What exactly does a back-end web developer do?
Essentially, they’re computer programmers who develop the technical components that allow the user-facing part of your website to exist. They provide the foundation upon which everything else is built – and they make sure this foundation is as sturdy and powerful as possible. Working behind the scenes to keep things running smoothly.
They’re skilled in highly technical programming languages such as Perl, Ruby, and PHP. They use these languages to integrate your website with applications that work behind the scenes, helping with things like security proofing, data collection, and any major structural changes. They also play a key role in preventing bugs.
