Full stack developers Vs Specialised Developers. Which developer should you hire?

The rapid changes in the IT world are raising the bar of standards and skills. Today, a developer needs to be much more than just a specialist of a particular field. Full stack developers are the product of this demand and are quickly becoming a first choice for many enterprises.

But, is it always wise to hire a jack of all trades than a specialist one?

Many of you might have the same question. In this article we will try to offer some reasonable answers to it. But before that let’s understand what full stack and specialist developers are.

What is a full-stack developer?

A full-stack developer is a developer who can work with both backend and front end of a website and application. In simple terms, a full-stack developer is a developer who can work in the projects that involve building user-facing websites, databases, and also work with clients while they are in the planning phase of the project.

Full-stack programmer is a developer who is well-versed and experienced in numerous areas like:

  • Frontend development (Vue.js, Angular, Node.js, React)
  • Backend development (PHP, Java, NET)
  • UI/UX design
  • Markup languages (HTML and CSS)
  • Databases (Firebase, MongoDB, PosterSQL, MySQL)
  • Software testing (TestComplete, Katalon studio, Postman, Selenium, etc)
  • Scalability, architecture, and the roadmap of the project.

Contrary to many people’s belief, a full-stack software engineer doesn’t necessarily writes all the codes of a site by himself. Many a times he spends his majority of time either in the backend or the front end code of a site.

Moreover, writing code is only a small portion of a full stack developer’s work. It’s because today there are many customizable, frameworks, tools, and libraries available that a developer can implement instead of writing the code himself.

This is the reason why having a competent knowledge of implementing frontend and backend tools and framework makes the full-stack developer an attractive prospect for the enterprises hiring developers.
