Hiring Full-stack Developers in Belarus

What is a full-stack developer?

Full-stack developers are experts in both the front (interface) and back ends. As such, they own the full stack of technologies that make up a website. They are proficient in the relevant languages and frameworks, as well as server, network, and hosting environments. To achieve this breadth and depth of knowledge, most full-stack developers have spent many years working in a wide variety of roles. They also tend to be well versed in both business logic and user experience, which means that they are not only well trained but can also guide and advise on strategy.

Many employers (especially agencies working with different types of sites) are looking for developers who know how to work on all parts of the site so that they can use the best tools for the job regardless of whether it is technically “front-end” or “back-end”. Consequently, responsibility implies a complete set of development tools.

What a full-stack developer should know and be able to do

A full-stack developer doesn’t write all the code for a website, as many might think.  They spend most of their time either in the external or internal code of the site.

A full-stack developer is a hybrid of the front-end and back-end developer roles. They contribute to all aspects of the web development process, from creating communication methods to programming server-side functions. All full-stack developers are well versed in client-side languages ​​(HTML, CSS, and JavaScript) and at least one server-side programming language.

Such developers are not experts in every web technology – there are simply too many of them. Instead, they tend to focus on one particular type of shared stack. Examples of such technologies: HTML, CSS, JavaScript.

Ideally, one or more third-party libraries, such as ReactJS or Angular.js.

Programming languages and libraries, such as Ruby on Rails, PHP, and Python. As well as experience with databases, version control, knowledge of security issues and best practices. Some knowledge of web or visual design and best user experience practices will be a huge plus.
