What does a Full-Stack Developer do? (And How to Find One)

full stack developer

A full-stack developer is a web developer who can develop software on the client and server sides. Some of the common languages that come under the client-side are: HTML, CSS, JS, BootStrap, React, Angular, and many more. Similarly, a full-stack developer needs to have a working knowledge of PHP, ASP, Python, Java, SQL, MongoDB, and many more on the server-side.

As discussed above, a full-stack developer works on both front-end and back-end technologies. The solutions or software developed by the full-stack developer should provide an end-to-end service. Some of the common stacks which full-stack developers use are MEAN, MERN, LAMP, and LEMP.
