CTO’s Sweet Spot: Love Affair of a Full Stack Developer Competing in Tough Times

This story is about the dream of full-stack developers and the turmoil they face with the never ending expectations organizations. Many IT departments are still operating with platforms that are cobbled together which may have been possible in the web 2.0 era but a new generation of space-age organizations is evolving, pushing the limits of virtually every field of software.

So now companies and their CTOs need a superhero which keeps efficiency as top priority but also help product evolution and encourages free thoughts.

 

Half-to-Full Stack Developer

During the good ol’ days, when there were not many layers between the programmer and the hardware, a single person could write a complete software program end-to-end. Life was simple! But it wasn’t so for long.

The wave of internet hit the industry and the evolving technology introduced long-distance relationships and made things complex to the extent that specialists were required, sometimes one for different tiers (e.g. front-ends, databases, application servers, etc.).

Eventually, creating anything on the World Wide Web from simple websites to next-generation SaaS services became prohibitively expensive and extremely tedious. This resulted in a heart-break due to the overhead of numerous individuals who often (mis)communicated thus amplifying the short-comings.

 

The Full-Stack Revolution

A swing of fresh air introduced new languages and frameworks like Django and Ruby on Rails that automated the layer between the website and the database. Coders shifted from the complex Java Stack to more straightforward LAMP stack.

This enabled coders to deliver a website or SaaS application end-to-end, including a dynamic web server client, server-side business applet, a scalable database algorithm implementation, field deployment, and operational support. These programmers substituted the hordes of coders who performed just one task end-to-end. Everything worked for the better and results showed efficiency and faster adaptability across the board.

For once, it felt like the mountain of organizational expectations from CTOs could be handled and we had found a way to deal with technology upgrade and skill-up our simple-hearted programmers.

 

The Full-Stack Developer’s Heartache

Alas, we were wrong. Satisfying one set of expectations only opened new horizons where the CTOs started to seek the sweet spot between all the skills needed for their business in one person. This meant that the programmers were supposed to have

  • Decision Making
  • Testing
  • Deployment
  • Network Security
  • Leadership abilities apart from their skill-set.

The love affair was in trouble once again due to dissatisfaction and discord between the parties.

But our story cannot end like this, and we have just the person you need: a relationship counsellor! ❤

CTOs and developers both need that one person who can successfully integrate composite parts of the problem statement at various levels of the application i.e., level-connecting, bridge-building software creator.

And here is the solution the relationship counsellor has to offer: Simulators! The CTO needs

  • Developers who understand where programming languages are going and how to react, learn and utilise them effectively.
  • Leaders who align business objectives and help developer teams implement what they envisage.
  • Integrate workforce so that now developers can prioritise design, product, business strategy, etc
