When creating a website, web application, or mobile app for your business, choosing the right technology stack will play a huge role in the final product’s long-term success. With an expert development team implementing a combination of cutting-edge, well-integrated technologies, your company can build software that is efficient, scalable, and secure. On the flip side, a poorly-built tech stack introduces many issues, such as complex development workflows, poor customer experiences, excessive operational costs, and threats to data security. 

Every software application is different, so how do you know which tech stack is right for your project? Whether you’re creating a marketing site, a B2B portal, or a mobile gaming app, it’s important to understand how tech stacks work, why they’re important, and what to keep in mind when evaluating different approaches. 

Tech stacks are made up of various technologies, from servers, to operating systems, to programming languages and frameworks. Regardless of the project, every tech stack has two key elements. The client side—or front end—consists of tools that developers use to create the user experience (UX). These include HTML, CSS, and JavaScript. And the server side—or back end—contains tools that are designed to power the entire system. This is where you’ll find the server, operating system, and a database such as MySQL or Redis. All of these technologies work together to create digital products like the sites and apps we interact with daily. 

In this eBook, we dive deeper into the various solutions that make up software applications, as well as provide best practices for evaluating and choosing a tech stack. We also discuss the benefits of teaming up with a web development agency like Codal to help with the planning and execution of your business’ site or app.
