I was reading a job ad from a very large and well known car manufacturer, and in the job description they mention this

Main responsibilities:

  • Software development in the full vertical Android stack for the infotainment system

Is "the full vertical Android stack" an actual known concept, and if so, what is it?

    Full stack XXX = know how to design, develop, test & deploy software on XXX. Vertical is just noise - a stack isn't an horizontal thing anyway. – Tibo Oct 12 at 7:40

    @Tibo You've clearly never had a horizontal stack of pancakes before then. – Neil Oct 12 at 7:42
