Website and app development is a complex process that requires the use of many different tools. The two most common are the LAMP stack for web applications, and Swift for iOS, and Java for Android (native apps).
The LAMP stack – Linux (operating system), Apache (web server), MySQL or MariaDB (database), and PHP (programming language) is an open source platform that allows developers to build dynamic websites and web applications using open-source software that run on the server side.
Other tech stacks that we work with are:
Swift is the programming language developed by Apple Inc., which is used to create iOS apps. It was designed with safety in mind and emphasizes efficiency over speed.
However, it’s important to understand how these different tools work together in order to create an effective application.
On one side, there are web applications. These are built using a language called HTML and CSS (cascading style sheets). They run on web browsers like Chrome or Safari. On the other side, there are mobile apps that run on smartphones and tablets. These are built using Swift for iOS and Java for Android respectively (though there are many other options). Finally, all of these languages need some kind of server-side language for processing requests—this is where LAMP stack comes in: Linux, Apache, MySQL, PHP/Python/Ruby.
