Full-stack development is rapidly changing, almost like a shape-shifter from a sci-fi movie. The stakes are high because picking the right platform can really make a difference on your bottom line. Vue.js, React.js, and Node.js all bring many different elements to the table, and to help us sort through them, we have asked for one of our in-house experts to assist us on our quest for full-stack enlightenment.
Without further ado, here’s Oleksandr.
Mary: Hey Oleksandr! Tell us about yourself.
Oleksandr: Hello! I’m Oleksandr. I’m a full-stack developer here at Reliable. I’m 30 years old and I live with my wife in Zhytomyr, Ukraine. For people familiar with Zhytomyr, it may seem like a small unexciting city, but I actually like it. It’s so quiet.
Mary: How long have you been at Reliable and what was your background before joining the team?
Oleksandr: I’ve worked for Reliable for about six months now. Previously I was a freelancer in Ukraine and elsewhere around the globe.
Mary: What does a typical workday look like for you?
Oleksandr: Every day starts with a cup (or two) of coffee, and then with fresh eyes I start my workday. My team lead is Viktor Solovey, Reliable’s CEO and founding partner. He and I often have a quick call to start the day and jump right into problem-solving using Microsoft Teams. I also collaborate with new team members to make sure that we don’t get overloaded.
Mary: What would you say is the most rewarding part of your job?
Oleksandr: I think the best part of my job is to see projects grow from a concept to reality. It’s very rewarding to see how happy clients are with the work we do. We have a “client love” channel in our company Microsoft Teams account that really brightens everyone’s day and keeps our team motivated.
Mary: Reliable now offers Node, React, and Vue. What are these programming languages and who uses them?
Mary: When is it better to use Node, React, and Vue versus a PHP stack?
Mary: Are there different use cases for when a client should consider React, Node, or Vue?
Oleksandr: It depends on the project, but if you expect a lot of traffic, I would recommend React or Vue with Node versus PHP. But again it depends on the site and what you’re trying to do exactly. For example, Facebook uses C++ and PHP for its backend and React for its front-end. To further illustrate when to these tools, take a look at how some larger software companies are utilizing React, Vue, and Node:
Node: eBay, Twitter, Uber, LinkedIn, Trello, NASA, Netflix, PayPal
React: AirBNB, Yandex, VK, Wix, Reddit, Netflix, WhatsApp, Uber, Vimeo, Instagram, Codepen, Atlassian, Pinterest, Facebook, Revolut, Discord, BBC
Vue.js: Nintendo, Alibaba, Ozon, Gitlab
PHP: Facebook, Yahoo!, Wikipedia, BlaBlaCar, Google (YouTube)
Mary: What’s the next step for clients interested in working with Reliable on a React, Vue, or Node project?
Oleksandr: Email us at [email protected] or schedule a call with our proposal and onboarding specialist. We’ll work with you to understand your technical needs and goals and help you create a solid plan for bringing your project to life.
