Moving from .NET development to full stack development

You don’t need to be an expert in front and back end development, but if you can combine the best of both worlds, this could be the right move for you. To help you prepare, we’ve put together a list of the skills that could help you secure a full stack development role.

Stack it up – skills to excel as a full stack developer

C# - As a .NET developer you may already be a C# expert. If not, this is a great place to start expanding your knowledge.


HTML - Easy to learn, powerful to use. HTML is used to create web pages with tags to create page content on a website.


CSS - The beautifier of HTML; where styling is concerned, CSS is the tool you need.


Bootstrap - Combining HTML and CSS to design templates, this is the framework that’s used for designing a website or page.


JavaScript – JavaScript deals with interactivity on webpages; from interactive maps, images and more, JavaScript is the language to speak.


jQuery – It’s fast, and simplifies HTML. It’s not a language but a code; jQuery is a JavaScript library and provides an easy way to use JavaScript on websites.


Angularjs - Making JavaScript writing simpler, Angular is often used next to jQuery.


AJAX - If you want to update webpages asynchronously, AJAX is your hero.


Embeder - For the more complex web applications you need Embeder. It’s a collection of various pieces that help you to develop a Single Page Application, known as SPA.

Database - Depending on the company or situation, you’ll know how to choose; study NoSQL databases.
