What is Full Stack Development?

Earlier we used to categorize our developers into either Web Designer or Web Developer.

In this article, we will look at, What is Full Stack Development? This article will cover the insights into full-stack development.

The person dealing with all the design and UI was the front-end developer and the person behind the scenes (database, code) was the back-end developer.

Umm.. then from where this Full Stack Developer came into frame???

Web development has been advancing day by day with its fancy frameworks, and developers are also becoming smarter.

➥Full Stack

Full Stack is a combination of both front-end and back-end. They work on the frontend, backend, database, and debugging of web applications or websites.

As the line between what can be done on the front end versus back end increasingly blurs, more developers are becoming what we call “full-stack.”

Most of the companies are nowadays looking for employees who can do both frontend and backend with equal ease. Here are the skills required to become a full stack developer.

Front-end Languages:

  • HTML
  • CSS
  • JavaScript

Front-end Frameworks:

Js: React Js is a JavaScript library that specializes in helping developers build user interfaces or UIs. But you should be somewhat familiar with JavaScript and JavaScript Libraries for this.

AngularJS: AngularJS is a JavaScript open-source front-end framework that is mainly used to develop single-page web applications (SPAs).

It is a continuously growing and expanding framework which provides better ways for developing web applications. It changes the static HTML to dynamic HTML.

Bootstrap: Bootstrap is an open-source and free to use front-end framework which is used to create modern websites and web apps.

It also supports JavaScript Extensions. It supports many HTML and CSS templates for UI elements such as tables, forms, buttons.

jQuery: jQuery is a JavaScript library that is a lightweight, and supports “do more by writing less”.

The main purpose of it is to take a lot of common tasks that require too many lines of code and wrap them into methods you can call with a single line of code.

SASS: It comes under the category of most mature, robust, and reliable CSS extension language which is used to extend the functionality of an existing CSS of a site including everything from variables, inheritance, and nesting with ease.

Back-end Technologies: 

JavaScript: JavaScript can be used as both (front end and back end) programming languages.

js: Node .js is an open-source runtime environment for executing JavaScript code outside of a browser. One needs to remember that NodeJs is not a framework and it’s not even a programming language. Most of us are confused and understand it’s a framework or a programming language. We often use Node.js for building back-end services like APIs like Web App or Mobile App.

PHP: It is a server-side scripting language that is designed mainly for web development.

Java: It is one of the most popular and widely used programming languages and platforms. It is highly scalable.

Frameworks for backend includes Django, Rails, Laravel, Express, etc.


MongoDB: MongoDB is a document-oriented NoSQL database used for high volume data storage. Instead of using tables and rows as in the traditional relational databases, MongoDB makes use of collections and documents.

Oracle: Oracle database is a relational database management system. Oracle Database is an RDBMS with the largest market share.

SQL: SQL stands for Structured Query Language. It is mostly used to communicate with a database.

It is the standard language for relational database management systems. SQL statements are used to perform tasks such as update data on a database or retrieve data from a database.
