Hi All

I am currently working on preparing a multi-tenant app with one database per tenant. The app will have data analytics dashboards, CRM, and task management modules. Originally my thoughts were to build with Angular, Laravel, and MySQL, as the development team mainly consists of PHP developers.

However, the team is recommending to develop the app entirely using WordPress by utilizing a multisite model, saying that it will not have any impact on performance even as the user base increases.

My own take is that this will have a negative impact on performance. Can you please advise me if this is true?

I want to create a video sharing service like Youtube, which users can use to upload and watch videos. I prefer to use Vue.js for front-end. What do you suggest for the back-end? Node.js or Laravel ( PHP ) I need a good performance with high speed, and the most important thing is the ability to handle user's requests if the site's traffic increases. I want to create an algorithm that users who watch others videos earn points (randomly but in clear context) If you have anything else to improve, please let me know. For eg: If you prefer React to Vue.js. Thanks in advance

Developing a managed multivendor marketplace mobile app to enable users to buy and sell (mainly used hardware) products from the same app, allowing buyers to checkout and purchase an entire listing at either the set "buy now" price or "make offer" to buy at a negotiated price with the seller. Please share your opinion on my current choice Flutter + Laravel (with MySQL) and are there more feasible alternatives?

I'm working in a company as a software engineer, Mainly we are focusing on PHP as the product is being developed in PHP (native) also there are a few products in Node.js, I tried to introduce Laravel but there is no luck to work on it. Now I have started learning Go language, should I focus more on Go or continue only with PHP and NodeJS. BTW I know PHP and NodeJS very well.
