In the present scenario, we are surrounded by various kinds of applications. Our day starts with the application and ends with the same. But have you ever thought about the internal operations of these applications?
After entering the wrong credentials, the system does not allow us to log in. Do you know how? The backend part of an application keeps the check of all our activities.
The system is responsible to manage Servers, Databases, Logic applied, APIs (Application Programming Interface), and System Architecture.
Without a smooth backend, any of your web and mobile application will not perform. Being end-user, we never see what is happening in the backend, but it does play a crucial role in the functioning of the application.
The programmer who works on the development of the backend system, we call back-end developers. The developers work closely with front-end developers, QAs, System Architects, and Project Managers in order to achieve their goals.
Prior to starting working on the project, their main aim is to understand the requirement thoroughly. As we know, the backend is the base of any system and it must perform accurately.
If you blindly develop the backend without understanding the requirement, it will be a huge loss for the company because everything will get disturbed. Hence to become a smart backend developer, you must have a result-driven approach.
There are various backend technologies in which systems are developed. We will get to know about them later in the section. But you should keep in mind, that a backend developer is not bounded by specific technology. The more you learn, the more you grow.
