which is basically what makes the website interactive with the user. Think for example of a button. If you click on a button on our website, it’s going to interact with you and then lead you to something else, and that’s usually built in JavaScript.

How do I become a front-end developer?

If you’re interested in becoming a front-end developer, the above are definitely the three key components that you need before you start applying to any jobs.

Here at Industry Connect, we have special bootcamps which teach you the basics of these three essential components of software development, as well as a whole lot more.

At the end of the bootcamp, you can join us as an intern, learning and working in real-time projects, with experienced developers. You’ll also learn soft-skills such as job interview techniques and CV building.
