Hi, 2 friends and I really want to develop an app with real time info
It will be a geolocalisation application.
App will send the position to the database, store it, and get calculations on it if needed.
John is at position A (time= 0s)
John is now at position B (time=10)
we want to calculate the speed
We have problems to figure out which backend we should use.
This is our first idea for the back end:
MySQL to create the database
Python to manage the database (like doing those speed calculations)
We wan’t to be able to scale but code the app the fastest as possible.
The application will have a level system.
A little social network (that will come later).
A profile picture.
2 of our team are new to programming ( 1 month experience) but we are good learners and like challenges.
Should we use python or another language(node.js)?
We would love to have our own database and not something like firebase, although we are are scared for being hacked so any advice would be great .
If I am wrong in my concepts could you please redirect me :)?
