Technology Selection: Deciding what will work best for your Start-up

# OVERVIEW: As a start-up getting ready to kick-off development, you are free to select whichever technologies you want to use. Unfortunately, it becomes apparent very quickly that it is not as simple as go with what you know, like or fits your budget, but a lot of careful consideration needs to be given to what technologies will work well for your project in the long-run, what technologies play well together, open-source vs. proprietary, costs you can expect in long-run, scalability/performance/high-availability/ability to work with big-data/geared-for-cloud deployments/meets security needs...and so on...

Hear how Pavitra Saxena, Co-Founder and Technology Head of the very successful technology firm - Wooqer, made his choices when Wooqer started. What considerations he had to take into account in the realm of Java/JEE and Browser-Side technologies and how his technology choices have played out. And now that Wooqer has been in the market for many years and is being heavily used by almost entire apparel/accessories industry and many retail giants in India including biggies like Raymonds, Aditya Birla Group, Tata, Mahindra , Raymonds, ICICI , Max Lifestyle, Cafe Coffee Day, Nike to name a few  - where he had to revisit and change his initial selections, where he had to augment the components with another technology and where it was a plain disaster! You can learn from his experience and gain valuable insights/ideas on how to make the right technology selection for your requirements.
