Hi. What’s up?
Just imagine that I’m writing this from a crusty room in Obalende. I’m looking at my laptop screen and wondering for the 50th time, why we’re not doing another newsletter on something other than developers yet. Like an interview about crazy workplace experiences or something😭
Imagine that after this brief reflection, I open Spotify and let the lyrics of Frank Sinatra in ‘My Way’ comfort me when he says:
“And now, the time is near and so we face the final curtain”
Because on that note, ladies and gentlemen, I can say that we’re wrapping up the sessions about developers. Yass!🥳
The Real Beginning of the Newsletter
So, we’ve had a good run. Last week, we talked a bit about databases for full stackers. Now, we’re going to be talking about the different stacks.
Don’t get it twisted, there’s the stack in full-stack that means you’re a frontend and backend developer, there’s also a stack that describes the set of languages you speak, frameworks you’re fluent in and the libraries you use on a particular project.
In fact, you can be like those Yoruba people who order swallow with a mix of egusi, ila and efo riro together. 🌚 This means that you could actually mix different languages, frameworks or tools together, in the same project.
I need to mention that your choice of the stack when building anything will affect how your app works, its scalability, your server systems etc.
There are different types of stacks, but we’ll just talk about a few, popular stack models: MERN, LAMP, MEAN, MEVN, Flutter and Serverless stacks.
