Full Stack: The myth & the bullshit


My plan is to write this post in the open, in the meantime these are my current thoughts on the subject.


  • FE is a spectrum
    • UX <—-> HTML/CSS <—-> JS/Engineering
  • Everyone has forgotten about standards
  • More than just HTML
    • What about accessibility?
    • Performance anyone?
    • Cross browser testing
    • Devices! Devices! Devices!
    • Sass, CSS & pattern libraries
    • Build tools
    • Linting
  • It’s no longer about converting a design to a template, we’ve got more intelligent in our approach, the bredth of FE has grown massively
  • So, let me ask you, are you really fullstack?
