Should you be a Full Stack Web Developer in 2021?

Hello everyone, I’m Ghazi Khan, working at HCL Technologies as Technical Lead. I have been a Full Stack Web Developer in my career and want to tell you guys why and how you should be a full stack web developer in 2021. This article is my opinion and what I have felt about being a full stack developer have been.

Who is a Full Stack Web Developer?

A person who works on both sides of the web development which is Backend and Frontend. As both Backend and Frontend web development is a specialized part or we can say specialized branches of web development and a Full stack web developer manages to work on both and he/she delivers the complete application. Also, some full stack developer learns project management, visual designing, DevOps, etc which makes them stronger and independent in their profession

What are the benefits of being a full stack web developer?

Here are some lists of the benefits of being a full stack developer:
  • There are a lot of full stack developer jobs in the industry
  • Acquires various technical skills 
  • Versatile in a career in terms of development path
  • Independent when it comes to tasks.
In my career, I have seen being an independent developer as a very big benefit as when you start working on a task you don’t have to be dependant on backend services to be ready or UI to be ready. You are the one who will do both and very little chance of getting issues like API services are not up to the mark or not in sync with UI etc.

What all you need to learn?

You will have to learn HTML, CSS, Javascript for Frontend development, also it is an advantage to know frontend frameworks or libraries like ReactJS, Angular, Vue, etc, and any DB either NoSQL or SQL, and any of the backend programing language such as Java, Python, PHP, NodeJS, etc.
