Top 5 Tips for Building a Scalable Technology
Stack
  • If you want to build a house, youll need to
    start by going brick by brick. The same is true
    of a technology stack. Your developers need to
    start by writing line by line, code by code in
    order to create something truly worthwhile.
  • While its easy to create a clear plan for a
    building since the process has a clear start and
    an end, this isnt as clear in the tech space.
  • The tech world is always changing. What worked
    today isnt guaranteed to keep working tomorrow.
  • Thats why you need agile, ready-for-anything
    development that can adapt to new technology
    quickly.
  • You cant predict what these changes will be, but
    you can make a plan for creating something thats
    scalable.
  • That way, you can build upwards without worrying
    about your technology becoming obsolete or
    outdated.

  • 1. Choosing the Right Tech Stack.
  • One of the most important parts of building a
    scalable stack is knowing which tech to choose in
    the first place. The best choice might not be the
    most common.
  • While we can all agree that React and Angular are
    efficient and popular, they might not be the best
    tool for your specific project.
  • Think of the type of project youre planning to
    build. Are you launching a mobile application? If
    so, then you might prefer to use Cordova which is
    a cross-platform development tool for mobile
    applications.
  • While no two are alike (or perfect!), you can
    come pretty close with some research. First, look
    into any resources.
  • How much support can you find for this tech
    stack? How widely is it used? Next, consider its
    longevity. In the world of technology, things
    move fast.
  • Can you count on this stack staying relevant?
    These are the key questions that will help you
    narrow your search.

  • 2. Stay Scalable with Your Plan.
  • You wouldnt start building a home without
    blueprints, right? So you wouldnt bother with a
    tech stack until you had a clear plan either.
  • Well-designed software architecture will make
    your product future-proof. Its how you create
    something thats adaptable.
  • Instead of creating one monolithic software,
    break that into a larger number of independent
    services. These are unique, individual features
    all under the same project.
  • Theyre easier to manage, and theyre flexible.
    This is known as microservice, and it helps you
    stay autonomous. You can update a single feature
    without disrupting the entire logic of the
    application.
  • 3. Know your Infrastructure.
  • If you have a weak infrastructure, you have no
    room to grow. As we said before, you need to
    always be looking skyward.

6
  • That means preparing for server changes from the
    start, possibly through a cloud infrastructure.
  • Many of these cloud servers allow you to pay as
    you go, which means you dont have to pay an
    outrageous amount when you only need a little bit
    of hosting at first.
  • Starting with this scalability in mind will help
    reduce any headaches later on.
  • 4. Prepare for Fast Deployment.
  • Deploying single products or features one at a
    time is not an effective strategy. Your
    competition is quickly producing more and more,
    so you need to have a system for continuous
    software deployment.
  • This means having a clear system for developing
    and testing new features quickly and effectively.
  • You cant have any errors that will slow down
    your application or scare away potential
    users. Junkins is a tool that can help you master
    this deployment.

  • 5. Check for Errors.
  • While wed all like to believe our code is
    perfect every time, errors happen. And when they
    do, you need a plan of attack to get back up and
    running quickly.
  • From how we deal with exceptions to how we
    monitor app growth, you need to have everything
    in a single platform that will track app
    performance over time such as this tool
    for application performance monitoring and
    alerting by AppOptics.
  • If youre able to track your performance, you can
    start to notice when things might go wrong. This
    allows you to interfere quickly and prevent the
    problem from happening in the first place, thus
    strengthening your app.
  • Additionally, if things do go wrong, you have a
    clear system for tracking these errors.

8
  • Be Ready for Anything.
  • In the world of tech stacks, anything can happen.
    While technical errors arent always available,
    they can be prevented with some clear planning
    and insight.
  • The most important thing you can do is ensure
    youre staying agile and productive. Theres no
    room for slow deployment in this fast-moving
    industry. Is your company ready?
