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.
