Gone are the days when there were Just HTML developers, CSS Developers, JavaScript Developers, and Backend Developers. JavaScript developers didn't have to learn CSS or backend technology. They were happy with their work. But time has changed. Now If you're a JavaScript developer, you need to know all of them(HTML, CSS, and also backend coding). Because there are very few job opportunities for Just HTML or Just CSS or Just JavaScript developers.

Now is the era of Full Stack Developers. Most of the companies are looking for developers who know how to design front-end, backend, and also HTML and CSS.

If you're a React/Angular Developer, that's not enough nowadays. You need to learn Node.js also which means you need to know how to design front-end and backend also.

So in this article, I have listed out some of the articles which will help you to become a full-stack developer and gain knowledge of front-end as well as backend.

markdown guide

Hey, I have a question. Suppose I have an idea for a product I want to build. What should I do before I start coding. The thought processes of converting the ideas to detailed designs that can be implemented in code.


I would recommend building a basic project before trying to build your dream project. If you haven't made a to-do list app example, your ideas may not be realistic to what the framework is actually able to do.

The steps would be:

  • define how a to-do list app should work
  • find a guide (searching 'to do list app [react/iphone/android/javascript]' will get you a guide for the framework you want to use)
  • build your version
  • try adding a feature

a to-do list app, with a guide, should take just 1-3 days to go from concept to finished project, and it will save you weeks of time.


Really true. Nice detailed steps. I would also recommend to start with something small and then move on to building the project idea.


Thanks. I think I'm going to do the to-do list and learn from from there.


I wrote an article about that a long time ago. The technique is probably not for everyone, but maybe it'll help you.


On my personal backlog is making a zoom clone with peer.js.


that's awesome 👍👍


I want to become a full stack developer. How long does it take to become one?


It depends on how much knowledge you already have regarding front-end and backend development. To become a full stack developer, you need to be good at HTML, CSS, JavaScript, React/Angular/Vue, etc and some backend technology for example Node.js. You need to be good at all of these to develop a project to become a full stack developer.


Great content.
Thanks for sharing.


Glad to hear that. Thank you!


Found this article Very useful.thanks


Try some udemy courses too. Ultimately what you've built, even if you're a commercial Dev is likely to be limited, and it's a lot of fun making things


😀 Thanks for the suggestion. Maybe in the future, I will do that.
