Brolls32345yAnd a term that enterprise customers that can and should know better abuse to no end to squeeze every last bit of soul and money out of their workforce.
“What do you mean you can’t harvest the stone, shape it, build and decorate the temple? Specialisation, what’s that?!”
Imagine the attitude applied to other division of labour tasks, goodness knows why it’s applied to software.
What I object to about the use of the term is that it refers to a person with deep, comprehensive knowledge and expertise on the full infrastructure, design, development, deployment, and support lifecycle. This term was coined to refer to people who could, with their knowledge, do the work of multiple people, for less than the cost of however many people, but for a far greater level of compensation than one person.
What I object to today is the dilution of this term by it being accepted to refer to narrow, field-specific segments of that extremely broad set of highly valuable skills. This dilution means there is no word to refer to, "Full Stack" anymore.
unmarked5625yI'm full stack in a very large Enterprise and I feel like it's an appropriate term for what I do...lol
Really I prefer back end though
w00000t855yI'm also a full stack developer doing contract work and it's always fun to learn new technologies. When a client asks for something I don't know but I'm interested in, I'll offer to learn it. Over the years this leads to a huge repertoire... (Python, PHP, Java, MySQL, Postgres, Redis, RabbitMQ, Cassandra, React + ecosystem and es6+, React Native, Cordova, lots of libraries, DevOps Stuff like Jenkins, Docker, Icinga), currently diving into Kubernetes. I would be happy to learn more things about best practice in QA and about machine learning soon.
