Understanding Front-End vs Back-End Compliance in Web Development

In this meeting, the State Changer discussed their experience using different web development tools and highlighted some issues with compliance in the fintech and betting industries. They mentioned concerns about the terms of service and privacy policies of certain tools like Lee Weweb and Wized. They also raised questions about how React works in a compliance environment.

The State Changer explained that compliance issues mostly lie in the backend, where data is stored and processed. Frontend code, such as HTML, CSS, and JavaScript, is static and does not handle sensitive data. Compliance issues are more relevant to the backend infrastructure, such as databases, endpoints, and environment variables. They emphasized the importance of understanding the distinction between frontend and backend in relation to compliance and user experience. The State Changer gave examples of how different web technologies functioned in terms of data transfer and rendering. They highlighted the role of frontend code being served to the client and the backend handling data and logic. They mentioned tools like Weweb and Webflow that focus on code generation for the frontend but do not handle data, minimizing compliance concerns. They also discussed the concept of single-page applications (SPAs) for faster user experiences and compared them to server-side rendering for better search engine optimization. Overall, the meeting provided insights into compliance considerations in web development and the different roles of frontend and backend technologies.
