A full-stack developer has all the keys to the house – there is no door that you cannot open. Also, it provides an unparalleled freedom to simultaneously work on front-end and back-end development. Similarly, it evaluates the capabilities and potential of your website in real-time without having to wait for another developer to review if what you’re desiring is possible or not.
Being a full-stack developer means being able to write server code (back-end) running on the OS which grabs data from the database and displays it to the user in the web browser (front-end). Below is the list of some of the basic skills to be into a Full Stack Developer package:
Git, GitHub & SourceTree
Git is a source code control system aka version control system. It tracks changes to your programs and lets groups of people collaborate on the same program. Git is a command line program with no user interface.
In the web development world, you encounter the terms “front-end” and “back-end” pretty frequently. Just to refresh, front-end development is all about the parts of a website that users see, while the back-end is more about the “behind the scenes” functionality.
A programming language is a vocabulary and set of grammatical rules for instructing a computer or computing device to perform specific tasks. In other words, programming language refers to high-level languages, such as BASIC, C, C++, COBOL, Java, FORTRAN, Ada, and Pascal.
Databases and Web Storage
Data is stored into tables inside a database. This means that all the data stores in a standardized maner. Thus, tables are the simplest objects (structures) for data storage that exist in a database.
A server is a computer that serves many kinds of information to user or client machines. Usually a server store information of a users & executable program on it. Also, there are many online server providing companies around the word they provide different types of server service to client according requirement.
HTTP & REST
REST means that the main concept you are using while designing the application is the Resource: for each action, you want to perform you need to define a resource on which you usually do only CRUD operation, which is a simple task.
Unit and End-to-End Testing
Developers write “unit tests” that in reality are ‘end-to-end’ tests. They test the entire flow of the application from start to the end. There is no isolation of units and the notion of the unit is the whole system, along with all of its external dependencies like databases, queues, caches, and other services.
A good full stack developer is characterized by the following traits
- An analytical mind
- A love for learning
- An attention to detail
- Creative vision
