Which technology stack to use for car pooling over web and mobile
I want to start working on a project where I want to build a intranet website and Mobile app for people working in my office for Car Pooling. The basic idea is that if anyone is interested in looking for someone to carpool with should make a posting of going from A to B at time X.People can then reply to it.
I've narrowed down my option to Scala+Lift+MongoDB or Node.JS+Redis/MongoDB+HTML5. I don't know which one is better or worse for the problem I have mentioned. Also looking at developing mobile apps for the same application where people can send carpool request over their phones.Looking for a stack which can complement the mobile development also.
I know there are various solutions for this, but I'm looking to learn something new and exciting and have fun while developing it.
The only requirement that influences the Technology Stack is "looking to learn something new and exciting and have fun while developing it" (just as broofa said).
- Yes it is more marketable
- Yes there are way more people that know it.
- Yes you'll need it any way.
Scala on the other hand combines functional and object oriented in an extremely interesting way. It has a strong type system which enables tricks that probably will make your head spin.
And even if you don't use the really fancy stuff you have a super powerful language to work with.
So if you want to learn: Go with Scala
