India as a global IT hub has seen a constant increase in the demand for professionals in the sector especially, Full-Stack developers. A previous NASSCOM study shows Full-Stack Developer jobs as one of the five emerging jobs in India. This demand has been accelerated by the pandemic-led digitization of businesses and the emergence of new business models. Alongside the rise in demand, various research also indicates the need for upskilling among the existing graduates.
