If you're building a new web application, the problems that you run into generally fit into one of 4 categories:
1) Prototyping: I want to build something quickly.
2) Adapting: I want to be able to easily iterate on my code base.
3) Testing: I want to make sure that the app works.
4) Scaling: I want to utilize server resources efficiently.
