Where front end web development involves everything the end user interacts with, back end web development happens behind the scenes server side. This can include database migrations, API integrations, and setting up server side technology.

Through this qualification you'll get a full understanding of what it takes to be a web developer, with a focus on back end web development tools and practices.
