    Lightbulb Front end devolopment begining

    Hi Guys,

    I want to start my career as front end developer, so in this direction i learned HTML5,CSS3,Javascript,Jquery though online w3 schools. But i have few questions/doubts, which i am writing down below ,please clarify my doubts

    q1). It is known that most of the web applications are developed in .Net or Java environment. My doubt is some attributes available in HTML5 are also available in .Net platform for eg: In HTML5 , while creation web page, we have differnt input types such as text box, button , check box for inputing data to server. But these can also be implemented in .net , with out going to HTML5 . on e more example form validation can be done using Java Script or by validation controls of .Net.

    So my question, if major part of the application is done in .Net , then why one should develop with HTML or Java Script,

    q2). what are roles and responibilities does the front end devoloper do,is he devlop forms only or any othe tasks.

    Please clear me on above,

    Thanks

    There are even more choices than you listed. Everyone has a system in place that they use. Some might be Linux/UNIX, or a Windows Server with ASP.net, or whatever. Some companies only use C++ or JAVA (not javascripting). Some only like to use Perl.

    Pick one and go with it. PHP/MySQLi is popular ... that's why many of us know it pretty good. I also use Perl (which everyone incorrectly calls it CGI).

    First of all, I don't know who came up with the term "front end developer" but front-end developers are like fairy godmothers, unicorns, and intelligent comments from urban elitists on Twitter. None of these things exist. You're either a designer or a developer. Those are the roles. They're pretty clearly delineated as well. Front-end developer is just a fancy way of saying "designer who can do some Javascript and might know how to implement a jQuery fadeIn effect". Yeah, I'm going to get flak for that comment, but let's be realistic..

    I don't know where "it is known that" most of the web applications are developed in .NET or Java. Usually when someone says that, it's something they heard or read on some obscure blog written by a journalist wannabe that took a sample size of say 15 sites and went, "here are some important statistics about development" without really backing it up. In other words, it's not really well-known. Look at it this way...there are something like 38,000 members on this forum and I've seen maybe 2-3 other people who actually work in .NET besides me. Java? I don't think anyone here does. But...that's development.

    Regardless of the server-side programming used for development, you still need HTML to display the output, and some of the things that you mentioned have certain style flaws. For example, .NET validation error messages generated by the controls display by default in bright red text and as such usually don't fit the design. Someone needs to come along, take the control, edit it, and then add the appropriate CSS to go along with the new control. That's where the designer comes into play...the designer works in concert with the developer to generate a more suitably styled validation message.

    Okay. I'd like to apologize to all fairy godmothers for implying that they don't exist and comparing them unfavorably to front-end web developers. I pledge to learn from my mistake and move forward and be more open and accepting of fairy godmothers in the future. I have attended several Fairy Godmother Pride rallies, FG meetings, and bought a sheer shimmering flag to hang over my office desk.

    Discrimination against fairy godmothers is wrong, and I have truly learned my lesson.
