Why the gap between frontend and backend is closing


Web development has created a divided community with two sides: frontend versus backend. Traditionally frontend developers see backend code as needlessly verbose, while backend developers dislike frontend code for allowing dirty hacks and needing a jungle of ever-changing tools.

However, over time the coding requirements of both sides are growing towards each other. This session will tell the story of de Volksbank and demonstrate how similar frontend code has become to backend code.

At the end of this session all developers should have lost their fear of the ‘other side’ and feel comfortable to participate on any code base.
