There are lot of misconception about stack in tech ecosystem, some developers especially the junior, aspiring developers and lot more are confuse about the stack they belong.

sometimes stack can be confusing and aspiring developers cannot differentiate or knows what makes up a particular stack they just learn any languages/libraries/framework that comes their way,i have been a victim of this and i want every aspiring developer to learn and know their stack.

"Stack" tends to refer to tools (i.e. "the tech stack"), rather than roles/titles which is what you've outlined above.

Interesting that you say you've been victim to "just learning any languages/etc. that [came your way]", because that probably isn't a terrible way to get a feel for what you do/don't enjoy, so although it might feel like time has been wasted on that, you're probably better off for it really.

It can be helpful to have a rough idea of what different roles are out there, and then using those to focus what you learn of course. Although unfortunately some roles, like "full stack developer" mean entirely different things to different people.

If you're interested in seeing actual tech stacks that people use in the real world, Stack Share is a pretty good place to look.
