If you created a new web app/business what framework would you use?

Posted 18 October 2019 - 05:18 PM

To me it seems like nodejs on the backend and react on the front is becoming a common answer. It also helps that a lot of people know these technologies so hiring should be easy.

I don't know what I'd choose for a DB. probably whatever is open source and is good with scalability.


How about you?

I personally abhor Javascript, so therefore no Node.js for me. I would very likely use C# or Go. Based on the following articles, it looks like a bunch of people have jumped ship from Node.js over to Go:

Kotlin and http4k. I don't tend to do much front end, so if I could, I'd probably just write front end code in Kotlin (transpiling to JS, obviously). I don't know how mature the Kotlin JS stuff is, though.

As for a database, it would depend on what my needs were.

Impossible to accurately answer without actual requirements. I hate these types of questions in interviews, because they always want you to answer with whatever they use, without regard to what is actually best.


And Framework is not the same as stack, which is where this went.

ASP.NET Core2.*, Razor Pages, and MSSQL. Maybe sprinkle in some Bootstrap for fun.

Language preferences tend to dictate which stack. And languages and stacks tend to dictate which framework. Try LAMP stack using C#...

So maybe this thread has gone from what would you choose, to what would you not choose.
