Tech

Full Stack - evolved

Technology is a pretty broad subject, and if you're into one area of tech it's pretty likely you're into all areas, or at the very least you can enjoy geeking out on any and all tech subjects.

Groktor is seriously into Tech!

We each have our specialised areas of expertise but can also see how all the other parts of the system fit together and can help optimise across the board.

API's

You want a native app or PWA? You're going to need a performant and scalable API!

current stack of choice for API services:

  • Nginx
  • express.js
  • Node
  • TypeScript
  • Redis (pub/sub and various caches)
  • Mongo or Psql
  • Docker

We find this a good choice for 99% of API's today but also have a huge amount of experience with: C#.NET, Java, Rails, Django and more.

Native apps

We're sticking with SWIFT for iOS and Kotlin for Android. Frameworks that offer cross-compiling to both just don't deliver when you get past the "hello world" examples. You still have to know the individual platform SDK to really get to the nitty gritty. Unless you're talking about games where Unity is often coming out on top.

Progressive Web Apps

We're currently loving Vue.js and think it's the most exciting in the area. Angular is losing the race and React has good support and a good network or developers, but, facebook.

"Simple" websites, consider using Jamstack. This site is built using Nuxt.js, Vuetify and deployed with netlify.
