Discussion on: I'm a frontend developer. Or am I?

Front-end = code executed in the browser.
Back-end = code executed on the server.

However, I'd expect any developer that classifies as one to at least have a little bit of knowledge about the other.

Being a front-end developer is context dependent. Being a front-end developer that does design-heavy work with light JavaScript than a front-end developer who works on complex React applications.
