Put simply and withot over complicating matters

server is a computer running a web server.
client is somebodies computer requesting web content from a web server via a web browser

code in the context of the question is a scripting language such as java script or vb script or some other language

server side code is code that runs on the server, the code itself is never sent to the client, only the results of the code are sent to the client.

client side code is code that is sent along with the rest of the web content to the client and executed on the clients computer.

Does that help ???
