We select a tech stack and build a team based on the requirements for each particular project.

When the requirements become clear to the development team, it’s the right time to think about the components of the future backend.

What is needed to build a solid backend?

To build a highly reliable and scalable backend for your project, it’s necessary to select suitable components, including infrastructure, a tech stack, frameworks, and architecture, and choose developers with relevant skills and experience.

Infrastructure

Companies can have different needs and requirements regarding the backend of their system. This may concern the server’s location, data processing speed, storage space, etc.

Choosing your backend infrastructure

We choose infrastructure depending on the demands of a particular client and project. Thus, we consider the required performance of the server as well as the need for the system’s availability, scalability, and flexibility. Based on your requirements and budget, we can offer a suitable platform, such as AWS, Heroku, or another one to build, deploy, and manage your product.

Tech stack

The backend tech stack comprises a broad range of tools necessary to build server-side applications. Among these are programming languages, databases, and other technologies.

Selecting a tech stack for your backend

When selecting a backend tech stack, our developers reckon with the following factors:

  • product’s specifications (type, intended purpose, size, complexity, etc.)
  • project’s timeline and budget
  • team’s technology proficiency

Bearing the above details in mind, we opt for the best-suited tech stack to make a scalable product coherent with your needs and expectations.

Frameworks

There are a variety of frameworks or libraries of programming languages facilitating the backend development process. Choosing the right framework is an important task for a development team.

Choosing a backend framework

To identify the right backend framework, Mad Devs relies on the following selection criteria:

  • app requirements
  • scalability
  • speed
  • cost-efficiency
  • customizability

The frameworks we determine enable us to build products faster and ensure optimal performance and scalability of your backend software.

Architecture

The core elements of the backend architecture are the code and database. The former runs on the server and processes the clients’ requests, while the latter stores the app’s information.

Picking backend architecture

When deciding on the server-side architecture, we take account of:

  • business needs
  • product functionality
  • team’s experience

After considering your business needs and the product’s characteristics, we pick out the backend architecture with the right usability of code to ensure top-notch performance for the end-users.

Project’s team

Creating reliable server-side applications takes a team of developers well-versed in relevant backend technologies along with a PM, QA, and other specialists.

Selecting specialists for the project

We work closely with the Mad Devs management and HR department to obtain a complete view of the specialists available for the project. By choosing from the list of candidates, we build a team according to the skills, experience, and qualification level of the developers. Finally, we assign responsibilities and document them to reduce any confusion at the development stage.

Careful preparation guarantees that the development process will run smoothly. That’s why we pay close attention to the choice of infrastructure, a tech stack, architecture, frameworks, and a team for the project. In addition, we prepare logging, monitoring, and alerting tools.
