Java developer at work

Java

Java is one of the most popular and powerful backend languages, used widely by multi-billion-dollar enterprises around the globe. It’s been used and developed for over 25 years now, which makes it rich in open-source libraries, frameworks, and other community resources. Therefore, it is considered one of the most secure and reliable among backend programming languages, and works equally well in client-side and server-side applications.

Node.js

Younger than Java, Node.js is eagerly used both by startups and large enterprises. It is an excellent backend choice for building fast, scalable business applications. As with Java, a lively community makes Node.js resources dependable and up to date with the latest tech standards. One of the biggest advantages of using Node.js as a backend language is the impressive development speed, which can significantly reduce your app’s time-to-market. Node.js apps are also known for their high efficiency, enhanced performance and easy scalability.

Kotlin developer at work

Kotlin

Constantly growing in popularity, Kotlin for backend is one of the relatively new programming languages that has managed to gain excellent community support in a short time. Kotlin offers full compatibility with Java and its ecosystem, which means it will work well if you have an existing Java tech stack. At the same time, Kotlin holds the advantage of being more concise and allowing backend developers to write much less code that they would in Java. All in all, Kotlin is known for powerful, scalable server-side applications.

Why do I need backend development services?

Two users with tablet and mobile device

Backend mobile app development services

The frontend of your mobile app is what your users see and directly interact with on their devices. Backend applications, on the other hand, run on servers. They receive requests and prepare data which is transmitted back to users’ devices. Things such as user authentication, push notifications, content management and data storage are typically handled by the backend application. Depending on your app’s size and complexity, the backend of your app could be just a small service, or an advanced solution. Our team investigates your needs and the scope of your project, then advises you on the best backend solution in your case.

Backend web app development services

Like mobile applications, web applications need backend services for stable and secure performance. While frontend development refers to the client side of your application, website backend applications are responsible for the server side of your product, implementing business logic of your product. Choosing the right backend technology might be tricky, and that’s why we analyse your expectations and your app’s scope to recommend a backend solution suited to your needs.

How to choose the right backend technology for your app

Time to market

If you’re developing an app that needs to be delivered as quickly as possible, it’s smart to go for Node.js. This framework is known to be fast, efficient, and flexible, working smoothly even in data-packed apps that need to run across various devices. On the other hand, both Java and Kotlin offer a range of frameworks that facilitate code writing for developers, and, as a result, speed up the process.

Dependability

The type system implemented in Go and a built-in code analysis tool allow for eliminating entire classes of application bugs at the early stages of development. Therefore, if you’re searching for extra security and app dependability, Golang might be the right choice for you. Thanks to large community support, Java would also be a safe pick here.

App complexity

Looking to create an enterprise application with a complex architecture? Java will remain the safe choice here. Multi-threaded processing makes Java a great choice for large-scale apps that need to serve thousands of users, process a number of complex business operations at once and scale dynamically.

Scalability

Compared to other backend technologies, Golang is known for its exceptional ability to support concurrency. Thanks to that, it will be a good choice if you expect your business and your user numbers to grow rapidly and need an easily scalable solution. Node.js and Kotlin would also be good choices here.

Modernity

Both Kotlin and Golang fit the requirements of modern development standards. They are the most progressive of the group, created with principles of clarity and simplicity in mind. They offer a variety of mechanisms that facilitate code writing and testing.

Community support

If you’re searching for a verified solution, consider using Java for back end development services. As one of the most popular programming languages in the world, Java offers strong community support and a large amount of open-source resources.

Understanding your idea and needs

First things first! We identify the scope of your project and take our time to understand your business needs. This includes discussing the potential features and the complexity of your app. Thanks to this, we can identify technical solutions required to support your idea, decide on the tech stack and estimate the development time. At the end of this phase, we can give you a general development quotation and schedule.

Preparing the ground for development

We want to make sure your idea turns into a huge success. To help you choose the best strategy and sharpen your vision, we’ve put together sessions of strategy, data or product workshops, all profiled to fit your needs.
We also take extra time to review the tech requirements and spot possible obstacles down the road. At the end of this phase, we’ve gathered development requirements, and prepared the basic documentation of the project.

Bringing your application idea into reality

Time to get to work! This is where we set up the backend architecture of your app. This is also where we complete the designs and implement the frontend side of your application. The length of this phase depends on the app size and complexity. It usually takes us 3 months to create a fully-functional MVP – that is, a minimum viable product ready to be released to the market.

Introducing your product to the market

Time to shine! As soon as your product is finished, we take care of the deployment and release. Timing is crucial here—we make sure that every individual part of the system is released on schedule and works perfectly, without any downtime. If it’s a mobile app, we take care of the app store listings as well. Once your application is live, we provide ongoing support.

Taking care of your product

At Miquido, we pride ourselves in building long-lasting partnerships with our clients. If you decide that your app needs extra features, changes or enhancements – great! We start working right away, all the while supporting the existing version. However, if you decide you want to transfer the project to your in-house team, we help you plan the process and make sure it goes smoothly.

How do I choose the right backend technology for my app?

Each backend language has its own benefits and limitations, and there is no universal recipe that would be perfect for every possible project. As always, it depends on your business needs and expectations. However, choosing the right backend tech stack is one of the most important decisions during your project’s course. It directly affects the way your app is going to work: its performance, security or stability, and can therefore influence your success.
However, the right software development company should carefully study the realities of your project and advise you on the right backend technology. To make the decision-making process easier, try asking yourself these questions first:

  • What is my budget?
  • What is the planned scope of my app?
  • How many users is it going to serve?
  • How much time do I have to develop it? </li?
  • What are my app benchmarks?

How long does it take to create the backend of an application?

The time required for backend development is a highly individual matter for each project process, as it is influenced by factors such as the complexity of the application, technical requirements or the size of the team.
However, for a simple backend, a single developer could build it within a few days or a week . It could take several weeks or months to make for more complex backends that require advanced features such as integrations with third-party systems, complex data processing, and scalability.
In addition to the development time, other factors, such as testing and deployment, can also impact the overall timeframe for building a backend. It is also worth remembering that after the development phase, it is crucial to thoroughly test the backend to ensure it functions correctly and can handle the expected load, which could take several additional weeks.

How much do backend development services cost?

Giving an exact figure for backend development services is a complicated matter, as many factors contribute to the total cost:

  • App’s complexity: A simple backend with a basic database structure may cost less than a complex backend with advanced features such as real-time data processing or third-party integrations.
  • The technology chosen: The price discrepancy between the technologies may result from the fact that some tools are more expensive than others, and the licensing cost may be passed onto the client.
  • The development team’s country of origin: This is directly related to the hourly wages of employees, which are higher in the USA, for example, compared to European countries.

However, as a general guideline, the cost of backend development services can range from a few thousand dollars for a basic backend to several hundred thousand dollars for a complex backend with advanced features. The best way to determine the cost of backend development services is to consult with a development team and provide them with the project’s specific requirements and scope.

What is backend API?

API stands for Application Programming Interface, and, generally speaking, it is a software that allows applications to “communicate” with each other. Let’s take a web application as our example. What you see and interact with is the frontend of the web application. On the other hand, data management, processing, and generally, business logic of the application happens on the backend side. Whenever you perform an action on the website (that is, interact with the frontend side), like filling out a form or placing an order, it is the API that actually “communicates” your action to the backend. Once the backend is done processing your “order”, the API brings the result back to you.
API is an interface used by a mobile or web application to communicate with the backend. For example, imagine that you are planning to develop a web application, and then maybe expand your business in the future by developing the same app for Android and iOS. Each one of these apps would require communication with the backend through the API. Moreover, you would be able to re-use the same business logic between various platforms and devices. This will allow you to save time and money, as your future solutions are all built on the same, shared backend architecture.

What are the most popular languages used for backend development?

The choice of technology is often related to the type of industry or the technological requirements of the project. However, there are several most commonly used languages for backend development:

  • Java: It is a versatile language used for enterprise-level backend development. Java offers excellent performance, scalability, and security, making it a popular choice for building mission-critical applications. Java’s extensive ecosystem includes numerous frameworks like Spring, Hibernate, and Struts, simplifying web development and making it faster and more efficient.
  • Golang: Also known as Go, it is a modern language for backend development, known for its simplicity, concurrency, and high-performance capabilities. It’s ideal for building microservices and web applications, and its concurrency features make it an excellent choice for building real-time applications. Golang has a growing community with numerous frameworks and libraries like Gin or Echo.
  • Python: It is a widely used language for backend development, known for its readability and ease of use. Python offers many frameworks, such as Django, Flask, Pyramid, and Bottle, making web development fast and efficient. Python is versatile and can be used for various applications such as data analysis, machine learning, and scientific computing.
  • PHP: It is another popular language for backend development, mainly used in web development. It’s known for its simplicity and ease of use and has a vast community and numerous frameworks, including Laravel, Symfony, and CodeIgniter. PHP is often used with popular databases like MySQL and PostgreSQL, making it an excellent choice for building scalable web applications.
