Position is one of the most important aspects of poker. Playing in position gives you edge against the other players. If you play after the other players you have all information possible and can make better decisions. For that reason, the best position in a given hand is the Dealer aka Button (BTN) who is the last to act postflop, the second best position is the player to the right of the dealer which is the Cutoff (CO) and it goes like that. There are a lot of good articles online explaining in detail the particularities regarding position in poker and how you should adjust your range accordingly.
The position is called under the gun (UTG) when it is located after the big blind. This position is a big disadvantage because we must then speak first after the distribution of the cards (pre-flop) and then decide to pass (fold), pay or follow (call), or then raise (raise). of the "flop", the first to speak is the player who is "small blind".
It is called "At the button" when you are the dealer (Dealer). This position is the best because you speak last after the flop. For other positions, the tactical situation deteriorates as the button moves to the left, until the small blind.

Position is one of the most important things in Poker, to have a simle description while more close to the button more hands you should play, following this statement this means that from UTG (Under The Gun) you should play only strong hand this is the position next to the Big blind, and now from UTG+1 you should stil play only strong hands but maybe adding 2 or 3 more to your range and this pattern following to mid position to the button when you're on the button you should play a wide range of hands because of the advantage of seeing all the players act before you do... is my opinion
