Full stack developers are the minds behind interactive web apps. A full stack developer is a web developer or software engineer who is able to work in front-end dev, back-end dev, databases, DevOps, and mobile app dev. While certifications are always a great way to boost your resume, they are not required in this field. Being able to show potential employers your experience working in a full stack capacity using the portfolio of projects you build in this course is what you really need to land a great job. 

“Recruiters want to see your code,” said full stack developer student Mark M. “The course really helps show what type of developer you are.”

In addition to the 21% job growth forecasted by the BLS, Indeed.com recently showed “full stack developer” ranked in the number 2 position of jobs based on its growth potential and salary opportunity. Not only that, but this position commands one of the highest average annual salaries in information technology.

By the time you complete your course, you'll have the skills needed for many different web and app development roles, including front-end developer, back-end developer, systems architect, and of course, as a full stack web developer.
