We use Docker for setting up our development environment. Docker is a tool used for creating containers. Containers allow a developer to package up an application with all of the parts it needs, such as libraries and other dependencies, and ship it all out as one package. By doing so, thanks to the container, the developer can rest assured that the application will run on any other Linux machine regardless of any customized settings that machine might have that could differ from the machine used for writing and testing the code.
Most of our back-ends are made using Laravel. Laravel is an open-source framework which uses a model-view-controller pattern, and it is based on Symfony components. It is currently one of the most widely used frameworks in the market, and its communityis growing day byday. It allows us to write clean, scalable code, and to reduce the complexity when working in huge projects.
