If we talk about web development then it's a very practical skill. Web development can be learned both for passion as well as a career option. It's a great technical skill to showcase your talent by building creative and responsive websites.

If someone is very passionate about learning web development there are many options, there are several good courses available on youtube that can be used. It's not at all necessary to buy a course for learning but if you are a complete beginner in the field of programming then a mentor is required. In this blog, you will find a complete full-stack web development roadmap for 2023. It is the go-to guide for organizing and selecting technologies to learn.

This blog helps both beginners as well as professional coders looking for becoming full-stack web developers. Feel free to customize this roadmap to suit your needs.

There are front-end developers, and back-end developers and those developers who have a skill in both frontend and backend are full stack developers. It's completely a personal choice which one would you like to choose, in both frontend and backend there is a great scope in the IT sector.

Front-end technology roadmap for full-stack web development

Here we have listed some tools that would be required for becoming a full-stack developer.


HTML - Hypertext markup language is used for building the basic structure of a website. It is the base of web development and very simple to learn.

CSS - Cascading style sheet is used for styling websites. CSS helps in making a website attractive by adding layouts, fonts and colours.

JAVASCRIPT - Javascript is the world's most popular programming language. JavaScript is the programming language of the Web. It helps in adding dynamic features to your website. This is used for both front-end and back-end operations.

There is a very famous website that can be used for learning CSS i.e. Learn CSS. When we talk about CSS many beginners perform the common mistake of mastering CSS in the beginning but it is not all needed a Lil bit of CSS is enough initially and by practising, knowledge of CSS automatically gets better. If someone is a beginner and does not have knowledge of java then it will take time for learning javascript. Many beginners make mistakes in learning node js or react js before javascript, it's very important to learn things one by one.

After learning, frontend one should try to make some projects which include clones(ex-facebook, Instagram any website) and this is the time when one should explore bootstrap, with the help of bootstrap the designing part of the website will become easier for you. Bootstrap is an open-source toolkit for developing responsive, mobile-first projects. It has design templates for forms, buttons, tables, navigation etc., and also supports JavaScript plugins. One should invest at least 1.5 to 2 month time for learning frontend web development.

For reference, you can check out this link for some front-end projects.

Back-end technology roadmap for full-stack web development

Back-end technology is responsible for the appropriate functioning of the website. Without superior backend technologies, web and mobile applications won't be scalable or functional. Many beginner developers have a perception that the backend is very difficult but it's not true it's just that much practice is needed in this and there is a high demand for backend developers in IT sectors. A lot of options are available for back-end frameworks.

NodeJS - Javascript that we have learnt for making front-end websites and NodeJS is the runtime environment of javascript. While you are using NodeJS for the backend, you have to learn about databases i.e.MongoDB. MongoDB is a document database used to build highly available and scalable internet applications. Every website has three major pillars i.e. frontend, backend and database.

Django- Django is a high-level Python web framework that follows model-template-view architecture. It is used to simplify the creation of complex websites. It is fast and promotes a clean design. Django is free and open source. Django helps developers to avoid many common security mistakes by providing a framework that helps to show "the right things to do" d to protect the website automatically. Django helps a lot in providing secure way to manage user accounts and passwords.

ExpressJS - Node.js is a javascript run fast time environment, but it does not support request handling, HTTP methods or serving files, so this is where Express js comes into the picture. Express.js framework is designed for building APIs, web applications etc. It helps in creating html template files with less code and render HTML pages. Express js is trending so, most of the companies are moving towards it.

After learning frontend and backend now it's time to build a full stack project which includes frontend, backend as well as database. This is a very crucial time, as in this period the developer needs to create websites and host them on different free platforms. If you want to pay for hosting then you can go for AWS , Azure, Digital ocean etc.

Full Stack Development Projects ideas

There are some front-end frameworks and back-end frameworks as well as some other programming languages that we have not covered in this blog. This is a simple roadmap just for a person to get a basic idea regarding web development. Another completely different blog will come which will be based on frameworks and some commonly asked questions regarding web development.

Disclaimer - Never go for shortcuts in any kind of learning method, you may find a bunch of videos on youtube claiming full web development in some hours these are all clickbait. During this learning journey, you need to have patience and just give your effort you'll definitely get the result.
