These core skills should be non-negotiable in an ideal developer as they serve the basis of their performance measure -
a. Knowledge Of Programming Languages
The advantage of having full-stack developers onboard your development team is that they are
skilled in all aspects of the application – right from the core of the back end to the design
elements of the front-end.
Having a solid and intuitive understanding of both front-end and back-end paradigms is
of utmost importance to any full-stack developer.
A full-stack developer must be well-versed with back-end technologies like Node.js,
PHP, ROR, Python, and Java as well as front end web development using AngularJS,
ReactJS, Bootstrap, etc.
b. Experience With Frameworks
However, in an increasingly competitive job market like one that we see today, an in-depth
understanding of front-end and backend frameworks is important. They include -

on top of all the latest developments in databases such as MongoDB, MySQL, Oracle, MS SQL,
and PostgreSQL is important.
d. Fundamental Concepts & Norms
A full-stack developer is only as good as his understanding of fundamental concepts such as
OOPS, MVC architecture, responsive design, and schema design paradigms.
Apart from knowing high-level languages, a good full-stack developer should -
Understand how the core of the application works, which will help them get the app off
the ground as quickly as possible
Be able to write and document readable code in compliance with industry standards to
facilitate the effortless maintenance of the app.
Have experience with full-stack development before. Like with most things, practice
makes perfect and web development is no different.
Being thorough with fundamentals goes a long way not only in building the app, but also
