Full Stack Web Developer VS WordPress Web Developer

In this blog, we will discuss the difference between A full-stack and WordPress developer. and why they both are different than each other.

The website is made up of two components, Frontend, and Backend, Frontend is the part that users see on the screen whereas the backend is the hidden part that performs background functions like handling calls, submitting forms, update data in the frontend, realtime updates, etc. The one who makes both the frontend and backend is known as a full-stack developer.

WordPress is a website maker made by Matt Mullenweg and released on May 27, 2003.

WordPress provides a set of tools that helps a non-coder person to make a website without any knowledge of coding.

The person who makes the WordPress based website with the pre-made snippets and themes of WordPress is called a WordPress developer.

The first thing I want to clear you out is “WordPress developers are not said to be a web developer”. A full-stack developer is the one who makes the complete frontend and backend part by his own coding, without help from any other person. Whereas WordPress is a tool, made by Matt Mullenweg on May 27, 2003, through which anyone can make a website without any knowledge of coding. So if u have made the website without coding then u will not be called a web developer, also if u have copy-pasted some Adsense or similar ads then also u cant be called a programmer/developer, it’s just the copy-paste.

Also, if u make a website with other website makers like Blogger, Wix, etc. then also you will not be called a full stack web developer.

Conclusion: Until and unless u have understood and changed the frontend and backend codes of the website, u can’t be said as a full stack web developer.
