Which professionals are paid more Back End or Front End?

I am confused between the area to choose because I like both.

Traditionally back end developers got paid more but it seems that employers are starting to pay more for Javascript/front end.

Go for it! learn both front-end & back-end skills and you'll become a full stack developer who can handle jobs on both ends, full stack developers get more payment in average over the front or back end developers, because the company pays 1 employee to do the jobs of 2 : )

If you're going full stack and you're doing twice the work, you should get twice the pay! 😄 I've never seen it work out that way, but we can dream. Learning both skill sets is always handy for communication during collaboration, but I think marketing yourself as a full stack developer often invites abusive clients (or employers, if going the job route). It takes more skill in the boundary-setting arena to navigate managers who don't really know what they want and try to pass that off to people who they assume are jacks-of-all-trades to over-function for them and "just figure it out." I think discovering which side (front or back end) plays to your strengths and charging more for skills specialization has the double advantage of forcing the managers to retain management duties (keeping your stress level down) while getting paid your just deserts as an expert. My opinion.

Learn Both and earn with both :) But start with Back-end. Because it is handled mostly by one language if you are learning to build websites using django or flask(python frameworks). Front end on the other hand needs many skill html,js,css etc .... Which one might find embarrassing to learn all in one go. So I would go with back-end then Front-end That's how I am learning django
