I’ve been a full-time software engineer for over 4 years now, which places me somewhere in the scale of mid-level developer, I think.
I’ve worked with frameworks such as Laravel, Flask and Vue.js. And in my spare time I’ve also spent a lot of time learning
technologies that really interest me. I really like learning about Serverless technologies and emerging tech such as Astro.
The 2023 Stack
My tech stack of choice for 2023 is:
Python - I’ll be writing all my APIs and server side logic in Python as since I moved to it last year I’ve completely fallen in love with it
AWS SAM - which I’ll be using to build and deploy serverless APIs on AWS
Vue.js - the GOAT of the front-end for me. I’ve been using it for over 4 years and have never imagined using anything else
Vite - the build tool we all need. Fast, simple and it just works, the perfect tool for building Vue.js projects
TailwindCSS - I’ve been using it for a couple of years now since before version 1 and have found myself in such a productive state with it, that it’s used in all my projects
Astro - this one is fairly new to me, and I’ll be using it to build blogs like this one and landing pages that really need to just be static with a sprinkle of JS
PostgreSQL - my database of choice, powerful, fast and very close to the full SQL spec
I’ve set myself a goal of building and launching six projects this year and the tech stack above is what I’ll be using for every project.
At the end of the year I plan to write a summary of this tech stack, how it went for me and what I’ll be carrying on with into 2024.
