Full Stack Web Development

From EverybodyWiki Bios & Wiki

Full stack web development is the practice of working on both the front-end and back-end of a program. It is a term mostly used for those working in web development. The developers have background on creating user interface and user experience for front-end, and also have strong knowledge in a programming language that is used for handling the logic of the application, hence back-end.[1]

Full Stack is a layer of software or web development consisting of the front-end and the back-end portions of an application. Front-end is what the users will see or interact with on your application. Back-end part is what users do not see, such as application's logic, database, server, etc. A full-stack web developer is comfortable working with both back-end and front-end technologies which make a website or application function properly.[2]


Full stack developers are known to be "Jack of all trades" in the programming industry.[3]

  • Adaptability and Flexibility - Full stack developers can easily be put to work on either front-end or back-end tasks.
  • Good chance of being employed - Knowing full stack development may give you an edge in the industry since you can fulfill more than one role.
  • Entire Design Structure - Full stack developers can look at the entire design structure and logic, and have a better view of a program or application. This way, issues may be prevented during the development.[4]
  • Cost saving and ideal for smaller scale enterprise - Full stack development is ideal for small scale projects and small businesses since they can just hire a developer who can do both front-end and back-end programming.[4]


During 1970's, programming and development was not multi-layered yet so there was really no need for full stack developers. Developers can write complete programs that don't really have the user interfaces that we are used to now. [3]

Around 1990-2000's, full stack development was synonymous with web development. This was due to user interfaces being very simple and easy to make, so developers work on both front and back-end tasks.[5]

Nowadays, most companies hire different developers that specializes in front-end and back-end, which also separates the tasks for user interface and logic.[6]
