Surely you’ve wondered what is Ux, UI, Front End and Back End? They are names that are often used in the development arena, but what exactly are they? People answer you!
Many professionals, when hiring a developer, end up not knowing the areas of expertise that each professional has, so we are going to bring out the differences in each area in a clear and simple way.
In our content on the 7 stages of software development, we comment a little about everything a “developer” can do within their project, but not always a UX developer knows how to work in the Back End, and then there can be some difficulties in the process.
So, What Are The Differences Between Front End And Back End?
User Experience professionals, or the famous UX, correspond to the continuous improvement of the usability of their system, that is, they are concerned with producing a simple and intuitive interaction between user and machine, which translates into satisfaction when performing tasks in an uncomplicated way. Good UX Design follows system guidelines, understands user context, creates personas, and makes good use of regional conventions (like left-to-right reading in Western countries).
User Interface Design or UI professionals are responsible for how the customer sees their product, going beyond the color scheme, fonts and buttons, but a whole graphic development that incorporates the perception of the company itself (its brand is sober, solid, reliable or is it more accessible, closer to the customer?), through animations, responsiveness, visual tips and suggestions that guide the interaction and even market analysis.
Let’s talk about Back-End developers? They are responsible for planning, building, implementing and maintaining the technological structure that forms the basis of a website. Without this work, nothing on the internet can work, as everything is integrated into the engine connected to the servers.
And the Front End Developer? They are the ones who access the design files and create a plan to transform that design into functional code – which can be written in one of the languages available for this, such as html, css, or even without code, that is, it is the responsible for transforming the user experience into something functional and pleasant.
See, each developer works in some area. Usually Front End professionals already have some knowledge of UI and UX to facilitate their work, but they are not always able to generate the design before applying it. The Back End, on the other hand, is the guy who stays behind, behind the scenes, leaving everything lined up.
So when we talk about the stages of development, it is very important for you to analyze whether your planning has the right professionals for each stage.
