Question for all the full stack developers out here: which do you start coding first: the backend or the frontend?

PS: It's my first time posting, I love devRant's vibes!

    I knew python initially, and a little bit of html. I started off doing flask apps, then later expanded to explore more of front end stuff before diving deeper into backend stuff. I find it's generally better to jump between the two.

    Devrant is giving out vibes now? I thought it was stickers?

    Whichever ticket looks more interesting.

    Really though, backend. I make whatever APIs the frontend will need as I need them.

    I'm starting to find my self beginning with business process flows ( high level for business shareholders to understand ), then technical process flows with more in depth break downs - probably a BA's job but.... I don't currently have one I can utilise.

    Then I'll build up the data layer, apply the backend code needed for CRUD and then throw up a front end that can start interacting, from there is just chop and change FE/BE until it's built depending on the next ticket that makes sense to pickup.

    Backend first because fuck the front end; especially that whole react redux bullshit

    Front and then back initially, but I usually transition back and forth throughout dev cycle.
