The modern frontend is a rich client application operating of a spreading dataset. However, remaining the paradigm of the client-server architecture such applications still require server-side code part of which we, the frontends begin to write, fighting with backends. Along with this come the questions: how to write server code? Can the whole backend be ported to JavaScript? Will it be an enterprise code level? Is Nest what everyone was waiting to start writing a real backend?

Let's figure out what a backend for a frontend is, how to write it correctly, and why Nest doesn't solve anything when we talk about architecture.

Andrey Melikhov

Before becoming a frontend developer, Andrey was engaged in the development of geophysical equipment. He was writing assembly code for the microcontrollers and was solving the problem of data transfer by kilometer noisy cable. Then he got a bit bored in the frontend, but recently discovered a lot of poorly researched (at least in Runet) low-level areas associated with the issues of generating machine code from JavaScript. He continues to dig deeper and shares the results with the community.
