In a recent study it was found that the enterprise software development is expected to grow at about 8.3% and the cloud software products powered by the SaaS model of business are expected to grow with over 22% in 2020.
Full Stack Development
The reason a full-stack developer is highly revered is because such a resource has expertise with front-end, back-end and database and tools. Front-end development is all about the user interfaces, and overall usability of the website while back-end development is oriented towards speed, efficiency and optimization of the code. Whether you are performing website development services in-house, or are using a third party IT firm, having a full stack programmer is gold.
- Any full stack developer can toggle between front-end and back-end development in between the project as per their requirement.
- Get a holistic view of the entire design structure at any level for easier backtracking, and finding of any issue within the code.
- Get one developer to work on both aspects – save time and cost.
- Higher ownership of design & implementation on a site
Apart from full-stack, we also have the concept of stacks that are subset of JS full-stack. The concept is to provide developers the needed tools for continuing web development by hand-picking on some of the tools from the full-stack.
- MEAN Stack
- MERN Stack
- MEVN Stack
- MEEN Stack
Now let’s go elaborating these four JS stacks in detail.
The following four open-source components are part of the MERN stack.
- MongoDB: A cross-platform document database
- Express.js: A back-end web application framework
This stack enables MERN Stack Developers to create web applications using these frameworks, libraries and databases for an end-to-end web application development.
The MEVN stack makes use of the following open-source components.
These following components form the MEEN stack.
Difference between JS Stacks
Maintained by Google and backed by a huge Developer community, Angular is an open-source front-end web framework used for developing single-page applications. The reason behind its popularity is on the basis of simplicity in development. It also allows easier testing of application by providing a framework for client-side model view.
Angular consists of model-view-viewmodel (MVVM) architecture with components that are used in rich Internet applications. The most notable feature of Angular is its two-way data binding which allows breathing room for back-end templates. In fact, Angular renders templates in plain HTML.
Ember is used on many popular websites, including Apple Music Square, Inc. It is the JS framework for ambitious web developers. Ember is used by the companies like Microsoft, LinkedIn, Zendesk, Netflix, Skylight, Heroku, and Square etc.
The primary objective is to create “magic” and have full-on expertise in providing best possible solutions in terms of the time, money and scope of the overall project.
The debate between full-stack developer, MEAN Stack Developer, MERN Stack Developer, MEVN Stack Developer and MEEN Stack Developer continues. However, the decision of selecting the type of developer depends on your project scope, the type of product you are trying to develop and your budget.
