I’m planning to apply for front end developer jobs. The problem is that, I’ve only worked for my self for last couple of years (freelance), so I don’t know what to expect from job in actual company. I assume I’ll need to work tight with designers and back-end developers, which is fine with me, but does that mean that I’ll need to be experienced in design and know several back-end programming languages as well?
I also saw that some job advertisements require you to know asp.net and mvc, php which I can’t picture to be requirements for a front-end development.
So, (in general) what are requirements that modern front-end developers need to meet?
The line between “back” and “front” moves, depending on the project and/or company.
One company might be referring to the difference between core framework APIs and forward-facing PHP+MySQL code, while another might be distinguishing between HTML and Photoshop.
At the end of the day, though, just trust the job description: if they’re asking for PHP, you’ll be using PHP (and be expected to know how to).
