Wide-eyed newcomers to the exciting world of web development are taught to specialize in one of three facets of the practice: a design and frontend development language, a backend scripting language and a database technology. Having all three in your arsenal results in elevation to the coveted position of full-stack developer. Whatever your area of specialization is, and especially if you’ve gone full-stack, being able to get a website live and learning to deal with code maintenance is essential.
