The Register - Mon, 01/15/2018 - 16:34
Because you need to ‘capitalize on exponential intelligence fueled by pervasive tech’ and only IBM can do that

What do you guys use to build your API backends? What should i use?

Developing Android Apps - Mon, 01/15/2018 - 16:01

Hey guys! I'm an experienced programer and but i've recently really gotten into Android development. I've mostly made custom projects (e-commerce sites, ERP systems etc). For web based projects Laravel (PHP with MySQL) has been my go-to framework. It's really easy and quick to make a secure and reasonably fast backend.

I've made a few apps with APIs made on Laravel. I've recently started a project that involves me scraping data from sites and displaying it on an app. I'm using Python to do the scraping part. And i'm planning to use MongoDB as my database because the data being collected can get huge and it's not related, so i don't have to make a RDB. I've seen tutorials for MEAN stack development but haven't gotten around to use it properly. So i don't know what to think of it.

What do you guys use for your APIs? Is there and advantage of using Express,Node and Mongo over PHP? Is PHP even used in the app industry or considered a good practice? I hear MEAN and such other frameworks are the future (Ruby and stuff), should i move over to them?
