So what exactly does a Cyber Security Technician do?
A full-stack software developer writes code not only for the user’s front-end web applications or mobile applications, but they’re also writing API code that sits in the middle, they’re writing server code that sits in the back, and they’re also connecting and communicating with databases. Essentially a full-stack developer does both front-end and back-end development. But that’s not all. They also understand how those pieces work together, and they’re able to create the communication and integration that exists between those two sides.
