Interview with Cuong Le – backend developer at Apiumhub

Top 3 lessons learned in Backend architecture

  • Object Oriented Programming (OOP)
  • Object Oriented Design (OOD)
  • Solid principal

List your TOP 5 backend frameworks and explain why

  1. Core

    For fans of microsoft technologies, secure, fast, cloud base, and cross-platform.

  2. *Spring boot *

    For fans of Java technologies, also fast, just take a little effort to build up the restful web service

  3. *Expressjs *

    If anyone works with frontend, they should know expressjs, at least to use it to build a mock server, it is simple, light-weight, easy to work with MongoDB to provide a REST API server.

  4. *Symfony *

  5. Laravel

    For fan of PHP, they will go with 2 above frameworks to build up backend architecture which reduce development, reputation, big community, open source, a lot of resource references, both are MVC architecture, …I could not compare each of them, the selection which one to use depends on the project and developer experience.

Why to use Java and Spring boot?

Development can start quickly, avoid complexibility xml configuration, reduce time consumed in development, all in one unit test, integration by default setup….

What are the top 3 challenges in backend development?

  • Scalability
  • Performance
  • Security

What is your software architecture strategy to achieve scalability?

Microservice is the good approach to build a scalability backend with high

performance, reliability + availability.

Event-driven architecture is one of implementation for microservice

architecture, and we can achieve microservice by applying event sourcing + cqrs

for our backend
