Full-stack Development Levels

The full-stack developer profession is becoming more and more in demand. One reason is that the division into FrontEnd and BackEnd is gradually losing its relevance. Such a specialist can implement both sides of the application – both client and server. As a result, the job of a Full-stack developer is very well-paid.
In this article we will explain the Full-stack development levels.

Server, network and hosting environment

  • Scaling applications, what hardware options and limitations exist for this.
  • In the world are well-known such concepts as multithreading, and the state of the race. However, you are likely not to encounter this.
  • Full-stack specialists can interact closely with DevOps. At work, it is very helpful to be able to receive error messages from the system and the availability of logging.

    Data modelling
  • The data model may be imperfect, and then to take into account what it does not cover, in business logic and at higher levels, there is a need for a rather strange code.
  • The Full-stack specialist knows how to develop a properly functioning relational model, and what external keys, indexes, views, search tables and more are needed for it.
  • Full-stack specialist understands non-relational and relational databases and understands the advantage of the former over the latter.

  • You must master HTML5 / CSS.

User Experience (UX)

  • The main thing for the user – a working product, in terms of this approach full-stack-specialist is very convenient.
  • If the system is adjusted correctly, the user will not have problems with the wrists or eyes.
  • Error messages from JavaScript specialists should be understandable to ordinary users. And if something has stopped working, then you should apologize for the forced inconvenience.
