Our default RDBMS of choice is PostgreSQL because it is an astonishingly well executed piece of software. Reliability, stability, documentation, speed, ease of use are all there for us. While we don't have huge amounts of data to process, we still enjoy the excellent community and great tooling around Postgres. And the excellent query plan analyzer helps us troubleshoot bottlenecks fast. It also helps that Postgres is available as a hosted option with pretty much any hosting option we might be looking at.

It is not too hard to land on Git for version control nowadays. Although it doesn't have the best user experience or user interface the tooling around git has "won" and there is little reason to look at anything else.

Overall git is fast, has "cheap branches" and the tools and documentation around git make up for what is lost.

Since internalisation is a big topic here in lawpilots, we chose to use POEditor so we could delegate and separate the need for translations from the dev team efforts. Supporting more than 22 languages (and keeping at it, more languages are added frequently!), allowing 'automation' on our translations has been a huge help to us. POEditor providing us exactly that - using their web app we are able to provide access to colleagues outside the dev team and they are able to be manage existing or adding new languages autonomously. The integration with Bitbucket / github providing us PRs that we are able to review and approve easily.

A big part of our needs fits perfectly into what Django has to offer: an ORM with support for PostgreSQL , the amazing auto-generated admin interface, consolidated tooling around the application lifecycle and a well-established community with solutions to the majority of common problems.

We use Django whenever we need the auto-generated admin and the friendly templating language to build capable web applications which are relatively easy to maintain for a comparably long time. The excellent integrations for Celery and Django REST framework make it easy to build the necessary integrations with other services.
