Picking the Right Technology Stack for Your Software Application Project

Nowadays technology is like a deep ocean, there are so many technologies, languages, frameworks, extensions, libraries, it is solving tons of purposes in our everyday life. In order to succeed in tech world, understanding and choosing the right stack of tech language is crucial. Very often, when any developer is starting out, usually he would try out many different languages, frameworks and extensions and would choose only the ones that are delivering the following items – performance, scalability, ease of use, readably, active community that supports the tech.

In this article, we will explore different types of software development projects and suggest some of the most popular technology stack combinations that can be used for each project type.

1) Front-end Development

For front-end development, developers usually choose JavaScript as the programming language. The most popular framework currently is ReactJS. React has a huge ecosystem and many available libraries.

2) Back-end Development

For back-end development, there are many programming languages to choose from, including PHP, Java, Python, and Ruby. However, the most popular language for back-end development is currently Node.js. Node.js is a JavaScript runtime built on Chrome’s V8 JavaScript engine. Node.js is used for developing server-side and networking applications.

At Veido we’ve developed a hybrid enterprise software engine built on Laravel framework with more scalable functionality for enterprise operation, connected with Node.js for less crucial operational tasks.

3) Mobile Development

For mobile development, the most popular programming languages are currently Swift for iOS development and Java for Android development. However, hybrid mobile development platforms such as React Native can produce results much quicker and help make your vision a reality in 3/4 times smaller deadlines then native app development.

4) Desktop App Development

For desktop development, the most popular programming languages are currently C++ and Java. In the recent years we’ve seen a large trend of software solutions switching to Web based solutions, but in case desktop alternative might be necessary, those solutions support Desktop application generation with minimal resource investment for app customization.

Alternatively, Mac architecture on new chips starting from M1 started to support iOS apps deployed and optimized for Mac use, allowing to build in more value pretty much instantly.

5) VR/AR Experience & Game Development

For game development, the most popular programming languages are currently C++ and Java. However, within such experience design and development, more important is choosing the platform for such projects where these languages can be supporting it. Primary platforms for CGI, VR/AR development are Unity and Unreal Engine 5 – allowing to bootstrap projects and assist with achieving high-end result.

Why is it important to choose tech language or framework?

Your organization will be working with this language/framework on a daily basis on developing your projects, you want to ensure that all goals that you’ve set are achievable, thus, it is important that the tech you chose is able to support your final goals. Definitely you wouldn’t want to end up in situation where you or your company has invested 1 year in developing software and your project has kicked off, user base is growing and then you have to re-write the whole project because the initial tech stack doesn’t support that high of performance.
