What makes Full Stack a viable choice?
There are certain things you need to consider before choosing full stack development services for your project, it will give you the boost in both selection and hiring procedure for your need. In a very specific manner front end, back end, database, mobile app and testing are the basics of development services in IT sector.
Choosing full stack development services from a company or a freelancer enables certain benefits and consequences in your project.
The expertise of a master full stack developers includes:
- UI/UX Design
- PSD's to Design Conversion
- Database Configuration and Coding
- APIs and Third-Party Integration
- Server and Client Side Scripting
- Excellent Programming and Logical Skills
- Mark-up Proficiency
- Maintenance & Support
Benefits of choosing full stack rather than specific technology stack:
- Full stack developer are mastered in easy switching between the front end and back end development based on the project requirement
- Specific developers is capable to look after the entire design structure at any level and work on any of them as required during project development cycle
- By hiring an expert full stack developer gives you the flexibility and enables cost cutting for your project development rather than hiring the developers from specific niche
- It makes easy for developers to take the ownership of design & implementation on the website
- Enables easy up-gradation to new technologies and tools for faster deployment rather than a developer specialising only in particular niche
- Comprehensibility of an individual Full Stack developer gives them flexibility to move from task to task according to the project need
- A full stack developer always have a complete solution to the problems, specifically they go to the root of a problem rather than focusing on easy fixes
- It is an ideal option for small & medium enterprises, as the complexity of website requirement can be broken into modules to save the time and cost
Similarly, There are certain consequences of full stack as well:
- There is a small chance of choosing the wrong solution for the project
- The solutions depends on the skill-set of the developer
- Increases the complexity of the developer
- Unknown solutions leads to key person at risk
These business benefits and consequences are pretty obvious if you hire a dedicated developer from an IT organisation. The reason is, when you hire a company they follow a standard hiring procedure, where your million dollar business idea is secured with an NDA. The organisation will itself be answerable to you for the time developers have spent and the work they have done for your project. On the other hand, hiring freelancer (Considering cheap rates) may not be a favourable decision in the long-run. There is no assurance that your project is under safe hands and a very less chance that your project will be delivered under the mentioned time-frame. So carefully choose an option that is viable, don't get attracted with lucrative low cost and unethical offers.
