Full stack developer is the most trending job profile currently in the market. So here in this article, we will see how to become a full stack developer.
Who is a full stack developer?
A full stack developer is an engineer who can handle all the work of databases, servers, systems engineering, and clients. Depending on the project, what customers need may be a mobile stack, a Web stack, or a native application stack.
Full-stack comprises of two things, backend and frontend. So, before moving ahead let us see what backend and frontend actually is.
Backend is the server-side of the website. It stores and arranges data, and also makes sure everything on the client-side of the website works fine.
It’s the part of the website that you cannot see and interact with. It is the portion of software that does not come in direct contact with the users.
There is various type of full-stack technologies like MERN, MEAN, and Java full-stack. These technologies are high in number, so to call yourself a full-stack developer you must know at least one of these complete technology stack.
Here is various frontend stack that one can go for.
Surprised? Even I was when I got to know about these many frontend stacks. But one should focus on learning or mastering at least one frontend tech stack. This will help you understand other tech stacks in the least amount of time.
So, once you are done with the frontend just make few projects to implement what you have learned. I consider this as the most important step in learning new technologies.
Now when you are well versed with the frontend stack, its time for giving focus on the backend technologies, which is undoubtedly a lot of fun and is also high paying.
Here is the various backend stacks that one can go for:
Yes, I know that is too much. But once you are done with anyone backend stack, you will find switching to another backend a cakewalk. Don’t forget to make some projects after learning the backend technologies.
Now i.e., 2020, according to the market you should also be good in Cloud technologies like AWS or Google Cloud Platform (GCP), etc. and some container technologies like Docker, Kubernetes, etc. as most of the companies have started using cloud services and containers.
We can see these technologies are innumerable so it is always advised to master at least one of the complete stack. The tech stack which is currently famous in the market is a mix of MERN stack, AWS, and Docker. This stack is certainly in demand these days, but I can’t deny the fact other stacks are also quite good.
Once you do at least one stack thoroughly, you can certainly call yourself a full stack web developer.
