A full stack developer is someone who understands, and can work across, the “full stack” of technology: i.e. both the frontend and the backend.
Full stack developers are experts in every stage of the web development process, meaning they are well-equipped to get hands on, but can also guide on strategy and best practices.
Most full stack developers have gathered many years of experience in a variety of different roles, giving them a solid grounding across the entire web development spectrum.
Full stack developers are proficient in both frontend and backend languages and frameworks, as well as in server, network and hosting environments.
To get to this breadth and depth of knowledge, most full-stack developers will have spent many years working in a variety of different roles.
They also tend to be well-versed in both business logic and user experience, meaning they are not only well-equipped to get hands on, but can also guide and consult on strategy too.
