Full Stack Development is more than a job title at today's hottest tech companies, it is also a philosophy of managing technology. Full stack development means understanding each technology in the context of every layer of the stack. How well does Node work with MongoDB? What hardware / server configuration will help us scale a Ruby on Rails app? Are our engineers designing the data model and business logic with a clear concept of the customer use cases in mind?
Full Stack Development means that more engineers must know the role of his technology and layer within the context of the total technology stack - from server and database to design and user interface. In a sense, this means no developer or company should ever feel locked into any one technology - as long as your Full Stack is built right!
