What is Front End, Back End, and Full Stack Software Development?


We are so glad you are here! To get set up…

  1. Please change your Zoom name to first name, last initial, and pronouns, like this: Kayla G. (she/her). Not sure how to do that? Hover over your image in the Zoom gallery, click the three dots, and select Rename.
  2. Heads up! We will ask you to briefly introduce yourself in a minute.


The goal of this session is to give you a general understanding of different areas of software development by…

  • exploring frontend, backend, and full stack software development
  • explaining what we teach at Turing and why
  • answering questions you have or get you connected with someone who can answer your questions

Want to get our attention during the workshop? Raise your hand or type your question in the chat! Let’s practice:

  • Raise Hand: Find the reactions button in your Zoom toolbar and raise your hand.
  • Zoom Chat: Enter your answer in the Zoom chat - How much do you know about the differences between frontend, backend, and full stack development? Absolutely nothing, I have a vague idea, I know all about the differences, or something else!
  • Unmute: Introduce yourself! Please share your name, pronouns, location, and what you’re hoping to get out of this session.
