Typecast as a frontend or backend or full stack web developer
The opposite of a frontend developer is a backend developer, who’s skills focus around server based processes, core computational logic and features that are indirectly accessed by users through a frontend application.
Backend and full stack developers often have knowledge of data storage engines such as MYSQL, MongoDB and other SQL/NoSQL databases
If I had to label myself I would use the term ‘full stack developer’.
However there is more to just this label.
In today’s live stream I’m going to answer a question that was asked last week about feeling pressured to learn different languages and if I have any regret in choosing the web development disciplines that I know.
I’m also going to talk about the impact upon recuritment when using these labels to define who we are as developers.

Questions and comments welcome during the stream. I will try to get to the questions at the end of the stream.
