Is there any other option?  :P

Your world... It´s cool? Or it sucks?

I answered 'Back (functions, classes and such)', although to this day, regardless of the language I use, I cannot explain why. Maybe its the same mentality that makes some kids want to watch TV, and others want to take the TV to pieces to look inside and see how it works.

Back... it's way more interesting to see data pop-up all formatted and pretty or watch a login happen before your eyes.

I voted for front and back.  When I've being doing back end stuff for hours/days I really would prefer to push a few pixels around without syntax errors; when I'm out of decent ideas about how to make some impossible colour combination look half-decent or the CSS just refuses to behave, I really would prefer to be using logic and performing behind-the-scenes wizardry.
Legend has it that reading the manual never killed anyone.

I voted back since I suck at designing (front).

For me it's back also.  Design has never really been me.

This poll sucks. There's no "both" option, plus it's already been done recently.

Actually, since it's checkboxes, all you have to do is select both :P

I also voted front and back since the question was about programming, not design. I'm not the greatest at graphics and actual design, however, all the front-end coding with Javascript and/or ActionScript, I have been using a lot recently in addition to my work with PHP (and now some perl).

Never mind, I'm tripping. It already read and voted in this poll, it's the same poll I though I voted in before. I read Andy's post and realized.

I chose back mainly cause I suck at making stuff look good... I can make stuff look neat, just not appealing (well, they're one in the same to me but not to most people)...

I'm voting both. I'm fairly decent with graphics, XHTML, and CSS, while at the same time being able to use PHP well.

In programming, there's no wrong way to skin a cat, just more efficent ways of doing so.

I voted back.
I do quite an amount of front-end programming and design, because of freelancing but I always like the back-end heavy projects.
