Since it is new year's eve I'm going to make it easy for myself.
I think it was a few years ago when Netflix blogged about how each client had their own server component and how this made the client development easier. A few weeks ago I read about this again in the context of micro services. The term Backend For Frontend (BFF) was coined.
You might have heard the recommendation that your web server should not return the Server header to reveal exactly what software is being used. It even says so in the RFC. Given how hard it was to remove the Server header when using .Net HttpListener you might wonder what is really the right thing to do here.
