Technology Stack

Technology stack, or tech stack for short, also called a data ecosystem or solutions stack, is the combination of all the technologies like programming languages, frameworks and other software products used to build and run a software application (web or mobile).

For example, the Instagram tech stack includes Python, Django, PostgreSQL, GraphQL, nginx, Cassandra, HTML/CSS, JavaScript, Webpack, etc.

There is no ideal tech stack perfectly fitted to build any software application. So, it is very important to choose the right tech stack for your software application based on its characteristics like functionality, the number of users, the amount of data to process, the format of data to process (pics, video files, text files, audio files, and others) and so on.
