About This Course
The rise of the full stack developer did not arise by accident. Full stack developers are needed to give these firms the agility and skill sets they require as they move toward digital, where technology is fully integrated into the rest of the organization rather than being housed in an IT department. As a result, a full stack developer must be a specialized generalist who can handle a variety of jobs and collaborate with people from other disciplines. The Web has evolved into a natural development platform for applications. The Web has evolved from its basic beginnings as a means of reading documents to allowing you to offer increasingly complex apps to a variety of devices, thanks to an explosion in tools and browser technology that shows no signs of slowing down. Understanding the history of the Web can help you choose the correct tools for complicated and rich applications known as web apps, which may differ from content-driven web sites with various interaction patterns.
Rise of the Web
The popularity of the Internet has never been higher. It’s difficult to keep up with the constant emergence of new frameworks, better tooling, and the change of standards. The modern Web is continually evolving, with more devices than ever being able to access and interact with it, and techniques to handle this are also evolving. Instead of having the page look the same on every device, media queries in CSS allowed web page styling to target displays with unique features. This simple shift dramatically altered the way websites were built, resulting in the development of a brand-new set of methodologies known as Responsive Web Design, in which the design of a single web page should take into account the capabilities of the device on which it is being rendered. However, CSS currently lacks some of the capabilities required for successful responsive web design—the only data we can rely on is screen size and pixel density, although there are many additional factors that would influence design if they were accessible, such as interaction methods (mouse, touch-screen, speech, five-point remote control, etc.) As a result, the Web remains a restricted medium. Despite these limitations, the Web’s distribution mechanism has mostly replaced the traditional desktop application.
