About the Industry
Employment of web developers and digital designers is projected to grow 8 percent from 2019 to 2029, much faster than the average for all occupations.
There’s a significant shortage of qualified developers compared to the demand for this occupation in the Bay Area and Silicon Vally. As the line between what can be done on the front end versus back end blurs as the tech industry expands, more developers are becoming what is called “full stack.” Employers, especially in the Bay Area, are looking for developers who know how to work on all the parts of a site. The Qwasar: Full Stack Developer program at Canada College will teach students the scope of skills necessary to become a starting full stack developer
What is a Full Stack Developer?
Full-stack developers are experts in both the front-end and back-end of the components that make up a website. They possess knowledge in both front-end and back-end languages and frameworks, as well as in server, network and hosting environments.
- front-end development (the visible parts of a website or app)
- back-end development (the “under the hood” databases and infrastructure)
- full stack development (a hybrid of both). Full stack can apply to a web stack, mobile stack, or a native application stack
