What is a Full Stack developer?

Is it reasonable to expect mere mortals to have mastery over every facet of the development stack? Probably not, but Facebook can ask for it. I was told at OSCON by a Facebook employee that they only hire ‘Full Stack’ developers. Well, what does that mean?

  1. Hang on a sec, I’ll go to GitHub and create an OpenStack distro called FullStack… and backdate some commits so I can show “5+ years experience”…

  2. Boo, github.com/desiato is taken. Though appropriately he mostly seems to be spending time dead…

  3. hmmm… here I thought I’d post something that you can use to measure yourself, and you turn it into something you can use for a job interview…

  4. All wrong – it refers to pancakes topped with raspberries and tons of whipped cream. Farcebook wants developers that can make and eat those constantly so they too huge to leave their chairs. Productivity thing really. Wait, it is an U.S. company, so they should have no shortage finding overdeveloped developers. Now this is something that is measurable John! (Oink Oink)

  5. Ha! Dead for tax purposes, Hotblack?

  6. Perhaps they mean Stack Overflow? (That would be the maple syrup Mykolas.)
