Will Serverless kill the Full Stack Developer Role

The role of the full stack developer seems to be diminishing. See Full-Stack Development in the Era of Serverless Computing written by Nader Dabit.

Today, a front-end developer can hook into the services of a “serverless” provider (like Google’s Firebase) and create a “Google class” application with little or no back-end code at a fraction of the time and cost of what was previously possible.

This blog post is not without a sense of irony. This blog is hosted on firebase (a “serverless” provider”) at the time of this post’s original publication (and I am a Full Stack Developer).
