Do you remember your early days at job? You had a dream to become a very good developer; perhaps you wanted to go full stack, right? Now that you have gained years of experience, did you realize your dream or it just felt like a myth?
Web development is a relatively easy task these days but becoming a full stack developer is not everyone’s cup of tea, indeed. Being a full stack developer demands the knowledge of all the front-end as well as back-end technologies. It requires you to know all the programming languages or at least the most used ones. It seems to be a very challenging job if not impossible, isn’t it?
Here are some tips to help you get your hands on full stack development:
Identify your niche
First of all, you have to find out the needs of your target so that you have a clear idea where you want to be in near future. Even though, full stack gives the notion that you should know everything; you need to know where your destination is and how to create paths to reach there.
Zoom in on around your focus
Once you have your focus in place, you need to zoom in on the technologies your stack will need. This is because, learning all the technologies is nearly impossible. Therefore, you would need to focus on learning few of the important technologies.
Clear your fundamentals
If your fundamentals are clear then everything else will become easy. HTML, CSS and web development are the base of web development, so strengthening your knowledge on these would be helpful. Before you move up your stack, your knowledge about programming languages, databases, data structures, algorithm, networks, hosting environment, and servers must be absolutely clear.
Jack of all, master of one
Stay up to date
It is of utmost importance to stay up to date in order to stay relevant in the market. A great way is to join a community in social media platforms, online forums like Github, or chat rooms.
The path to full stack development demands a lot of patience and perseverance. What is your approach to full stack development? Which is your niche technology? Please let us know by leaving your comments.
