Hi guys, I am a front-end developer at HOOT360. Most of us made resolutions at the start of 2019. So had I. No, it isn’t weight loss. I was planning that but I am prioritizing my career development. I want to become a full stack developer. Because not being able to understand the role of backend developer restricts me to work on my concepts with 100% freedom. However, one month has passed and without a proper plan and direction, my resolution will fade. That is why I made a list of all the languages and tools I need to learn. If becoming a full stack developer this year is your goal too, let’s make it happen together.
The best way to begin your full stack developer career with is by getting very good at HTML & CSS which is the basis for everything else. HTML is Hypertext Markup Language. The latest version of HTML is 5. This language consists of multiple different tags that tell the browser what to be shown on a web page. After learning HTML, we should move towards CSS i.e. Cascading Style Sheets. CSS is nothing but a simple way of adding styling to your websites (e.g. adding fonts, colours, layout, etc).course recommended- HTML
Angular is a framework which is used for creating a 1-pager client-side application. The latest version is 7, released in November 2018. The framework combines declarative templates, end-to-end tooling, and is integrated with best practices to solve development challenges.
Many companies are looking for developers with experience of Angular. So learning Angular is crucial for web developers in 2019.course recommended- Angular
Additionally, version 2.0 of Create React App has been released and is now supporting Babel 7 and Sass out-of-the-box. If you want to build a more powerful application using React, you should try for React Redux. Redux has central state management of the application which makes data handling easy across components.course recommended- React
PHP has been in the market for a long time and it is widely used even today. Facebook, for instance, had its substantial backend developed using PHP in initial days. Besides, PHP supports all of the leading databases including MySQL, ODBC and SQLite. This is the main advantage of using PHP for web development. While other programming languages might require long scripts, PHP can do that same work in a few lines of code. It gives you maximum control over the websites. Likewise, whenever you want to make changes, you can edit easily without changing the entire code.course recommended- PHP
Django is the Web Framework of Python with the model-view-template architectural pattern and includes batteries. It has everything needed to build a Robust Framework. Main features or batteries are:
Django can be (and has been) used to build almost any type of website — from content management systems and wikis through to social networks and news sites. It can work with any client-side framework and can embed content in most formats including HTML, RSS feeds, JSON, XML, etc.course recommended- Django
These are some basic frameworks and languages we need to learn but web development is incomplete without Git. Git is a software that is used for Version Control. It is free and open source. Now, let’s understand what is Version Control. Version Control is the management of changes to documents, computer programs, large websites and other collection of information.
If you are working as a developer, you will sooner or later learn about Git and GitHub. As a version control system, Git is widely accepted by most companies and most of the frameworks and extensions presented in this article are also hosted on GitHub.course recommended- Git
I feel this will be the best way to move towards becoming a full stack developer.
