There comes a lot of questions in one’s mind when he/she starts developing an application. It is particularly a problem for those who are new in this field. They don’t understand where to get started or what procedure to follow. While frontend may not be that big of a deal for many developers, back-end has to be perfect to provide application to the customer. Here I have shared exactly how you can select the best technology for the backend of your app.
Mobile or Web App?
There are many things to consider before you start development. What kind of app are you developing? Is it for a mobile device or a web application? If it’s mobile application, you need to know the targeted operating systems. For each kind of applications, different types of platform are considered best. For example, for an android application, there is no platform that can compete with the Android Studio.
On the other hand, even Android Studio may not be a good choice if you are developing a mobile game. Make a list of all these things, see the best platform for each. If you are developing for more than one platforms, you might want to prefer a cross-platform.
What Are Your Expertise?
It can take a lot of time to learn and master a new technology no matter how experienced of a developer you are. You should definitely consider your background and expertise when deciding a backend platform. For example, you have more experience in C#, then try selecting a platform that uses this language. If you chose a technology which requires Java language, you might not be able to complete that project on time. Besides, your lack of experience in the platform and language might compromise the quality of the work.

Decide a Language
Language is most probably the most important thing to consider when choosing a backend technology for an application. There are a lot of programming languages. It is recommended to choose one that you have the most experience in. Make sure you get all clients’ requirements right. If he has asked for a specific language, see which platforms are best in that language for your application. Even in the backend of one language, you will find a lot of platforms. That’s why you need to get every detailed requirement for the app and how it will be used, then opt for one platform of that language.
Choose a Framework
Frameworks are created to make our programming easy, fast, and more efficient. They have succeeded in their goals to some extent, but still, there is no framework that we can call best. There are frameworks that may be considered best for one type of project, but it’s not the one size fits all case. You have to determine the best framework for your client’s requirements within the language that you decide. In each type of language, application, and technology, you will find about two to three renowned frameworks. See the pros and cons of each framework and see which works best for you and your client.
