Is it worth it to become a web full stack?

Read various articles on this issue, but I want to know the opinions of others. Now make saytik on freelancing, can in html5/css3/js/jquery and a little php and sql. Still want to leave in the back end(though I'm still there and not especially rummage, but like). But, on the other hand, do not want to drop front end. I'm afraid that if I web full stack, you'll be able to back'e and front e worse than the backender and frontender, respectively.

How do we know the limits of your capabilities? There are people who can be frontenders, bekederemo and Manager without compromising quality on any of the items. And there are those who even front to overpower normally incapable.
Even front... I'm a frontend developer felt disrespectful from your side, dear - Coy.Kihn8 commented on March 23rd 20 at 18:52
@Coy.Kihn8here "even" is used to mean "only". But in General, you are too serious should not be so sensitive to letters on the Internet. - Patricia commented on March 23rd 20 at 18:55

Not worth it.

I myself am 12 years was web full stack and even actively defended the view that web full stack is cool, it is convenient for the customers, it is useful (even must have) to know all the components and so and so. Then I decided to leave entirely in the backend. And spusti a few years I realized that this was one of the most important and correct decisions in my life/career.

Really and objectively compare the good with pretender fullsteam, good backender with fullsteam - hard. For all your level, it's hard to find someone with whom you can realistically compare. Therefore, backed by the science of the numbers I have. But the experience and feel - fullstack will always be on the same level below the specialist. Because physically he can't give each area as much time as a specialist.

My feeling is a narrow specialist can not understand the system entirely, and this adversely affects its ability to implement its part. This is probably why in recent years among large companies is such a lively hunt for T-shaped professionals. - Patricia commented on March 23rd 20 at 18:54
@Patricia, Yes, there is a line. To have an understanding (and preferably minimally passing skills) in related technologies - a must. The more the level is better - so obviously benefit more from that developer. But there is a line. In the face of this if a developer tries to understand the subtleties of these adjacent areas, it simply starts the lack of time, and then moved in one direction, slipped in the other. Roughly speaking, for example for a backend developer for the web a server-side language + a database at least understand the layout (HTML/CSS), front-end functionality (Javascript, HTTP(S) Protocol, cookie, etc.), the foundations of devops (file system, network stack, caching, bash/shell and the like flopping on the server). But all of this understanding is absolutely not to match the level of specialized pretender or admin/devops. To understand backender in the settings of TCP congestion control in linux kernel versions 2.* vs version 3.* absolutely not necessary - it is to devops. - clark.Wisozk17 commented on March 23rd 20 at 18:57

Only you can decide. But Yes, web full stack worse than a specialist's depth of knowledge

In the limit - Yes.
In reality - is not always the case. - lavada_Smi commented on March 23rd 20 at 18:56
@elser, people who are able grow fast enough to leads, architects, and other interesting items) - Jesus commented on March 23rd 20 at 18:59
@elser, do not make good programmers, bad managers only) this to me once, but I found a way) - Jesus commented on March 23rd 20 at 19:02
@elser, I'm leaving with the position of CTO itself by the fact that don't want to do this anymore. Communicate now with people only about the architectural position - Jesus commented on March 23rd 20 at 19:05
