re: Backend or Frontend First? VIEW POST


I do fullstack, and have always found it easiest to build the backend first. The big advantage of doing it all fullstack is that if/when something is identified that was overlooked, the one dev doing it all can make the necessary changes (disclaimer: most of the stuff I work on is traditional MVC, so the frontend and backend are somewhat intertwined, as opposed to having a full out JavaScript client application which exclusively communicates over APIs).

As a few of the other folks who have answered have said, if you have dedicated frontend and backend teams, then more planning up front probably will save a lot of churn going forward.
