Front-end development, also known as client-side development, refers to the part of web development that deals with the user interface and user experience of websites and applications. Front-end developers are responsible for building the visual and interactive elements of a website or application that users see and interact with.
Some specific tasks that front-end developers may be responsible for include building responsive layouts, creating interactive features, implementing animations and transitions, optimizing website performance, and ensuring accessibility for all users.
Front-end development is an important aspect of web development because it directly impacts the user experience of a website or application. A well-designed and functional user interface can improve user engagement and drive business results, while a poorly designed interface can lead to user frustration and decreased engagement.
