Okay, thanks! I've heard about the play framework - mostly rants though. Still, I'll have to check those technologies out to see what they do and how they work. Thank you for the input!
No worries, hope you'll have fun learning about these different approaches. I sure did :)
Apart from frameworks or stacks, another completely different paradigm that I think you might find interesting is eventually consistent systems using EventSourcing + CQRS (Command Query Responsibility Segregation).
It's completely different (and overkill for most use cases), but it shifts your mindset from behaviours of an object to event-driven... Which, I think how things happens in real life, ie. we respond to events.
We're a place where coders share, stay up-to-date and grow their careers.
We strive for transparency and don't collect excess data.
