The front-end refers to the visual and interactive part of a website or application that users directly interact with. This presentation layer includes the entire user interface (UI), the visual design, and functionality that users can see and use. Examples include menus, buttons, forms, and content. 

Front-end web development leverages a combination of HTML, CSS, and Javascript to create a responsive and visually appealing user experience.

Conversely, the back-end management layer is responsible for content management and server-side processes, such as logic and data processing. It powers the front end by processing requests from the user-facing side, retrieving and manipulating data from databases, and returning the results to the front end for display. Together, the front-end and back-end layers work in tandem to deliver a seamless, interactive user experience.
