We also prefer React and NextJS, and we use both Javascript and Typescript. We develop apps using React Native, Swift, and Java for hardware-specific solutions for other clients.For 

      For the back-end, we use serverless architecture and NodeJS to serve REST and GraphQL APIs. We also use Craft CMS, MySQL, Docker, and DatoCMS for hosting CMS solutions. We use several AWS products and infrastructure, including Elastic Beanstalk, Cloudfront RDS, DynamoDB, and Lambda. We also work with Terraform, CDK, and Serverless. For project builds, we use Github for our repositories and builds. We're proud to be a Vercel partner, too.
