Both React's community and component library are far more robust than that of Vue. Not only that, but more companies seem to use React, so it only makes sense to learn it so that one can maximize their opportunity. I also love the way React forces you to think when designing things as it truly is OOP as its finest.

The interoperability and reliability of Shopify is simply unmatched on the market. Having been a web developer for a few years, I cannot imagine going with any other solutions because of the level of development that would need to go into each and every tweak requested by stakeholders.

Shopify makes it easy to use apps off the shelf to test an idea, after which you can replace it with a custom solution or build on top of it.

Using their robust API, array of webhooks, Shopify Flow and Shopify Scripts, with a little know-how anything you want to do is just a few clicks or lines of code away from reality. The community is also pretty robust, so if you ever need help, you're not alone.

Full disclosure: I've been invested since 2015, but it's because they really are the best on the market.

TwilioTwilio

Twilio is pretty much the go-to solution for SMS and Voice solutions for developers so it's kind of a no-brainer.

They provide tons of resources for you to learn and their customer service is great.

I've mostly used it for internal solutions, but feel confident using it in a customer-facing app at this point.

The cost is reasonable as well, so go for it!

We use this cleaning our list because sometimes we get hit by Spam-bots and it does a pretty good job of cleaning it up. If you're part of a small team and can't be bothered with doing such mundane work and/or your email marketing billing is based on the number of emails in your list, this is a good option for automatically pruning your list.

Not only is ReCharge more interoperable with Shopify services and apps, thereby reducing the amount of work required to implement it, but it's also more cost-effective than ChargeBee.

At least with regard to handling physical products, I find ReCharge to be superior and cleaner. Their customer service is kinder AND they even let you try them out for the first $100k worth of recurring revenue, so you can really get a feel for whether or not it will be a good tool for your organization in the long run.

If you use Shopify, sell physical goods, and have complex subscription needs, ya can't go wrong with ReCharge. Plus, the cost is reasonable, so give it a go!

If you're in the SaaS business, ChargeBee may be more appropriate though.

When it comes to workflow management and synchronizing tasks across different platforms, the last thing you want to use is Zapier. Although effective, it will certainly be far more expensive than if you abstract the process with Unito.

Why is that?

Because Zaps are extremely costly relative to the batched synchronization you get with Unito.

Not only that, but being purpose-built helps you keep your Zapier Dashboard a whole lot cleaner and focused on the integrations that would otherwise be laborious to manage and/or build.

I decided that the speed with which I need to move through email is far more important than the overlay of a CRM within my email client, and the team agreed with my decision. Superhuman really does an awesome job of making email easy, fast, and fun. Embarrassingly enough, I sometimes even find myself looking forward to my inbox so that I may interface with Superhuman. It really lives up to its name.

I cannot say enough good things about Hull. It's such an awesome platform that really enables you to do what seems like magic pretty quickly.

The ability to ingest, deduplicate, unify, and synchronize data across so many platforms is so easily done with this tool.

ANYTHING with an API can send data into Hull and be processed using their Processor app.

Goodbye customer data siloes, hello event-driven marketing and hyper-segmentation.

Really an amazing tool that I believe will be in many more organizations in the future. I feel lucky to have been able to familiarize myself with such an innovative tool in such an emerging industry.

Though a little expensive, if you have a good developer and marketing team, you'll see your ROI in no time at all.

More importantly, you'll have rich customer profiles that you would have never known were possible to create before.

Enjoy.

Before learning React (which is a JavaScript Library), you're going to want to learn drumroll JavaScript! After you become comfortable with JS, then you can move onto learning React as it will build upon your existing knowledge. This will enable you to build the front-end (user interface) of applications.

Following that, you'll want to learn Node.js, a run-time environment, for back-end, server-side development. This enables Unix network programming using JavaScript-based syntax.

(Optional) Learn TypeScript for the sake of static typing, which will enable you to catch errors in your code much sooner than you would otherwise. Here's a good link: https://medium.com/swlh/the-major-benefits-of-using-typescript-aa8553f5e2ed

Python is great for automating back-end processes within an organization as well as for data science when applied with Jupyter Notebooks.

I hope this helps!

Now this is a gem. It completely abstracts away the pain of developing and maintaining production-quality mobile apps and integrates your Shopify instance automatically. If you're a team that prefers to grow rather than manage your tech at such a low-level, this is a great option. Highly recommend.
