What is Front End Developer?

Front-end web development, also known as client-side development is
the practice of producing HTML, CSS and JavaScript for a website or Web Application so that a user can see and interact with them directly.
The challenge associated with front end development is that the tools
and techniques used to create the front end of a website change
constantly and so the developer needs to constantly be aware of how
the field is developing.
The objective of designing a site is to ensure that when the users open
up the site they see the information in a format that is easy to read and
relevant. This is further complicated by the fact that users now use a
large variety of devices with varying screen sizes and resolutions thus
forcing the designer to take into consideration these aspects when
designing the site. They need to ensure that their site comes up correctly
in different browsers (cross-browser), different operating systems (cross-
platform) and different devices (cross-device), which requires careful
planning on the side of the developer.
