Everything You Should Know About Full Stack Development Companies

Full Stack Development Companies

 

Full Stack Development has its roots back to the times when there was not a major distinction between the front end and the back end development. With more sophisticated apps and tools being developed, dedicated developers were separately required  for the frontend and backend Development. However, since the last decade, Full stack Development is in the trend as it enables the developers to have complete control over the project. Therefore, the Full Stack Development Companies are now trying to hire more efficient Full Stack Developers.

Prerequisites for a Full Stack Developer:

 

  • Knowledge of back-end development.

  • Proficiency in multiple languages such as Java PHP, C# etc.

  • Proficiency in JavaScript frameworks such as node.js and react.js

  • Ability to understand and implement databases.

  • Basic designing aptitude to generate new creative and innovative ideas.

 

So what should Full Stack Development Companies focus on?

As stated earlier, a full stack developer must possess both an artistic as well as a logical approach. An artistic approach is required for the frontend development where a logical approach contributes in the development  of a robust back-end architecture. Let’s now have a point wise look on the things you should know about Full Stack Development:

  • Coming to the front end development part in full stack development, the leading tools are HTML, CSS, JavaScript Frameworks and other tools. With these tools, full stack developers carry out the designing part. Thanks to JavaScript frameworks, with their help, a full stack developer is exempted from the worries of programming from scratch.

  • It’s a good idea to have a good knowledge of angular.js, vue.js and react.js as they are the leading frameworks brought into use by Full Stack Development Companies. However, having mastered one of them, and having a good idea of the other two along with JScript which is the backbone of these frameworks, is a must for a full stack developer.

  • Apart from the client side Development​ as mentioned above, a good amount of responsibility rests on the server side or the back-end development. This can mostly be carried out by mastering techniques pertaining to databases, laravel, along with server configuration.

So as per the above mentioned blocks of information related to full stack developer, you must have got by now that a full stack developer has his part in wide roles of development. A full stack developer is a person not mastering the server side or client side development to very deep, but yes, he can give his bit of effort by contributing to both frontend and backend development to catalyse the development process. Furthermore, to become a good full stack developer, a beginner can start with learning stack development, for example, say, MERN. MERN consists of MongoDB, express.js, react.js and node.js. It covers all the aspects from the front end to the back end development.

Confused Between Mean Stack And Full-Stack? Here’s The Difference Between The Two

Today, we would talk about two terms that appear related but have a different kind of relationship than what appears by name. And those terms are mean stack and full-stack. Following two paragraphs give a basic understanding and the table shows the difference between the two:

                mean/full stack

Mean stack:

The very first meaning that the term has, is related to a web framework. Mean stack is the framework which can be perfectly allocated to a medium scale web application project. It is an open-source and free JavaScript framework. Mean stack bestows an ample number of advantages on the developers. One of the prominent advantages is code transfer which allows the developer to develop a web app on a fast pace. Other benefits are scalability, worthwhile costs, use of domain-specific language and high compatibility with cloud services.

On the other side, if we talk about the other mean stack that is the type of developer, it has a meaning which completely differs in nature. Mean stack developer is the developer who has practical knowledge of working on MongoDB, ExpressJS, AngularJS or ReactJS and AmbarJS, NodeJS etc.  

Full-stack developer: 

Full-stack developers are those who are well versed in front end (technologies such as HTML, Bootstrap, AngularJS, KnockoutJS, NodeJS, PHP, ASP.net) and back end development. In many cases, they are also the ones working on the database, dev-ops based developments, mobile apps etc.. They are those who have hands-on know-how of OOPS, C#, Java, Python, PHP etc. 

The full-stack developers take care of the basic functions of a website such as atomization, deployment or organization, design, application and optimization. They set up the whole website and make sure that every single function of the website works flawlessly and continuously. Highly skilled full-stack professionals also have a thorough knowledge of cloud platforms, mostly IaaS and PaaS. For large scale website development projects, full-stack developers are an ideal choice.

Difference between Mean stack and full-stack:

 

MEAN STACK 

FULL STACK 

“Mean” in the mean stack is an abbreviation of a web framework. Full-stack is related to the type of developer.  
It is employed in app development along with being the type of web developer. It is exclusively the type of developer.
Mean stack developer is excellent for a company who wants to go for app development. Full-stack developers can be the best choice for companies searching for resources for front end and back end development. A full-stack developer can solve both the purpose perfectly. 
Mean stack developers are suitable to be allocated for small to medium scale projects. Full-stack developers can be a perfect match for medium to large scale projects.
Mean stack developers already have the know-how of BFS study. Full-stack developers need to learn the BFS study separately.

Conclusion:

Above mentioned is the difference between the two. As a business, before assigning a project to a company, one must be aware of difference between the two prominent types of developers so that a wise choice can be made.
