6 elements to consider when choosing a tech stack3 min read



A tech stack is defined as the set of technologies used to build a web or mobile application. It is a combination of programming languages, frameworks, libraries, patterns, servers, UI/UX solutions, software, and tools used by its developers.

Choosing the most suitable tech stack for your new project is essential, it affects the performance of your website or app, which changes the experience your users have with it. If you’re a startup with the goal to test your business as soon as possible, you’ll use different tools and technologies than an enterprise scaling up an existing solution that serves hundreds of thousands of users.

That’s one of the many reasons why you should think about different elements when choosing the tech stack that better fits your needs:

1) The main one: What does you project actually needs?

First thing first: you’ve got to keep in mind the complexity and size of your project. Depending on the requirements of each project, you’ll have to make the decisions to use certain technologies, so they can fulfill your project needs.

One may look for guidance in other development projects but not any technology will work the same for each project. You need to know what you’re looking for and what you need to implement to let yourself choose the best tools for the features you want to install.

2) Time

Perhaps you need the project to be developed as soon as possible. This is why choosing worked solutions or frameworks that have a simple integration could be your right fit. Building up a combination of great and easy to adapt technologies can help you out to reduce the development time of your app or website.

3) Scalability

Scaling is not just about technology, it is also about how fast you can change/improve/modify features and how fast you can bring new people into your organization to enable growth. This way, choosing a tech stack that enables these changes to be done easily is important. The choice of technology determines the potential of scalability.

4) Keep your budget in mind

While developing the project, you also need to consider: your team, their skills, and your area of expertise. Choosing a stack that your developers aren’t experienced in, would doom the need to hire third-party developers. This might cost high in your pocket. Hence, before you make a decision on the web development stack, sit with your team, know what they consider appropriate and then end up on a sound decision.

5) Security

Every user wants to be sure that their personal data is secure. Always keep in mind what will work best for protecting all the data of your users. This is essential. Being the protection of banking or basic information you must build an app or a website that ensures these are protected. So, it’s better to choose technologies that offer high security.

6) Maintenance

You need to consider that your team must be able to maintain the application after it is released. You have to choose a tech stack that your team can handle and knows how to work, so any future changes or corrections can be made without any problem.
