What 'Full stack' Means To Me

Chris Coyier has an article called The Widening Responsibility of Front-End Developers and what I find most interesting about the article is how it skates over one of the most critical issue in web development since the release of Backbone.js: the emergence of data-driven websites. In the same way that a travel magazine, a cooking magazine, and a copy of the an annual farm report are different, so there are lots of different kinds of web development: the first is light and fluffy and needs no data; the second has some important data needs, especially if you allow for things like ingredient substitution, modifying serving counts, and nutritional information; the last is incredibly data-driven, being almost nothing but tables and charts.
