One interesting thing about today’s digital age is the vast array of career paths it presents. New innovations and developments are taking place everywhere, and all of them are creating new positions to support them. The full stack developer is such a position created by the innovation and technologies. This article is discussing the skills required to become a successful full stack developer.

What is Full Stack?
The development process of web application or website can be categorized into three different sections. They are Front-end, back-end, and database related processes. Traditionally, each of these sections is handled by developers who are experts of that section alone.

Later with the development in the associated technologies, a new set of developers were born. They are full stack developers. In simple words, a full stack developer is a programmer who can work equally well with both front-end and back-end technologies. They can be considered as a jack of all trades or an all-purpose resource in the development process.

As you might have guessed already, this kind of versatility requires quite a bit of skill to become a full stack developer. Let’s get into that details.

The skills Required
As we said earlier, a full stack developer has to be proficient in both back-end and front-end operations. So, the list of skills required is a little longer than the usual job titles.

HTML/CSS: let’s begin from the basics. HTML and CSS are two basic building blocks of web development. While the HTML allows the developers to add content to the website, CSS enables alteration in the look of websites or applications.

JavaScript: This one is also a basic skill. JavaScript is a mandatory language to make a career out of full stack development. A survey conducted in 2016among the developers suggests that JavaScript is the best-suited programming language for full stack development.

Back-end Languages:  To handle the back-end processes, at least one of the following languages is a must for a full stack developer.

  • Java
  • SQL
  • C#
  • JavaScript
  • Python
  • C
  • PHP
  • IOS
  • RUBY/RAILS

Naturally, it is better to have fluency in more languages. However, a good full stack developer should work towards an ultimate proficiency in one chosen language.

HTTP/HTTPS: For the communication between clients and servers, HTTP and HTTPS application protocols are very important. HTTPS holds more value nowadays due to the growing concerns over security.

Databases/Web Storage: While developing websites and applications, the developer has to use a web storage facility to store data. So, the concepts behind relational databases and memory storage are mandatory for full stack developers.

Web Architecture: It is one of the more advanced skills. It is important for a developer to know how to structure their code and how to structure data in the database. The design project complexity involved in the development process makes such skills almost mandatory for the job.

These are the important skills you must learn before starting a career in full stack developing. Any full stack developer course will be consisting of all these technologies as part of their syllabus. Also, remember that it is important to practice these skills just as attending a full stack developer tutorial.
