First of all, front-end development is not just about the design where you will be using Adobe software such as Photoshop, Illustrator, etc.

However, as a front-end developer, you will still have tasks that are related to designing, but not focused, because as a front-end developer, you will be responsible for turning the design into reality.

You are responsible for translating the proposed image of the project website or mobile app into a visible and functional website or application by using fundamental languages such as HTML, CSS, and JavaScript.

As a front-end developer, your task is to bridge the web designers and the back-end developers, translating the design into code whereas the back-end developers can work by plugging in the back-end code for database manipulation, data structure, etc.

Front-end development has a wide scope that requires different expertise, and along the way, you will understand how crucial and how huge it is, but you don’t have to take it in all at once.

Focus on learning the fundamentals and the basics because this will help you become a better front-end web developer in the future, so focus on building a solid foundation.
