What an amazing time we are living in? Inexpensive access to technology and the rise of JavaScript has created a new breed of developers i.e., Full Stack Developers can work equally well on the front-end and back-end technologies, thanks to JavaScript.

Building a SAAS product was never simple. Now you can partner up with a Full Stack Developer to bring your idea to life. There is no need to hire multiple developers & designers to make it happen. A single full stack developer can do wonders now. Web application development process with a Full Stack Developer be like:

Wireframes

Picture worth a thousand words. Wireframes serve this purpose. If you have brilliant idea in mind and nothing on paper, you will face difficulty visualizing the solution be it web app or mobile app. Wireframing will bring the developer and product owner to same page regarding the expectations of the final solution.

UI/UX Design

Once the wireframes are finalized and overall flow has been established, it's time for UI/UX design of the solution (web or mobile app). User Experience (UX) provides the maximum user satisfaction when they interact with the application. User Interface (UI) provides the best presentation and interactivity of the web or mobile app.

Frontend Development

JavaScript provides multiple libraries and frameworks for frontend development of mobile or web app. Based on the specific use-case and requirements full stack developer choose to work in ReactJS, React Native, Angular, Vue, NextJS etc. Frontend helps in finalizing the response required from backend to update frontend.

Backend Development

JavaScript provides Node.js for backend development of mobile or web app. Based on the specific use-case and requirements full stack developer choose to work in ExpressJS, NextJS etc. REST API or GraphQL can be used to serve the data required at frontend.

Testing

Unit tests and integration testing can be performed with Jest and Cypress. Each library has its own pros and cons depending upon the type of application being developed. Sometimes this can be delayed and rather release for initial set of users who can provide feedback for improvements and report the bugs if found.

Deployment

Heroku, AWS amplify, Netlify can be used as they provide free tiers for evaluation and charge you as you go. In case of mobile apps, these can be submitted to Google Play Store and Apple App Store.
