A line of code is basically an order given to the computer. The coding vocabulary is specific as the computer can only interpret certain things.

Your computer’s job is to transform your code or the code written by developers into understandable and beautiful things.

There are two types of code:

– Front-End code

– Back-End code

The Front-End code is all you see. It can be text, hyperlinks, images, videos, buttons, colors….The most popular languages for Front-End coding are Html and CSS.

In contrary, the Back-End code is all you don’t see. This is all the stuff that has to do with keeping and using data, asking something to the user… For example, the fact of sending data using a form in Back-End coding. Examples of languages used for Back-End coding are PHP and Javascript.
