Engineering Process Practices

Technology Stack Guides

Mobile:

  • Android and iOS for fully native experiences with top performance
  • React Native for cost-effective hybrid cross-platform solutions that aren't performance sensitive

Backend:

  • Golang for Ops and CLI tools, as well as network services and APIs
  • Node.JS using established languages like CoffeeScript, ES6, or TypeScript for small IO-heavy services with little compute requirements and when using only one language for both frontend and backend has advantages.
  • Scala for big code bases, complex business logic, large-scale data processing, or anything on top of the JVM/Apache ecosystem

Frontend:

  • React for rich web UIs
  • WebPack for compiling front-end assets

Devops:

  • Ansible for configuration management
  • Docker for packaging software into containers
  • Packer for creating machine and container images
  • Terraform for infrastructure-as-code

Others:

  • Haskell
  • LiveScript for internal projects based on Node.JS
  • Python for machine learning
  • Ruby on Rails for rapid prototyping and small to mid-sized monolithic projects without much traffic
