  • Though we live in the mobile-dominated age, web
    applications are still prevalent and a preferred
    choice for enterprises for certain features.
    Progressive web apps is an example of the web
    apps adaptability and capability to act like
    mobile apps. It is fair to mention that web
    applications are here to stay. As technology
    evolves, many advancements arrive for developing
    a web application with desired features.
  • However, for building a successful web
    application, you need to choose the right blend
    of technologies or a high-quality technology
    stack. The proper technology stack can increase
    your web applications market reach and make the
    entire web app development project successful.
    The technology stack has a direct impact on the
    performance of the web application. Once you
    identify the right technology stack, you can hire
    full-stack web developers for your project.
  • Looking at the importance of choosing the right
    technology stack, here we cover every aspect
    related to the necessary factors and structure of
    various technologies. But, before digging deep
    into the topic, lets find out the meaning of a
    technology stack.

3
  • What is technology stack?
  • Technology stack is a combination of all
    technical components like tools, programming
    languages, frameworks, and technologies useful
    for developing customized software. When it comes
    to web app development, we need to think about
    the structure of technology stack from two
    aspects-
  • Front-end
  • Back-end
  • Lets go through them one after another.
  • Front-end Web Development Technologies
  • Front-end web development enables users to see
    and interact with your app. Web browsers like
    Safari or Chrome are responsible for user
    interaction. As the front-end development is
    responsible for the user interaction,
    technologies used in it are known as client-side
    technologies.
  • HTML and CSS
  • Hyper Text Markup Language (HTML) and Cascading
    Style Sheets (CSS) are like the backbone of web
    development. HTML is useful for designing the
    front-end portion of web pages by defining the
    link between the web pages. CSS, on the other
    hand, makes the web pages appealing by managing
    the design components. Simply put, HTML makes the
    web page while CSS gives style to it.

  • JavaScript and Related Libraries
  • JavaScript is a scripting language for making the
    website interactive. When it comes to web app
    development, it can enhance the web apps
    functionality. AngularJS, ReactJS, etc. are
    popular JavaScript-based frameworks that are
    extensively used for developing user-friendly and
    interactive web apps.

    Framework to Choose in 2020
  • Backend Web Development Technologies
  • The back-end web development is designed to
    powering the front-end while enabling users to
    perform specific actions. This part is not
    visible to users, and therefore, it is known as
    server-side technologies.
  • Backend technologies consist of programming
    languages, servers, and databases. Here we go
    through some of the important programming
    languages and databases.
  • Programming Languages
  • PHP It is a server-side scripting language. As
    the most popular and preferred language, PHP
    empowers many websites and web applications.
    CakePHP and Laravel are important PHP-based
    frameworks for developing customized web
    solutions.

5
  • Java It is also one of the most popular and
    useful programming languages for developing web
    solutions. It is a highly scalable and flexible
    language to build a successful web application.
  • C It is a highly-used programming language
    for competitive programming. As a backend
    language, it is used to build a customized web
    application.
  • Ruby It is a reflective, object-oriented,
    dynamic language. Everything available in this
    language is in the object form. However, procs
    and lambda are replacements of Rubys components
    in blocs.
  • Databases
  • Oracle This database treats the collection of
    data as a unit. Oracle enables users to store and
    retrieve information on any query. It is useful
    to manage information efficiently.
  • MongoDB It is the most popular, open-source,
    document-oriented NoSQL database. Here No
    denotes as non-relational. MongoDB is not
    dependent on the table-like relational database
    but provides a completely different mechanism for
    storage and data retrieval.
  • Servers
  • Nginx It is an HTTP and reverse proxy server,
    a generic TCP/UDP proxy server, and a mail proxy
    server.
  • Apache It offers a high-level of abstraction
    for processing. It also provides a high-level
    scripting language Pig Latin to develop a data
    analysis code.

  • After looking at various popular technology
    stacks, lets go through top factors to consider
    while choosing the right technology stack.

    the delivery business worldwide
  • Which Factors Should You Consider While Choosing
    Technology Stack?
  • Every web application has a different size and
    feature requirements. Other important factors are
    scalability, duration, security, and web app
    development cost.
  • Lets discuss all the important factors for
    developing a web application with desired
    features and excellent functionality.
  • App Size
  • The size of your web app matters the most while
    selecting the right technology stack. The reason
    is simple- if your web app is large, it becomes
    more complex, and therefore, you need a more
    advanced and robust tech stack.
  • Small web apps These apps consist of 1 to 3 web
    pages, portfolios, and other web-based solutions.
    Such apps do not require much time to develop.
  • Med-size web apps Apps for financial sectors,
    online businesses, etc. fall under this category.
    They need a more complex and advanced technology
    stack than small apps.
  • Large web apps Social networking apps and
    on-demand marketplaces are considered as large
    web apps. They need higher performance,
    scalability, and serviceability as compared to
    mid-sized and small web apps.

7
  • Scalability
  • Every web app is designed to handle the load of
    activities done by a large number of visitors or
    regular users. The ability to handle this load is
    known as the scalability of a web app. When you
    hire expert app developers, they can choose the
    best technology for your web app project.
    Usually, the average and approximate number of
    visitors are kept in mind while developing a
    scalable web app.
  • Web developers select the best technology stack
    for supporting horizontal and vertical growth of
    the web app. Horizontal growth means the growth
    in the number of users or visitors, whereas
    vertical growth is the capability to manage new
    features and functionality.
  • Duration of App Development
  • Time to Market or TTM is also an important factor
    while choosing the right technology stack. If you
    want to come up with the web app quickly then you
    can opt for MVP development. MVP stands for
    Minimum Viable Product and it has a reduced TTM.
  • Apart from short development time, MVP can help
    you get valuable feedback from early users, and
    you can easily implement necessary changes in
    features as per feedback. But then, just MVP
    development is not enough, and therefore, you
    need to hire full-stack developers to develop an
    MVP.

8
  • MVP development has two major benefits- shorter
    duration and saving in cost. The modern web
    development company can help you come up with an
    MVP with necessary features.
  • Security
  • This is one of the biggest factors to consider.
    Today, people are getting more concerned about
    protecting their privacy, and therefore, you need
    to focus on making your web app highly secure. As
    per the IBM report, the average cost of a data
    breach is 3.9 million globally.
  • It is necessary to follow all guidelines and
    comply with regulations to ensure the security of
    your web app. Almost all web development
    technologies provide detailed security guidelines
    documents that help users prevent cyber-attack
    threats.
  • Development Cost
  • Finally, the cost is also a big factor to
    consider. It is advisable to keep a specific
    budget aside to develop a web application for
    your enterprise. Though most technology stacks
    are open-source and you need not pay anything to
    use them, you need to buy subscription plans for
    using advanced features and customizations.
  • Another cost includes the rate of web developers.
    Here, it is fair to mention that full-stack
    developers and dedicated developers have
    different hourly rates. You can consult a reputed
    web development company to get the most suitable
    options for your web project needs.

You should maintain the balance between your
budget and web app requirements while selecting
the technology stack. Example of Right Technology

in the online world. Apart from having a
competitive edge, you can simplify complexities
and increase productivity through a
seamlessly-performing web application. We hope
that this comprehensive guide will assist you to
select the right tech stack for developing a web
application. With this, you need to focus on
design and user experience as well.
