According to CodingTheSmartWay.com. :Becoming a fullstack web developer requires you to cover a lot of skills. For beginners it’s often not easy to find the right learning path and to gain quick result. At first sight it might be overwhelming to understand what you need to learn and how everything fits together at the end.
The best way to become a full stack Python developer is to
- Make a plan of action by listing all front-end languages you know and want to master.
- Do a ‘learn full stack development course’ from reputed training partners like Imarticus or others. These may be in the classroom, virtual online or fast-tracked interactive courses.
- Learn a web framework like Django and the best practices for queries.
- Become proficient in data processing, servers, deployment of applications, and OSs.
What you learn.
Doing a course has many benefits. Importantly the course curriculum covers the following topics.
- Use Full-Stack Django 1.11 to create a functional comprehensive website.
- Use HTML for content and CSS to style websites.
- Use Bootstrap in the rapid styling of websites.
- Use jQuery with DOM, analyze HTTP requests and create landing pages.
- Use Python to code web applications and Django as a back-end for the sites.
- Deploy and implement a structure with Models-Views-Templates.
By learning one software technology needed for every stack-part, you will be in a position to build your own software and use it to add business value in your job. It is always best to do a course since you get hands-on experience writing software and the workshop covers the in-demand stack languages. Hone your techniques, tools, documentation, and error-message capabilities at the course.
Here is another path one can follow:
- Learn basics of Python from any book or online source.
- Write some basic command line programs using Python. This will help you later in automating things as a full stack developer.
- Learn a web framework like Django or Flask. Both are powered by Python.
- (Optional) Learn bootstrap if you are not very good with basic HTML and CSS.
- Learn Git for code management.
- Learn Heroku so as to deploy your Django apps onto the internet. There are obviously others like AWS, Google cloud and all but I’ve found Heroku to be the easiest to start with.
If you’re learning Python for web development you should then take a look at Python web programming frameworks like Django or Flask.

React 16 has been released in September 2017. Many more improvements have been added with version 16.3.0 (new lifecycle and context API), 16.4.0 (pointer events) and 16.6.0 (lazy, memo, etc) in 2018.

There are many options you can choose from when selecting a back-end framework for your web project. However, in the following I’ll narrow it down to two options, one for the JS world (Node.js) and one for the Python world (Django).
As the name suggest, back-end frameworks are running on the back-end (on the server) and are generating HTML, JSON (etc.) for your website in a dynamic way depending on the URL your user visits.
If you’re only developing on the front-end side of a project it’s not needed to add a back-end framework to your skill-set. However, to gain a profound understanding of how everything is fitting together you should at least consider to understand the very basics of a back-end framework.
