Good Morning Sir,

I’m kindly asking about what ’ * You don’t have a backend development focus’ stands for ?
Would you like to provide me some descriptive example of such approach to validate myself wether I’m proper person.

Best Regards

Hi Leszek,

thanks for the question!

A backend development focus means you have more experience on backend development and this is your strong point.

For instance, you can be a full stack developer, but you are more skilled on the backend part. In our case with Ruby focus.

Best regards
