The rising demand for technology-driven solutions compels web developers to gain knowledge and understanding of both frontend and backend languages. The need for full-stack development professionals who can develop the client-side as well as the server-side of the application is in full swing. Companies across the globe are rigorously searching for professional developers who can build a complete web application right from scratch. 

According to the United States Bureau of Labor Statistics report, the demand for full-stack developers will exceed 8,53,000 by the year 2024. Companies consider full-stack app development professionals as invaluable assets for their business, due to the value that they add to the company, 

What is Full-stack Development?

Full-Stack development involves developing all the components of the application, including frontend, backend, and database portions. It often includes debugging web applications. The mobile developer takes into consideration the full development operations right from conceptualization to final product. Here, the developers deal with:

Full-stack Development Architecture

Similar to other application development processes, full-stack development also involves three layers. It includes the presentation layer, which is the frontend part associated with the user interface; the business logic layer, which is associated with data validation; and the database layer that is associated with data.

Presentation layer

The presentation layer contains components accessible to the end-user. In a web application, this layer includes JavaScript, HTML, and CSS that developers use to build the application interface and interact with the users. It is the client-side of the application that decides how the app will look like.

Business logic layer

This is the backend layer that contains components that are not visible to the users. This layer accommodates right in the middle of the presentation layer and the database layer. It is responsible for retrieving and positioning the data requested from the client and transferring it to the data layer. The entire process involves complicated operations that include authentication, authorization, business logic design, API endpoint design, etc.

Database layer

Also known as a data layer, it handles how the app developer creates, uses, reads, stores, manages, or deletes data from the database which could be on MySQL, PostgreSQL, Oracle, MongoDB or Firestore. It is when the developer writes the app's runtime data onto the hard drive of the system. The critical role of this layer is to retrieve data from the runtime of the system's processes and then store it in such a manner that it remains accessible on subsequent system restart instances.

Full-Stack Development: Languages

Full-stack development involves a good understanding of both the frontend as well as the backend languages. Knowing these languages and the functions they perform will give developers a boost in the industry. It includes multiple languages that help effectively structuring data and handling APIs request-response for efficient data storage and retrieval operations.

Full-Stack Development: Frameworks & Libraries

Due to the popularity of frontend frameworks and libraries, the count continues to increase drastically. While developing a new app or a website, choosing the right frontend framework and library can ignite the process of full-stack app development.
