A back-end developer is the backbone of any mobile app or website and needs some certain qualities to accomplish day-to-day tasks. First, the back-end developer must know server-side programming languages like PHP, Python, Ruby, Java, Perl, Node JS (software platforms). In addition, it is advisable to study Express (a back-end web application framework for Node JS) and Mongo DB (a document database for modern apps). Second, he must be proficient in using the back-end framework like Symfony, Codeigniter, Yii, Zend Framework, Kohana, etc.
Back-end experts always work hand-in-hand with front-end developers by providing outward web application elements with server-side logic to make the app function properly. This task is accomplished through the use of server-side scripting languages like Ruby and PHP. Alongside making web applications functional, back-end developers are also in charge of the app optimization (boosting its speed and efficiency). Moreover, back-end developers are often faced with the task of creating a data storage solution for storing large amounts of information in the application databases. The latest is an essential component for all web applications since it is aimed at storing information about users, comments, posts, etc. Common databases include MySQL, MongoDB, and PostgreSQL.
Back-end developers rarely work alone. To tell the truth, it is a team sport. They usually work with UX designers, UI experts, and others.
