After the initial days where websites were static pages, the internet quickly moved to rendering dynamic data based on the user requests. This led to the rise of various languages and serverside components. FPM i.e. FastCGI Process Manager is a serverside component that allows the web server to render dynamic webpage in a fast and scalable way with quite a few advanced techniques.
At first, I was baffled when I heard about SPA i.e. Single Page Application. I was like – huh – who builds a one-page website these days. But after reading up further, I realized SPA is a very sophisticated way to build web applications that are fast and consume lower bandwidth.
Scala was designed to be better Java and has lived up to that expectation. It came from academia, which likes to experiment with some cool features of functional programming and mixing paradigms. While Scala has been popular, another language which is based on Java uses JVM and is compatible with Java has gained attention in recent years – Kotlin. It was officially supported by Google in Android Studio 3.0 (Oct 2017)
