Hello, I just completed the API’s Microservices section. And it got me wondering: what does back-end do that front end can’t? It felt like everything that I was doing through node.js could be done in a different way simply using all the front-end stuff I’ve learned. Serving files for example: is that so different than just using an anchor element to accomplish showing the new file? Or when someone submits stuff of a form: that info can be handled in a front-end manner as well as the back-end manner.
Obviously my question is a very fundamental one, so there’s a fundamental thing that I’m not grasping. Can someone explain it to me, thx.
