Decision at Loanlink Gmbh about HTML5, Vue.js, Google Drive, MailChimp, Zapier, Trello, GitHub, React, Node.js, .NET, AngularJS, Rails

When starting a new company and building a new product w/ limited engineering we chose to optimize for expertise and rapid development, landing on Rails API, w/ AngularJS on the front.

The reality is that we're building a CRUD app, so we considered going w/ vanilla Rails MVC to optimize velocity early on (it may not be sexy, but it gets the job done). Instead, we opted to split the codebase to allow for a richer front-end experience, focus on skill specificity when hiring, and give us the flexibility to be consumed by multiple clients in the future.

We also considered .NET core or Node.js for the API layer, and React on the front-end, but our experiences dealing with mature Node APIs and the rapid-fire changes that comes with state management in React-land put us off, given our level of experience with those tools.

We're using GitHub and Trello to track issues and projects, and a plethora of other tools to help the operational team, like Zapier, MailChimp, Google Drive with some basic Vue.js & HTML5 apps for smaller internal-facing web projects.

Decision at mkdev about G Suite, GitLab, Rollbar, Stripe, MailChimp, Intercom, Basecamp, Slack, Trello

As a small startup we are very conscious about picking up the tools we use to run the project. After suffering with a mess of using at the same time Trello , Slack , Telegram and what not, we arrived at a small set of tools that cover all our current needs. For product management, file sharing, team communication etc we chose Basecamp and couldn't be more happy about it. For Customer Support and Sales Intercom works amazingly well. We are using MailChimp for email marketing since over 4 years and it still covers all our needs. Then on payment side combination of Stripe and Octobat helps us to process all the payments and generate compliant invoices. On techie side we use Rollbar and GitLab (for both code and CI). For corporate email we picked G Suite. That all costs us in total around 300$ a month, which is quite okay.

Decision at StackShare about MailChimp, SendGrid

We use SendGrid for the weekly newsletters. It is a great tool and as far as I know, it has pretty much all of the features MailChimp has.

The code editor is great. It has code & tag completion, error flagging, scroll syncing, as well as syntax highlighting.

I wish they had a "remember this device" option for their Two-Factor Authentication. Sure it's more secure but can be inconvenient at times.

At there are two kinds of mailing that I send.

  1. Important system emails.
  2. News and updates.

I send the important emails using Mailgun, and news and updates using MailChimp.

For managing your mailing list, and sending occasional newsletters, MailChimp is the best. MailChimp
