Backend Technologies - Reading Assignment


#21
  1. In a database

  2. Set up the database, write the server side code, optimize code to scale efficiently and handle high volumes of traffic, ensure database is secure.

  3. Combination of languages a developer uses to build a program or application.

  4. NodeJS

  5. Because the server side language is written in JavaScript which is also used for front-end development. One less language to have to learn!


#22
  1. How does a backend application normally store information?

any type of database will do

  1. Name a few things backend developers need to do.

write server codes in general, but mostly codes that would interact with databases and optimise codes to handle large volume of transactions

  1. What is a technology stack?

set of tools, like LAMP, that were integrated to come up with an web app

  1. Name a popular backend stack.

LAMP and modern frameworks like Node

  1. Why is NodeJS convenient for front-end developers who want to start programming backend?

since JS is language commonly used in frontend, its best to bring it also to server-side programming

  1. How does a backend application normally store information?
    It uses a data base as a service platform to store information.

  2. Name a few things backend developers need to do.
    Write server-side code,
    write code to interact with a database,
    ensure that server-side code is free from vulnerabilities, ensure the server-side code is optomized to handle large volumes of traffic,
    deploy code online so service can be used by everyone

  3. What is a technology stack?
    A group of backend server-side applications working together, LAMP
    L inux (opperating system)

How does a backend application normally store information?

In a database like MySQL, PostgreSQL, Microsoft SQL server, Mango DB, Maria DB, DB2, SAP HANA.

Name a few things backend developers need to do.

They should write backend code that is secure, sound, ensures that the server-side code can scale under load, utilise database effectively and all the required APIs.

What is a technology stack?

A technology stack is a combination of software products and programming languages used to create a web or mobile application. Applications have two software components: client-side and server-side, also known as front-end and back-end.

Name a popular backend stack.

A good source of technology stacks is Bitnami.com where you can download stacks such as: WAMP Windows OS, Apache, Open SSL and MySQL, for Linux there is LAMP and for Mac MAMP. This all comes under Bitnamis infrastructure containers. https://bitnami.com/

Why is NodeJS convenient for front-end developers who want to start programming backend?

With Javascript you only need to use or be skilled at Javascript to do both the front-end and back-end, this allows creative front-end web developers to do the whole project raising their value and input.


#36
  1. A backend app would store information through a database, usually in a server somewhere.

  2. Backend developers would - make databases
    - write server side code
    - ensure server side code is secure and optimized for high volume
    - “other stuff”

  3. …what Rorey said…

A Technology stack is all the different software (I think would be the term) components required to use from the client side to the server side required to make everything work. Kind of like a large ‘code sandwich’

  1. LAMP, (Not the Meme) , this ‘code sandwich’ aka stack as I prefer to call it, contains one needed component from each category required for the whole stack to function together.

  2. Convenient because it uses the same or similar language as a front end language to create back end stuff, so it eliminates the need to learn a new language.


#37
  1. How does a backend application normally store information?
    Database
  2. Name a few things backend developers need to do.
    Write server code
    Secure the code
    Develop API
    Make sure backend can handle the volume of traffic
  3. What is a technology stack?
    Combining languages to enable interaction between them.
  4. Name a popular backend stack.
    Example LAMP: Linux, Apache,MtSQL and PHP.
  5. Why is NodeJS convenient for front-end developers who want to start programming backend?
    Enables frontend and backend code to be written in the same language (Javascript)

#38
  1. How does a backend application normally store information?
    It stores information in a database.
  2. Name a few things backend developers need to do.
    Backend developers write server-side code, write code that interacts with databases, and deploys code on-line for others to use.
  3. What is a technology stack?
    A technology stack is a combination of software products and programming languages used to create a web or mobile application.
  4. Name a popular backend stack.
    LAMP is a classic and popular backend stack.
  5. Why is NodeJS convenient for front-end developers who want to start programming backend?
    Since Javascript is already used on the client-side, you only use a single language over your whole application.

#39
  1. How does a backend application normally store information?
    Information is stored in a database
  2. Name a few things backend developers need to do.
    Backend developers protect the backend code to insure the code is not compromised, backend developers also deploy the code used on a site and optimize said code to handle large amounts of traffic.
  3. What is a technology stack?
    A technology stack is the complete set of technologies and languages used to write backend code.
  4. Name a popular backend stack.
    LAMP is a popular backend stack.
  5. Why is NodeJS convenient for front-end developers who want to start programming backend?
    NodeJS is convenient because it is the corresponding framework for JavaScript. Since JavaScript is so popular for front-end development, NodeJS makes an easy transition for those looking to move from front development to backend development in the same language.

#40
  1. usually in the database
  2. Make sure that the operation systems interacts properly with the server and the data base
  3. when several components of the systems are put to work together
  4. Django and LAMP, Flask
