What is a typical day in the life of a Front-end developer?
Front-end developers create and improve the visual architecture for websites and apps. More specifically, once the designer creates a complete visual branding and online presence for the client, then the Front-end developer turns designs into reality via coding. Front-end developers think in user experience too, but their focus is on the code. They are responsible for building adaptable layouts for every device. Also, they actively contribute in all phases of the Project Life Cycle from requirements analysis to deployment and support. This needs a deep knowledge of the browsers, operating systems and devices, as they are often tasked to ensure the quality of the code across various browsers (Google,Chrome,Firefox,Safari) and mobile devices (IOS, Android, Tablets etc.). The result of this architecture must be customer friendly and useful. However, in many cases bugs are undoubtful to happen. Being familiar with testing and debugging processes is crucial. Debugging is finding all the errors the tests uncover, figuring out why and how they are happening and finally solving the problem. So, troubleshooting and problem-solving skills are required, as these professionals are comfortable with days spent debugging and writing code with navigating multiple programs.
