Hi, I've built e-commerce apps as well as worked on features in marketplaces.
If you wish start from scratch and are looking to build an MVP (minimum viable product), I would strongly suggest building it in Ruby on Rails. The application can be developed very quickly. Most of the time gets spent in non-code related tasks including figuring out the features that you are looking for, understanding how your users like the features and what they expect, understanding if you users will need the features and the application that you are offering. Market research and UX exercises will help answer these questions.
Once there is a roadmap, the coding part is not that complicated. If you would like to know more, feel free to get in touch. :)
I've been a Ruby developer for many years, and I can honestly tell you that there is no specific gadget that I've always been in love with. That said, I do have a few requirements to work properly including: my Macbook, multiple monitors, decent headphones and mic since I work remotely. I recently bought a mechanical keyboard purely because I love the sound of it.
Was this what you were asking about? Feel free to get back if I haven't answered your questions properly. :)
Hi. I am a software developer who general does a fair amount of web-scraping and API development. In this particular case, I would suggest doing 2 things. First, it might be worth checking if the company has a public API as scraping is generally forbidden and included in the terms of service.
In the case of Instagram, they do have an API which can be used to retrieve information about public users. The process is a bit long, but there are clear instructions on the Meta API documentation page. You can check this link for more information related to your specific request.
If you have more, questions, please feel free to get in touch.
