Learn about the day-to-day responsibilities, required skills, and earning potential of a .NET full stack programmer. Discover statistics surrounding employment, industry growth, average weekly hours and most common qualifications.
A .NET full stack programmer is responsible for creating, managing, and modifying both the back-end and front-end elements of an application. While the back-end aspects of a program focus on its frameworks, databases, and server management; the front-end encompasses everything the end user sees – from its user interface to its interactive functionalities.
.NET full stack programmers are thus equipped with an expansive range of coding languages, including C#, Bootstrap, HTML5, SQL Server, and ASP. NET MVC – all required to build a real-world program or application with .NET. Their varied set of skills often have them sought out by employers for their ability to handle all aspects of an application.
Employment for full stack developers is expected to grow very strongly in the next five years – with a projected 23.4% job growth, according to SEEK statistics.
