Q: How to explain Back-end Engineering to a child?
A: Imagine, you are entering a confectionery: there are delicious-looking cakes and fantastic sweets in the window — that's Front-end. But there is a room in this shop where pastry chefs bake everything and store their ingredients. A place where all this sweet magic is actually created. That's Back-end.
