A “Full Stack” Web developer has a thorough understanding of how each element on a website interacts. Being aware of how each element is intended to interact with other elements on a website creates a seamless user experience. Web Design can seem like an endless puzzle which is why it’s crucial to work with a developer whos’ familiar with all of the pieces.
The quote below is a simplified example of what differentiates a full stack developer from a regular website developer.
“A full-stack developer has all the keys to the house — there is no door that you cannot open.”
“A Full-Stack Web Developer is someone who is able to work on both the front-end and back-end portions of an application. Front-end generally refers to the portion of an application the user will see or interact with, and the back-end is the part of the application that handles the logic, database interactions, user authentication, server configuration, etc.”
