To me, "backend" is anything that is hidden by a front end. Whatever the server side does that is not directly visible at the client side would be backend. But if that server side code generates HTML/CSS/... that is sent to the client, it is definitely not hidden to the client. So I am surprised that anyone would call that backend.
Java was originally designed to be executed in the browser, in the front end. That never became any great success, but while it lasted, Java was a frontend language. Today, it is used by quite a number of backend applications at the server side. So the front/backend is not necessarily tied to the language/tool itself, but to how it is used.
Yes, this is a better definition of what I was trying say, thank you.
A human being should be able to change a diaper, plan an invasion, butcher a hog, navigate a ship, design a building, write a sonnet, balance accounts, build a wall, set a bone, comfort the dying, take orders, give orders, cooperate, act alone, solve equations, analyze a new problem, pitch manure, program a computer, cook a tasty meal, fight efficiently, die gallantly.

Wait til you find out they ask for React but actually use Angular and their front-end devs design their database tables, handle key optimization, etc.
Unfortunately you can't rely on job postings or titles to know what they actually want. You've got to ask in an interview. I've seen Junior Developer postings that sounded more like they wanted a Project Manager. Java dev positions where I found out they don't even use Java anymore. A back-end position that wanted "Photoshop skills." HR is a mess right now for software in my experience.
Is it logging in, or is it logging on? Either way, I'm having problems.
Her is the situation, I'm able to log in to CodeProject just fine from my home laptop. I've recently received a replacement laptop for work. And from this new computer, I can not log in to CP. Anybody experienced this? I used to log in from my old work laptop just fine.
Side note, my home laptop is a 2006 Gateway. Yes, I've thrown more memory in to it, and installed an SSD, but it keeps chugging along nicely. On the work side, I am now on my 3rd DELL Craptop since 2018.
Remember, no matter where you go... there you are.
I log in fine from desktop, Surface, and phone - have you tried clearing your CP cookies? Are you using the same browser on both? Do you remember your password, or do you let the browser handle it for you?
If you can't login from your work computer, there may be a number of issues:
1. Try turning the computer on before attempting to log in
2. Make sure your computer has an internet connection - weird one, I know, but it seems to be related somehow
3. You should login using a browser; it's possible to do it in Word but rather convoluted
4. Make sure you're at codeproject.com before attempting to login; logging in at other sites will not log you in to CodeProject
Sorry, not trying to be rude (honest!) but illustrating the fact we need a little more info... What happens when you attempt to log in? And is your "work laptop" at work, or is it at home on the same connection as your own one? Does the new one connect over a VPN? Follow the usual debugging steps - what's different between the two? What clues do you get from any error message?
Finally, remember that CodeProject is just a bit of fun; shouldn't be used for anything serious like work!
If something has a solution... Why do we have to worry about?. If it has no solution... For what reason do we have to worry about?
Help me to understand what I'm saying, and I'll explain it better to you
Rating helpful answers is nice, but saying thanks can be even nicer.
