we are going to see what is the meaning of full stack development we are going to look at the advantages of becoming a full stack developer.
we are going to check two example I am going to take two examples of a full stack developer what does a full stack developer know and then finally I am going to discuss the difference in salaries between a full stack developer and a software developer so if you are interested to become a full stack developer if you are interested in getting the highest paying jobs in software then watch this article till the end becauseI can guarantee to you that showing it properly on your resume will suddenly change your salary by 2 times to 4 times even though full stack developer has become very common term today there was a time when I started software development we got our first software project and we were just two engineer so when we got the software project.
we were writing code for the frontend so we wrote whatever code was required for the user interface of the software and then we wrote the backend code which was the business process or the code which was connecting the front in application with the database and we also designed the database what we were doing back then what actually full stack development today the industries using this term as full stack development but in 1997 if you are visual basic programmer or if you are a programmer inJava then you were already doing full stack development but at that point of time we hired one software engineer because our company was growing he was a fresher and we showed him everything we showed him how to do front end development we showed him how to do back and development we shouldn’t have to work with database after 1 year this Engineer left our company joined a big software development company.
we were just three or four people at that point of time when he joined the company which had 3000 to 4000 employees within that company after he joined that company came back to meet us after three or four month and at that time he told us that he has become kind of the super coder in his company because he knows everything he knows how to write frontend code he knows how to write back in code he knows how to work with database as well as he knows how to build application deployed application he knows end to end software development so his value in this new company immediately went up compared to other engineers in his company so full stack development is nothing but knowing how to write a front and code.
how to design a database within mongo DB and how to connect this database using your node JS Express JS with the frontend that your design with react that is what will make you a full stack web developer with react similarly if you are a full stack web developer with Django Django is a Framework which has been written using a python programming language again Django is a set of library which has both front and cold as well as backend code Idea behind Django is that it is very quick to deliver a software using the Django framework and when you work with Django Framework usingDjango within the for front end Technologies for using the Django Framework for the server-side coding as well as on the database side Idea using my SQL using SQL light or mongo DB whateverDjango can work with these are the two different examples of a full stack developer using either react or Django there are many different software stack and I will list some of the software stack in the description of this article.
so that you can know what are the different software stack under which you can become a full stack web developer know what are the advantages of becoming a full stack web developer why are a lot of new companies and some of the best software companies and product companies focusing on the title of full stack developer for full stack web developer the first advantages of both client side programming and server side programming which means that you just need one software engineer to handle both sides of coding which makes it easy for software development project advantage is that these programmer in create a prototype rapidly which is a need for most of the software product companies and even services company third is if you are a full stack developer then you can also help other team members who are not full stack developer if there is somebody who is working on the front inside their stuck with some code they are facing a bug because you are a full stack developer.
you can easily pinpoint the bug and explain it to the frontend developer or the backend developer as required 4th and the biggest advantage is that a full stack developer reduces the cost of the project amount of interaction required for a big project or a complex project is very high so for companies this is a very important thing which reduces the cost of the project that is the reason they are giving higher salary and similar to the forth point V. Is that it reduces time every explain that is the reason the cost comes down where there is more communication it’s like too many cooks spoil the broth it is same in software development is there are too many different people working on the same project then it becomes difficult to communicate and deliver any application on time.
So it drastically reduces the time required for development vi. And the best point about the software developer is that this software developers the full stack developers can switch between front end development and backend development as per requirement it may happen that your hard as a full stack developer but you are working only on backend code or you are hired a full stack developer and you are mostly working on the frontend side but when there isa need and there is a requirement to switch from front end to back end a full stack developer can do it easily and this is a advantage for the company and finally VII advantage fora full stack developer is that they can adopt to new technology really fast like nowadays there are new technologies which are coming out in using artificial intelligence or machine learning or using Robotics using automation or using let’s say capacity of drones or internet of things all this new technology they required someone a software developer who can understand multiple different ways of using that technology and that of full stack developer can do better because his worked in all areas of software development rights from frontend to backend to deployment to database and everything.
so these are the seven major advantages of becoming a full stack developer because of which companies are ready to pay a very high salary to full stack developer in the beginning of this article I told you that I did some research on the kind of job as a full stack developer in India your salary can start with double than average salary ok average salary of a software developer in India is 3.2 lacs per annum to 3.5 lacs per annum but as a full stack developer you can get anywhere between 6 lacs per annum to 7 lakhs per annum as a beginner as a fresher in the software industry and with some experience3 to 4 years of experience as a full stack developer you can demand a salary upto 21lacs or even 25 lacs per annum this is as per the research which is mentioned on glass to pay scale and various other website but I have seen software developers with a good experience and full stack development experience who get salary even higher than 25 lacs per annum where as if you are a software developer even after 5 to 6 years of experience the maximum your salary can go is up to 11 lacs per annum if your independent software engineer so that is the difference between a salary of software engineer versus of full stack developer how much you are interested in stack development.
