The modern ages brought new technology which is developing as we speak. With new technology, new jobs have appeared on the market, especially with the rise of the Internet. One of the most famous new jobs is a web developer. The popularity of this job is increasing daily. However, there are different types of web developers, and it is believed that full-stack web developers are the most wanted.
So, let’s start with what actually is a full stack web developer? And why is a full stack web developer believed to always be the most wanted out of all other web developers?
WHAT IS A FULL STACK WEB DEVELOPER?
A full stack web developer is a person who has the ability to work on the front-end and on the back-end portions of an application. In other words, a person who is able to work on the part of the application the user sees and interacts with, and also on the part of the application which deals with database interactions, server configuration, authentication and many others. This means, that once you have a full stack developer, you will not need any other kind of developer, because this one, a full stack web developer, knows everything.
DOES A FULL STACK WEB DEVELOPER REALLY KNOW EVERYTHING?
The question is whether a full stack web developer possesses a thorough knowledge of all the layers, or is the knowledge he or she possesses only vague and not thorough enough? It is important to bear in mind that in order to become a full stack web developer, you need to possess mastery on all things, not to just be familiar with the layers.
IS THE PERSON REALLY SKILLFUL?
In order to become a full stack web developer, you need to possess all the skills you claim to have, Even though some people say that there is a blurry line between knowing something and mastering it, we believe that you should not be disillusioned by your knowledge. Test it. Do not believe to be a master of everything you have used before you used it many times and understood it thoroughly.
THE ABILITY TO ACQUIRE NEW SKILLS
A full stack web developer needs to be able to learn all the time. Things change quickly. So very often, a full stack web developer is not really A full-stack. Why? Because some things have changed, and the things you used to know have improved. So, never stop learning and developing in order to really be a full-stack!
ARE FULL STACK DEVELOPERS REALLY MORE EMPLOYABLE?
Those who are real full-stack web developers have higher chances of getting a job, especially in small companies. However, if this is difficult, try to specialize, become a master and keep learning.
