Hey Ivan,

I totally get your point, but it depends where you come from.
If you have no experience this is a good step up to full-stack
If you already have experience/job in the field, it's more front-end.

I do not agree a front-end dev should know anything about connecting to backends, being a serverless thing or a actual database.
This is something "society" forced on everyone, same as expecting back-end devs to know design all of a sudden.

The article which includes Strapi, can be considered "full-stack" depending on the company, the people who benefit from this article are mainly junior/starting people, keep in mind they need to start somewhere and will most likely not get recruited by a Google on the first try.

So yes, i agree but we as a tech industry must also see we need to shape people and we can't throw them in the deep and expect a front-ender to fully build a database structure.
Using a serverless database is then a great first step.

Hope you're seeing my point here.

I see your point and I agree for the Strapi (great tool btw) article. I also agree that this is great article for juniors and beginners.

Frontend is fragmented today so I assumed that frontend is sum of it all (styling, JS and API consuming), but doesn't have to be - that's probably where my comment came from.

Yeah I 100% got you,

Planning to write about the different job roles soon and what they actually entail too.

So keep an eye out for that one.
