There's full stack and there's... FULL stack 😏
How is that productive to the interview process?
Pfft, you mean you like giving this to noobs.
Root828794yWhat are your other two reasons, scrub?
Wack63794yCalling myself full stack... If you don't mind sharing some, I'd like to have a go, just to see how rusty my js skills have become.
Share some, please.
mundo0350364y@monkeyboy well, if you need ti work un the "UI" a.k.a. front end, you have to know vanilla JS.
Otherwise you are not really capable.
You can't rely on libraries, compilators and what not to do this for you, you ha ve to know what those are doing too.
Of course talking about web only. You can also do front end for mobile native and other non-browser stuff.
@monkeyboy your definition of a full stack developer is drastically different form everyone else's definition of it. A Full Stack developer is commonly associated with web development. I can't think of a time in which it has not been correlated to wev development and I have been doing this for a while.
@AleCx04 Search "What is a full stack developer" with your search engine of choice. Your definition may be the one that you have encountered all or most of the time in your career (and is probably what most on this forum would agree with), but it is demonstrably not what you get as the results of the above search.
@monkeyboy I'm with @AleCx04 on this one.
Full stack dev is someone who can work across any part of the given stack.
Backend (core logic / infrastructure)
Bridge(api layers / xhr)
Servers(sysadmin / devops)
Automation (devops / QA )
Otherwise, what the hell should I change my job title too since all the above I float on top off.
Master of the stack?
Also, just to please you, my first result in google:
- front end (the visible parts of a website)
- back end (the “under the hood” databases and infrastructure)
- full stack (a hybrid of both)
@C0D4 :) The first result on my list was "What is a full stack developer?
A Full Stack Developer is a developer who is comfortable working with both back-end and front-end technologies. They have specialized knowledge in all stages of software development."
PS - The last line made me chuckle a little.
