As its name represents, ‘full-stack’ development refers to complete web development including front-end(user interfaces) and back-end(server and databases).

Front-end is the visible part of the website to the end-user through which user interacts and it is responsible for the user experience. Backend focuses on processing and functioning of the website and involves server-side web development and database management.

A full-stack developer must possess skills to develop a complete website with an ability to work on all aspects of building a finished product from design, development to the QA and maintenance.

The revolutionary usage of JavaScript for client-side and also server-side programming has popularized the ‘full-stack’ approach.


Popular Tech Stacks:

  • MEAN Stack: MongoDB, Express, AngularJS, Node.js
  • LAMP Stack: Linux, Apache, MySQL, and PHP
  • RoR: Ruby On Rails, PHP, MySQL
  • MERN: MongoDB, Express, ReactJS, Node.js
  • Django Stack: Python, Django, MySQL

Popular languages for front-ends: HTML, CSS, JavaScript

Backend: PHP, C++, Java, Python, JavaScript

Instead of front-end developer and back-end developer separately, full-stack fulfills both the roles by hiring one full-stack developer.

It is a popular model for modern web development where more than one framework, library, and technology is being used to deliver a superior experience.
