  • How do you decide which language/tech stack you invest learning?
    3 projects | | 14 Aug 2022
    Your question is interesting to me. As a software architect, I study various tech stacks and programming languages. I concentrate mostly on open source and microservice architectures. I usually start with implementing the same feature identical rudimentary news feed microservice. Over time you start to see the similarities and differences between the various implementations. I blog about this over at and the source code can be found in

    You are looking for a decision on what programming language and tech stack to learn next based on career mobility. Here are some questions to consider.

    What kind of company are you most interested in working for? Think about the size of the company. Is it in a growth market or is profitability more important? Is it a technology company? Does the CEO view technology as a profit center or a cost center? Do they have a CTO? If they do, then who does the CTO report to, the CEO, the CIO, or the COO?

    What kinds of programming languages and tech stacks are on the career pages for the kinds of companies that you are most interested in? Different kinds of companies tend to cluster around different tech stacks. There are other factors to filter for such as how deeply do they embrace remote work or commute distance to where you currently live or are willing to move to.

    These are lagging indicators. They are going to be more accurate than leading indicators but that also might indicate that whatever you learn next based on these factors might have a shorter shelf life.

    Finally, you should ask yourself what about your current programming language do you like? Try to pick something that you would also like. The Go programming language was originally invented as a better C and is enjoying some marketability right now. Maybe that would be something to look at.

  • Clojure needs a Rails, but not for the reason you think
    24 projects | | 30 Jul 2022
    I have a github repo where I implement a feature identical microservice in various tech stacks. I started that repo with a Clojure version that used community provided wrappers. See as an example of calling Cassandra. Recently, I added another implementation with Clojure that just called the Java drivers directly. See for that version of the same call. In the end, I decided to forego wrappers and make the calls directly because you end up with fewer dependencies and are more likely to be able to use latest versions of everything.
  • Ask HN: What tech stack would you use to build a new web app today?
    6 projects | | 20 Dec 2021
    I have been exposed to many different tech stacks over the years. This repo contains the code used to evaluate thirteen different stacks which is what I can share publicly. What I can say is that the best choice of tech stack depends on what is being called for. Is this for an early stage startup or an intrepreneurial greenfield project? Is this for an MVP or just the next component in an already formalized microservice architecture? What are the skillsets of the developers that you will have access to? Have you reached agreement that you can throw it all away and start over or are you expected to have to live with the choice of tech stack for the life of the product? Are you mobile first? These are all important questions that very much shape the decision.
