Regarding this, is frontend easier than back end?
In general I agree with you, back-end programming jobs these days usually are actually easier than front-end programming jobs, although it is going to depend on the particular jobs we are comparing. Although the front end jobs are often harder, they are also usually considered less prestigious and pay less.
Subsequently, question is, do backend developers make more than front end? Backend engineers are paid more. It's a cultural bias in software development that the front-end or "gui" is what the "graphic artists" creates, while the back-end is where all the complex computer science theory needs to take place, and should never be questioned.
In this way, which is better front end or backend?
Is front end hard?
Front-end web development is hard because it is unlike that of any other language. When you learn to program in C, you are just learning C. The hard part about front-end development is that it is a collection of many different languages each with their own caveats; HTML.
