Full stack development: It refers to the development of both front end(client side) and back end(server side) portions of web application.
Full stack web Developers: Full stack web developers have the ability to design complete web applications and websites. They work on the frontend, backend, database and debugging of web applications or websites.
Technology related to full stack development:
- It is the visible part of website or web application which is responsible for user experience. The user directly interacts with the front end portion of the web application or website.
Front end Languages:
- The front end portion is built by using some languages which are discussed below:
- HTML: HTML stands for Hyper Text Markup Language. It is used to design the front end portion of web pages using markup language. HTML is the combination of Hypertext and Markup language. Hypertext defines the link between the web pages. The markup language is used to define the text documentation within tag which defines the structure of web pages.
- CSS: Cascading Style Sheets, fondly referred to as CSS, is a simply designed language intended to simplify the process of making web pages presentable. CSS allows you to apply styles to web pages. More importantly, CSS enables you to do this independent of the HTML that makes up each web page.
- SASS: It is the most reliable, mature and robust CSS extension language. It is used to extend the functionality of an existing CSS of a site including everything from variables, inheritance, and nesting with ease.
- Some other libraries and frameworks are: Semantic-UI, Foundation, Materialize, Backbone.js, Express.js, Ember.js etc.
Other Important Points:
- Work with text editors to use shortcuts and its facilities i.e. Visual studio, Atom, Sublime etc.
- Make UI responsible using grid system.
- Git and git commands like init, add, commit etc for version control and to work with team.
- Other tools like npm & yarn package managers, sass css pre-processor, browser DevTools i.e. chrome devtools.
- Understand using HTTP, JSON, GraphQL APIs to fetch data using axios or other tools.
- It also requires some design skill to make layout and look better.
Back end: It refers to the server-side development of web application or website with a primary focus on how the website works. It is responsible for managing the database through queries and APIs by client-side commands. This type of website mainly consists of three parts front end, back end, and database.
The back end portion is built by using some libraries, frameworks, and languages which are discussed below:
- PHP: PHP is a server-side scripting language designed specifically for web development. Since, PHP code executed on server side so it is called server side scripting language.
- C++ It is a general purpose programming language and widely used now a days for competitive programming. It is also used as backend language.
- Java: Java is one of the most popular and widely used programming language and platform. It is highly scalable. Java components are easily available.
- Python: Python is a programming language that lets you work quickly and integrate systems more efficiently.
- Back End Frameworks: The list of back end frameworks are: Express, Django, Rails, Laravel, Spring etc.
- The other back end program/scripting languages are: C#, Ruby, REST, GO etc.
Other Important Points:
- Structuring the data in efficient way.
- Handle request-response of APIs for storing and retrieve data.
- Security of data is important.
Database: Database is the collection of inter-related data which helps in efficient retrieval, insertion and deletion of data from database and organizes the data in the form of tables, views, schemas, reports etc.
- Oracle: Oracle database is the collection of data which is treated as a unit. The purpose of this database is to store and retrieve information related to the query. It is a database server and used to manages information.
- MongoDB: MongoDB, the most popular NoSQL database, is an open source document-oriented database. The term ‘NoSQL’ means ‘non-relational’. It means that MongoDB isn’t based on the table-like relational database structure but provides an altogether different mechanism for storage and retrieval of data.
- Sql: Structured Query Language is a standard Database language which is used to create, maintain and retrieve the relational database.
- MEAN Stack: MongoDB, Express, AngularJS and Node.js.
- MERN Stack: MongoDB, Express, ReactJS and Node.js
- Django Stack: Django, python and MySQL as Database.
- Rails or Ruby on Rails: Uses Ruby, PHP and MySQL.
- LAMP Stack: Linux, Apache, MySQL and PHP.
