What does full-stack development entail?

In recent times, full-stack development has become highly sought-after. There are numerous reasons why businesses are eager to hire full-stack developers. These professionals are capable of working with multiple technologies, which allows them to manage more elements of a project than a regular programmer. Their skillset also allows them to save businesses money, as they can take on the duties of a few specialists simultaneously. Full-stack developers are knowledgeable in various stacks such as MEAN and LAMP, which helps them to fulfill the exact requirements of their projects. It is expected that the future of full-stack development will remain positive due to the increasing demand for these experts. The need for full-stack developers is growing as businesses become increasingly reliant on technology and the internet. Therefore, there is no doubt that full-stack developers have a bright future ahead and now is the ideal time for anyone to acquire this skill.

What are the duties and obligations of a senior full-stack developer?

Full-stack developers are highly sought after for their ability to work on both the front-end and back-end of mobile and online applications. They can design visually appealing web apps for businesses, increase the system’s functioning by creating code, and host the database for websites on the server. Such comprehensive expertise is beneficial for companies and enterprises as it saves money by having a single individual perform the work of multiple developers, programmers, and coders. Additionally, having knowledge of both the front-end and back-end of web applications increases the chances of securing a profitable job and career in the software or IT industry. Furthermore, full-stack developers have the added advantage of being able to easily transition between the two operational aspects of web development. Some of the key responsibilities of a senior full-stack developer include:

  • The primary responsibility of this role is to design, architect, develop, review, and test significant applications in the following areas: Wizard of Drop Microservices, analytic dashboards and reports, client-facing applications, and proof-of-concept prototypes. These services will require a keen attention to detail and a thorough understanding of the development process.
  • Currently, many organisations are utilising various approaches to technology, such as Representational State Transfer (REST) microservices architecture, Apache Cassandra, Apache Hadoop, Apache Kafka, Elasticsearch, Redis, Dropwizard, Fluentd, and Angular. These technologies enable organisations to optimise their performance and enable them to utilise their resources in the most efficient and effective manner.
  • Working in close partnership with the product management and design teams, our aim is to identify the feature requirements for a product that can deliver a significant impact on the company’s financial performance, while simultaneously enhancing the customer experience.
  • Work responsibilities are assigned and conveyed to subordinates.
  • Determine performance limits and come up with creative strategies to overcome them.
  • Create and deploy scalable web service APIs.
  • Use both SQL and NoSQL databases.
  • Create and maintain internal forecasting, customer service, and marketing workflow management systems.

How do you get to the position of senior full-stack developer?

Becoming a senior full-stack developer requires a significant investment of time and effort, as outlined in Malcolm Gladwell’s 10,000-hour law. Achieving success in this role is not something that can be done overnight, and requires the establishment of a strong technological foundation, as well as the continual development of essential skills and knowledge. It is vital to have a thorough understanding of all the technologies involved in front-end and back-end development, as full-stack development is a jack of all trades. A solid foundation in object-oriented programming, HTML, CSS, and JavaScript is required to begin, and many remote full-stack developer positions will demand a Bachelor’s/Master’s degree in Computer Science or equivalent experience. Furthermore, staying up to date with emerging technologies is essential for success in this role, so it is important to be proactive in learning about new technologies and trends. Along with technical expertise, senior full-stack developers should also possess exceptional communication skills, as well as outstanding organisational and administrative skills, and an eye for detail.

Qualifications for becoming a senior full-stack developer

In order to become a successful full-stack developer, practice is essential. One should start by honing their skills in both front-end and back-end development, then combine them to create full-stack applications. Additionally, it is important to become familiar with databases and different tools and frameworks to ensure one is not overwhelmed. It is recommended to focus on mastering one technology at a time and keeping up-to-date with the latest technologies. Full-stack developers need to understand both front-end and back-end technologies to be successful. Therefore, it is important to learn the fundamental abilities that will lead to a senior full-stack developer job. With the right amount of practice and dedication, one will be well on their way to becoming a full-stack developer.

  1. CSS and HTML

    HTML and CSS are the essential building blocks of front-end development, and even the most rudimentary web pages cannot be created without them. As such, they are the first topics that full stack developers need to become familiar with on their journey to become a full stack developer. In recent years, frameworks such as Bootstrap have experienced a surge in popularity, as they provide developers with readymade HTML and CSS objects for buttons, forms, and other elements. Therefore, once you have a grasp of HTML and CSS, it is recommended that you become familiar with such frameworks.
  2. User Interface and User Experience

    User Experience (UX) is a term used to describe the overall experience of a user when interacting with a system, product, or service. User Interface (UI) design focuses on the visual aspects of the system, such as the layout, navigation, and the look and feel of the product. UI design is important in creating a positive user experience, but it should not overshadow UX design. UX design is concerned with how users interact with the system and how easy it is for them to accomplish their task. A full-stack developer should be able to make informed decisions about both UI and UX design, balancing the need for an aesthetically pleasing interface with a user-friendly experience. A good UI should be present, but not at the expense of the user experience.
  3. JavaScript

    JavaScript is an essential skill for a full-stack developer, as it is used in both the frontend and the backend of webpages and applications. Object-Oriented Programming (OOP) is a popular programming concept that is applied to JavaScript, and which involves the use of classes and objects. JavaScript is a scripting language used to add dynamic and interactive features to HTML and CSS-based webpages.
  4. Back-end programming languages and frameworks

    Nowadays, the variety of back-end programming languages available is vast, offering developers a wide range of options to choose from. One of the main advantages of such languages is that the underlying principles behind them remain largely the same, meaning that once a programmer has mastered one, transitioning to another is relatively straightforward. Examples of popular back-end languages include Java, PHP, Python, and others. In addition, there are frameworks such as Django, Express.js, Flask, Laravel, and more that offer further development opportunities.
  5. Databases

    Databases are essential for applications, providing a single source of information that is necessary for their proper operation. Full-stack developers must possess a thorough understanding of database management systems (DBMS) and the ability to effectively manipulate databases in order to retrieve and store data. Furthermore, full-stack developers must remain up-to-date with the latest trends and technologies in the database field in order to ensure their applications can remain competitive.
  6. Version management

    Version control systems are becoming increasingly popular in the software development sphere, allowing users to store the codebase of their project at each stage of progress. This feature makes it possible to quickly revert to a previous state of the code should anything go awry or fail to operate as expected. Moreover, if the project is large in scale and involves a team of developers, they can collaborate on the same project simultaneously through the use of multiple branches. The two most commonly used version control systems are Git and GitHub.
  7. REST and HTTP

    REST (Representational State Transfer) is an architectural style used to interact with data that has been retrieved from clients over the Hypertext Transfer Protocol (HTTP). As a result, for comprehensive software development, a good grasp of both HTTP and REST is essential. Furthermore, for efficient communication between a user and a system, a strong knowledge of HTTP and REST is equally important.
