No sir, you are not a Full Stack developer at 23 and you will not be for at least 20 years, if at all. It seems like people are using the term really loosely nowadays, as if the phrase is a requirement to be even considered a candidate.
Just stop it.
Stop using it if you do not really have a profound knowledge in IA, UI, and UX and you actually studied them. If you do not feel like fish in a water in your Docker swarms, pulling haproxies and debugging cluster switches. Don't use it if you have only a vague understanding of what data modeling and business logic are. Don't use it if API for you is connecting to Twitter and deployment automation is something you've read a blog post about.
Just don't use it. Because let's face it - if you know all of this you are no expert in any of it.
Trust me, you will be hired for this, and above all, for being honest.
We also have some great tools like puppet, chef, Salt, Capistrano, fabric and even DISM to enable the use of technology without commitment to a vertical.
In general, though, I agree that the whole "full stack developer" generalist nonsense is annoying. Even if you're 43, using AngularJS on node on AWS is still a silo and so is Rails+Chef+Sass+Coffee+HAML.
