“Front-end” engineers are the people who build the parts of Web sites that you actually see.
That’s opposed to “back-end” engineers, who work on all the stuff behind the scenes — for instance, like storing information you enter (like your name) in a database, or making sure that an e-commerce site can take your order.
When working with someone like Bridges, you should know as much as you can about different types of technologies. You also shouldn’t assume a transition to another platform is easy.
