“A Guide to Becoming a Full-Stack Developer in 2017”

Being a Full-Stack Developer doesn’t mean that you have necessarily mastered everything required to work with the front-end or back-end, but it means that you are able to work on both sides and understand what is going on when building an application.

Full-Stack Web Development, according to the Stack Overflow 2016 Developer Survey, is the most popular developer occupation today. It’s no wonder then that there are dozens of online and in-person programs that will help people become Full-Stack Developers and then even assist these new developers land high-paying programming jobs.

Some popular online programs can be found on Lynda, Udacity, Coursera, Thinkful, General Assembly, and so much more. Aside from these online programs, there are also in-person coding bootcamps that are teaching people the skills required to become web developers.

In this article I won’t be discussing which websites or coding bootcamps have the best web development programs, instead I will be providing a definitive guide to what I believe are the most important skills required to become a Full-Stack Web Developer today and land a job if you’ve never coded before. I will be basing the list off of three things:

  1. A combination of what most programs in 2017 are teaching students.
  2. My own personal experiences from interviewing at companies for developer positions in the past and also interviewing potential candidates for current Full-Stack Developer positions at my current company.
  3. Stories and feedback from people on Coderbyte who have been accepted to coding bootcamps and then proceeded to get programming jobs (see below).

React continues to dominate the front-end landscape

“React continues to dominate the front-end landscape, and 2017 provided one of the most anticipated releases yet with version 16. It includes the fiber architecture which enables asynchronous UI rendering. This release also makes it much easier to manage unexpected application failures by providing error boundaries along with many other features.”

Sigmajs Exporter – Gephi Marketplace

Very interesting program for visualization networks in 3d.

Export your network from Gephi to a predefined Sigma.js template. Choose to include search, group selection, explanatory text, etc. without having to do any HTML/JavaScript coding. Upload the output to any webserver and enjoy a rich HTML5 interactive visualization of your network.

Example output is available at: http://blogs.oii.ox.ac.uk/vis/?page_id=115 More features are coming and better validation is needed, but I’m making this alpha version of the code available quickly because of the demand I’ve received for it. More information on the project is available on our blog. The underlying HTML5/CSS/JS framework used to render the graphs is also available on GitHub as a separate project and changes / pull requests are welcome.

Once installed, restart Gephi and you will see a Export to sigma.js option on the File->Export menu. Choose a location to export to, set export customization options, and click OK. The resulting folder can be uploaded to any webserver to showcase your network. Please note, due to browser security restrictions in Chrome you will not be able to view the result without a webserver (Other browsers may work locally).

Please report any issues or feature requests on the GitHub page.


Show hide jQuery and DIV

I had to problem. A lot information to show on one web page and I have to read it all on one page. The best solution I came up with was to make a hiding to text blocks. So i try write short jQuery program according discussion at http://stackoverflow.com/questions/6967081/show-hide-multiple-divs-with-jquery i rewrite one of these solution it to my purposes.


<div class="buttons">
<a id="showall">Show All</a><br />
<a id="hideall">Hide All</a><br />
<a class="showSingle" target="1">show Div1</a> <a class="hideSingle" target="1">hide Div1</a><br />
<a class="showSingle" target="2">show Div2</a> <a class="hideSingle" target="2">hide Div2</a><br />
<a class="showSingle" target="3">show Div3</a> <a class="hideSingle" target="3">hide Div3</a><br />
<a class="showSingle" target="4">show Div4</a> <a class="hideSingle" target="4">hide Div4</a><br />
<div id="div1" class="targetDiv">1. Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet, consectetur adipiscing elit, sed do eiusmod tempor incididunt ut labore et dolore magna aliqua.</div>
<div id="div2" class="targetDiv">2. Ut enim ad minim veniam, quis nostrud exercitation ullamco laboris nisi ut aliquip ex ea commodo consequat.</div>
<div id="div3" class="targetDiv">3. Duis aute irure dolor in reprehenderit in voluptate velit esse cillum dolore eu fugiat nulla pariatur.</div>
<div id="div4" class="targetDiv">4. Excepteur sint occaecat cupidatat non proident, sunt in culpa qui officia deserunt mollit anim id est laborum.</div>


jQuery(function () {
jQuery('#showall').click(function () {
jQuery('#hideall').click(function () {
jQuery('.showSingle').click(function () {
// jQuery('.targetDiv').hide();
jQuery('#div' + jQuery(this).attr('target')).show();
jQuery('.hideSingle').click(function () {
jQuery('#div' + jQuery(this).attr('target')).hide();
