This is some kind of a poll to understand what is your current tech stack for web development.
There are no right or wrong stacks, I just want to know why you choose some technologies over the rest.
For example, in the company I worked in we used:
In backend development
Server – Nginx
Frameworks – Ruby on Rails, Hanami, Sinatra, Node.js, Express
Databases – MongoDB, Elasticsearch, Solr, Redis, Mysql, Postgres, Neo4j
Frontend tech stack
Libraries – React.js, Redux, Mobx, Apollo, GraphQL
Markup – HTML5, CSS3
Infrastructure and DevOps
Configuration, DevOps – Docker, Kubernetes, Terraform, Ansible, Capistrano
Hosting – AWS, Heroku, Google Cloud, Microsoft Azure, DigitalOcean
Why we use Rails?
In a nutshell, Ruby on Rails backend development helps the workload become easier for software architects and developers through the collection of pre-packaged codes that make the development of the backend seamless and fast. It makes the entire programming a lot speedier and more profitable.
Talking about other technologies my previous company used in web development:
- Node.js because it is perfect for backend development of real-time and chat apps, workforce and facility management apps, web portals and field service apps.
- PHP is great for general website development and server-side scripting, as well as supporting WordPress and Drupal projects. Also, it supports a wide range of databases.
- React.js framework helps us to develop fast, scalable and simple user interfaces. We use it for stock trading and e-commerce solutions, web-based video conference apps, and other frontend services. React allows us to create large web applications that can change data without reloading the page.
