Front-End Or Back-End?


Recommended Posts

Not sure who you have been talking to... but "Front End Server Side" makes no sense to me. My understanding is that it's usually split between front end (often called "client side": HTML/CSS/JS) and backend (often called "server side": PHP/.NET/Ruby/etc.). PHP is definitely a backend language, since it's processed by the server on the "back end" before it gets displayed to the visitor.

Front end is also called 'client side' ... as in client computers vs server computers. The client side language in the web app world is JavaScript. There used to be others, but it all JavaScript. 


Server side languages are back end and they include PHP, Ruby, Java and others ... they run on the server.
