There’s no such thing as Front-End Web Development

Wednesday, November 7th, 2007

The problem I have with defining “front end development” is that there is no such thing.

Historically there was software called a “home page” or “web site” that was composed entirely of static HTML pages and binary files, connected by hyperlinks. It was then possible to draw a distinction between “real” programmers, who wrote in application languages like C++ and Java, and “web designers” who only wrote HTML.
