Frontend developers code the frontend of a website or application; that is, the part of the website that the user sees and interacts with.
They take the backend data and turn it into something that is easily comprehensible, visually pleasing and fully functional for the everyday user.
The frontend developer implements the website’s layout, interactive and navigational elements such as buttons and scrollbars, images, content and internal links.
Frontend developers are also responsible for ensuring optimal display across different browsers and devices.
They will code the website in such a way that makes it responsive or adaptive to various screen sizes, so that the user gets the same experience whether they’re visiting the website on mobile, desktop or tablet.
Frontend developers will also carry out usability tests and fix any bugs that arise.
At the same time, they will consider SEO best practices, maintain software workflow management and develop tools that enhance how the user interacts with a website in any browser.
