I honestly don't know why anyone would want to be a fullstack dev. I worked for multiple unicorns, I worked for start ups where there was an abundance of work to be done. In both cases full stack devs are always pushed to play with the mediocre, boring parts of both worlds. "oh here you go, set up this api while we experiment with all the cool stuff in the backend". And in both cases fullstacks were paid less because they don't need to have as much critical thinking skills as all in backend. I certainly agree that every dev should have full stack skills, it really helps when you are experimenting with stuff, or simply building your own company. Being able to bootstrap your product is a huge plus. I wouldn't do it with any of the languages mentioned here but yeah :) and don't get me wrong, I am not saying as developers they are inferior or anything. I just would never apply to a fullstack position because of the scope of their duties

If you focus on one point in the stack, you can pivot more easily. Swapping from dotnet core to spring boot for backend is way easier than swapping languages and frameworks for both your api and UI.

You're absolutely correct, sticking to a stack and become the best is better.

Yeah I think focus should be on one language at both stacks. It's a better decision in the long run.
