    It is basically a platform for storing, sharing, and managing server access. But the most valuable part of it concerns the possibility to do an audit and to control the work performed on the server. Our platform can be integrated as an independent service in company infrastructure. It doesn’t change the way developers are used to working on the server, it changes the way they connect on it. All connections to servers are made through a single sign-on and private user access. All the actions performed on servers and in Werbot web interface are logged and recorded (screencasts). The server administrator can not only see what was done on the server by each user and when it was done but also can replay the whole working session in our player. The server audit is made much easier with Werbot. ...

I'm looking to develop a website. My current plan is to use ASP.NET Core 5 web api for backend and React for front end. But not long ago I hear of Next.js and that it is capable to have all backend inside Next.js. If so, is it still worth using .Net + React (or some other combination of frameworks).

For context, I currently use JavaScript (React) and Python (Flask) in my daily routine.

I need your help in choosing either Spring Boot or ASP.NET Core. Both frameworks seem to have mature ecosystems. I would like to hear your thoughts on the following points:

  • Difficulty level of both frameworks
  • Level of community support
  • Career prospects i.e do Spring based jobs pay more or vice versa
  • which one will be helpful if I decide to transition towards a more specialized field like data engineering.

I am asking this because it is something that I am also exploring in parallel. I know that Python and #SQL play a huge role in big data.

            I find I really like using GitHub because its issue tracker integrates really well into my project flow and the projects feature allows me to organize different efforts into boards. The automation features allow my issues to automatically progress through some states on the boards when I merge pull requests.

            My Python / Django app is deployed on Heroku with PostgreSQL database and uWSGI webserver.

            I use Gunicorn because does one thing - it’s a WSGI HTTP server - and it does it well. Deploy it quickly and easily, and let the rest of your stack do what the rest of your stack does well, wherever that may be.

            uWSGI “aims at developing a full stack for building hosting services” - if that’s a thing you need then ok, but I like the principle of doing one thing well, and I deploy to platforms like Heroku and AWS Elastic Beanstalk where the rest of the “hosting service” is provided and managed for me.
