If you’re reading this post beyond the title then chances are you at least have some technical knowledge of the various programming and scripting languages which go into the making of a web application, particularly those web applications which are more dynamic in their nature and features. You might even be a web designer/developer yourself, but not likely a full-stack developer since that would imply that your plate is always full with some work you have to complete for your clients if not trying to up-skill yourself by learning about the latest trends and practices in the development world.

Either way, JavaScript comes into focus as our topic of discussion today because of just how important it has come to be over the years in driving the dynamism of any web application or simple website which has a fighting chance of competing online. The scripting language which has gone through a remarkable transformation over the years has become about more than just dancing-links or coloured links, or indeed some frilly animation effects. I mean who wants an alphabet cursor trail distracting their website visitors if it does nothing more than offer a temporary thrill that lasts all of two seconds, but afterwards starts to become annoying in addition to hindering the user experience by slowing the site down?

JavaScript has indeed come a long way since it first gained traction as part of more dynamic web design practices, to the point that we now have entire JavaScript libraries at our disposal which pretty much list all the functions we need to cover all the dynamic features of a modern web application. This is where full-stack developers start proving that one can never truly refer to themselves as a complete full-stack developer. There’s just too much to have to learn on somewhat of a specialist level in each of the programming and scripting languages that come together to make up the LAMP stack (plus JavaScript, of course).

You kind of have to choose a dominant speciality and if that dominant speciality is not in React.js, you’ll simply need to rope in the services of a specialist developer of that JavaScript library. You’ll otherwise just have to spend too much time trying to catch up on all the latest developments to start depicting some competency, which would be way too much of an ask of yourself since there are entire service providers like Netguru who specialise in React.js development.

This swiftly brings into focus what is perhaps the key take-away from this post, which is that of how you’d gauge the quality of the service you’d get in picking out a developer to work with. It’s a simple matter of looking at their portfolio of completed project solutions as this serves as an indication of what their services are all about in their practical application.

If you’re working on an e-commerce site for example, the developer should be able to demonstrate to you their competence in having produced practical and workable solutions in the e-commerce space.
