I'm not a huge fan of the whole full stack de­vel­oper non-sense, but I am start­ing to see why it's in de­mand. For most things, you need a work­ing knowl­edge of both.

Serverless of course closes the gap from the back-end fur­ther for us front-end de­vel­op­ers. Exciting time to be wit­ness­ing this shift!

Perhaps what we do need to do is dis­pel the no­tion that a full-stack dev is great at both the front-end and the back-end. A healthy way to look at it would be to think of a full stack dev as un­der­stands one, mas­ters other.

Both sub­jects have such a wide berth of knowl­edge. You're go­ing to take time to truly get to a point where you're mak­ing good, long-term de­ci­sions on both sides of the half.
