Being a Full-Stack developer is a good career path however you really need to have a plan before you start anything otherwise you will get lost in tutorial hell. This is the path I would follow.

Front-End

  1. HTML/CSS
  2. JavaScript
  3. React

Back-End

  1. Node.js
  2. NoSQL/SQL

Now you can call yourself a MERN developer.

There is no best way because there are many different courses available plus you could read the official documentation on their website. It is easy to get overwhelmed when too many resources are put in front of you. I can show you two courses I used on Udemy. They are both by Stephen Grider so the teaching style is the same in both courses. You will learn React, Redux and React Native. That means you will be able to create web, mobile and desktop apps.

However you need to learn JavaScript properly first. I think this one is the best on Udemy it's by Jonas Schmedtmann.

It is the acronym for the developer technical stack. Mongo, Express, React, Node (MERN). Those are the technologies associated with it. You also have the MEAN stack where the "A" is Angular.
