We've asked experienced engineers to share how they would explain some tech terminology at three levels of experience - from junior developer to CTO.

Why should you use a full-stack web framework as a web developer?

Matija Sosic, co-founder of one such framework, Wasp, explains what a full-stack framework is and that their value proposition is in the ‘batteries included’ experience. They provide provides an end-to-end solution to build a complete web application: the frontend user interface, backend server, and database management.

For senior developers and, especially, CTOs, the benefit is always saving time – and money:

“The pitch of every web framework is abstraction and making things easier. Instead of spending hours figuring out what stack to use for a project, you trust that a framework will offer you the best way to do something at that point in time.”
