Client-side and server-side are also known by their archaic names – frontend and backend. Web development uses specific tools and frameworks to render beautiful looking, robust, and dynamic websites.
Development – whether it’s the web, mobile app, or a desktop app – has been intelligently segregated into a client-side and a server-side.
