A full stack developer is a programmer skilled in coding both the frontend and the backend parts of a web application by the use of different technologies.
The frontend: This is the part of the web application that the user sees and uses.
The backend: These are parts of the application that function behind the scenes and execute the commands issued by the user which usually includes:
- logical processes
- database-related processes
- validation of users
- server configuration
A full stack developer is not expected to be an expert in all areas pertaining to the frontends and backbends. The individual needs to be knowledgeable in all the technologies involved and should be able to understand the processes happening within the entire application.
