Surely a front end web developers role now includes usage of PHP and Mysql, this article needs updating to reflect this. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 81.157.254.237 (talk) 10:37, 20 September 2016 (UTC)


CommentEdit

This article is poorly written and needs a knowledgeable editor. I am not that person. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 23.242.86.78 (talk)

Rename to "Front end web development"Edit

I wish the page were renamed to "Front end WEB development." That's really what we're talking about here. There are other front ends besides the web's.Feugene (talk) 01:50, 28 February 2015 (UTC)

Yes, Front-end web development is a better title. But there already is a redirect for the un-hyphenated, mis-capitalized Front End Web Development, to Web development. The two pages are quite different, so adding {{merge}} seems premature. -- SPage (WMF) (talk) —Preceding undated comment added 19:36, 13 October 2015 (UTC)

hyphenate the titleEdit

You have to hyphenate the adjectival phrase otherwise it can be read as "the front to end development", and that momentary hesitation impedes reading. See http://english.stackexchange.com/questions/34447/is-it-front-end-frontend-or-front-end , and note how most Wikipedia articles correctly hyphenate Client-side foo. I agree with the other topic #Rename to "Front end web development", Front-end web development is a better title.

Front end developmentEdit

This article is titled as a misnomer, as per the content of the article. Front-end is defined as "Of or relating to the part of a software system or online service that the user interacts with: a front-end application.", "Of or relating to the part of a business that is accessible or visible to the general public: front-end operations."

I suggest renaming this article to "Client-side development", which more appropriate reflects it's content. A front-end developer does not necessarily code exclusively using HTML/CSS/JS. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 67.243.151.216 (talk) 22:47, 29 March 2016 (UTC)

Client-side development also includes mobile applications and desktop non-web applications (so does "Front-end development"). Only way to keep the content of this article is to add "web" to the title. 2620:0:1006:1:95AA:4FEB:A35A:F6E0 (talk) 21:45, 31 March 2016 (UTC)

Front end developmentFront-end web development – Please place your rationale for the proposed move here. 2620:0:1006:1:95AA:4FEB:A35A:F6E0 (talk) 21:47, 31 March 2016 (UTC)

  • Support even though no rationale was prevented, because the old title is ridiculously imprecise and the new title makes a lot of sense. Dicklyon (talk) 05:40, 1 April 2016 (UTC)
  • Support per Dicklyon, ridiculously parochial, not about the styling of the front fenders of cars. -- 70.51.46.39 (talk) 10:45, 1 April 2016 (UTC)
