Backend Development refers to the server-side of development. It focuses on data, databases, application logic and website architecture. It deals with behind-the-scene programming that occurs when performing any action on a website. Unlike frontend development, backend development is everything the user doesn’t see. It’s what powers a website. Backend developers utilize languages like Ruby, Python, C#, and Java in conjunction with APIs, servers, and databases. A backend developer’s responsibilities include knowledge of algorithms and data structures, awareness of security concerns and hack prevention, reporting and analytics, and backup/restore technologies.
If you’re considering a job in backend development, SC Codes offers courses in Ruby Concepts, Ruby Basics, and Ruby on Rails Applications. Completion of all three courses also qualifies you for a certificate of completion.

A full stack web developer is capable of producing both frontend client software and backend server software. Programming for this role would require knowledge of browsers, servers and databases. Most often a full stack developer will find themselves building both the front and back of a website at the same time. They create seamless user experiences that often require the help of a graphic designer to create the perfect interface. This role is versatile, challenging, and requires multiple skillsets. Full stack developers are most like a jack of all trades who get to experience the full spectrum of programming.
