A Look at Full Stack Development
When full stack development was coined in 2008 or so, there was a sharp division between front and back end developers. As web development technologies changed, the front and back end have merged in most environments. If you’re getting into development now, then you’ll be a full stack developer — even if it’s not your job title.
This week, we’ll look at the differences between front end, back end, and full stack development, how to become a full stack developer, and how to learn React on your own.
You'll find plenty of high-quality online and in-person resources to learn React. Go with free options if you don't have a deadline and don't mind meandering. If you're on a timeline or see React as a core pillar of your career, a paid boot camp is a much better option.
Based on the incredible demand for full stack developers, it doesn’t make sense to pursue a bachelor’s degree when you can prioritize experience. You can get all of the education you need through online courses, targeted boot camps, and on the job training.
In modern development environments, the front end and back end are rarely cleanly separated. Following the advancement of web development technology, full stack developers have emerged as the preferred developer for many companies. Here’s how to choose your next step.
Web development is booming. But the skills required to land these jobs have changed. Employers are now looking for devs who can do it all: front and backend. These are called full stack developers, and this boot camp covers all the technologies you’ll need to land your first web development job.
