comment What are the steps in beginning a large project, when all I have is a big idea?
That's about coding, but it's not engineering, and doesn't work beyond a certain scale. Instead, you need to do something starting from user stories or requirements or some kind of specification; those will help you chose your implementation technology for a start. 'write some stories', 'order your stories' are the first two steps, version control comes before any code, and the first story is always 'research implementation technologies' (which is a lot more than 'pick a language').
