The Back End Development section of this book is focused on the behind-the-scenes work that powers every web application. Back end developers work on the server-side of web development, creating the infrastructure, databases, and APIs that make a website or application work.
In this section, we will explore the fundamentals of back end development, including server-side programming languages like Python, Java, and TypeScript. We will also cover database management and design, including SQL and NoSQL databases. We will also delve into API design and development, which allows front-end applications to communicate with back-end servers.
Security is also a crucial aspect of back end development, as it is responsible for protecting user data and preventing malicious attacks. We will cover best practices for secure coding, data encryption, and network security.
By the end of this section, you will have a solid understanding of back end development and the tools and techniques needed to build and maintain robust and scalable web applications. Whether you're building a simple blog or a complex web application, this section will provide you with the knowledge to create a secure, efficient, and reliable back end.
