If you're new to programming, this guide will teach you about backend development. It's broken down into easy-to-understand steps so you can learn at your own pace and get help when you need it.
As a beginner, this roadmap will provide an overview of what you need to know to start with backend development.
A program on someone’s computer that can handle the front-end requests.
This means that the backend communicates with the database to store and retrieve information. Backend code is what makes your website responsive or interactive.
Suppose a waiter specializes in interacting with customers (the user interface kind of work) and a cook specializes in kitchen work (the backend of the store).
Coding is one of the most important skills you'll ever need to know, so we've broken it down into bite-sized pieces for you to learn at your own pace and get help when you need it.
Things need to know before you start working with backend development:
a. How does the Internet work?
b. Difference between HTTP vs HTTPS?
c. Browsers and how they work?
d. What is all about hosting?
e. What do you mean by DNS and how it works?
f. Learn a little bit about the OSI model.
a. Terminal Usage
b. Memory Management
c. Process Management
d. Thread and Concurrency
e. Basic Terminal Commands
f. Version Control System (Git)
a. Learn about HTML, CSS, SCSS
c. Basics of CSS frameworks and JS frameworks
It's essential for developers to know an application's structure. Users interact with the frontend, while the backend generates the code that runs it. The backend ensures that everything looks decent internally while the frontend ensures that everything appears good externally. You must have some programming experience before learning how to use an API.
To advance their coding abilities, backend developers must master a programming language. Starting with a programming language's fundamentals—syntax, variables, data types, functions, objects, and execution—is a good place to start. Apart from them, be sure to become familiar with its peculiarities.
The most widely used programming languages for an application's backend include:
A database is a structured information collection that is often stored electronically in a computer system. The two main types of databases are SQL and NoSQL. Where NoSQL databases are document, key-value, graph, or wide-column stores, SQL databases are table-based.
1. Relational / SQL Databases:
2. NoSQL Databases
The process of monitoring and managing changes to software code is known as version control, commonly referred to as source control. Version control systems assist software development teams in tracking changes to source code over time. Also, learn about these concepts:
A collection of operations known as an API (Application Programming Interface) enables software programmes to interface with microservices, operating systems, and external software components. To put it simply, an API transmits a system's request from a user and returns the system's response to the user.
For each programming language, frameworks have been created to speed up the development of backend applications. You can learn any framework below according to your preference:
The Internet is a hazardous environment! We frequently hear about denial-of-service attacks making websites unavailable. Millions of passwords, email addresses, and credit card numbers have also been exposed in other high-profile cases, putting website users at risk for both financial loss and personal embarrassment.
These (or any other) types of attacks are what website security is there to protect against. The act or practice of safeguarding websites against unauthorized access, use, modification, destruction, or disruption is the more precise definition of website security.
Learn about these concepts:
Backend testing is a technique for testing software or web applications by checking their server-side or database code. You should be aware of the following tests:
Continuous integration (CI) and continuous delivery (CD) represent a culture, a set of operating principles, and a set of practices that enable application development teams to deliver code changes more frequently and consistently.
A general, reusable solution to a regularly occurring problem in software architecture within a specific context is what is known as an architectural pattern.
Learn about these concepts:
1. Web Servers
b. Paid Services
After you have completed the full roadmap, it's time to build a large real-life application. You can accomplish this by working on open-source projects. I recommend you some projects that you can start building.
You can follow a general outline of important topics on this blog. Keep checking back for fresh blogs on backend interview preparation.
