Advantages Of Decoupling Application Front-End From Back-End (Ep#2)

Well, we talked about the pros and cons of separating front-end and back-end (Ep#1). At Nazax, we are not suggesting that there are no cons. It all depends on the particular situation, but there are more pros than cons.
Separating front from back-end has so many advantages such as:
1. Scalability. Since the code is divided into 2 parts, you can optimize the code faster and increase resources for the front-end and back-end at a separate pace.
2. Faster deployment. Since a front-end developer’s work isn’t dependent that much on a back-end developer’s work, their code can be tested and potentially deployed whenever they’re done without waiting for the other person’s completion.
3. Modularity. Upgrading your framework can be a real pain. Keeping the back and front-end separate will lessen your chances of breaking the entire website. If your front-end is separate from the back-end, it becomes easier to work on one module keeping the other one untouched. You can increase the update-release frequency.
4. Simpler to switch frameworks. When we’re talking about technology, we should keep in mind that it changes fast. You need to keep up with the latest innovations to remain competitive.
