Tech Stacks: What they reveal and what they conceal

Don’t judge software by its tech stack alone

What the tech stack does not reveal is how the problem is being solved. Teams take clever approaches to architect software for scale, for extensibility, for performance, for fault tolerance. By itself, the tech stack does not provide insights into these.

Tech stacks for architectural analysis

When we engage with a client, we spend quite some time thinking about what are the objectives the client is trying to solve, in the immediate future but also in the longer term. We pick a stack that is most likely to minimize technical debt for the long term.
