Perfectly said but, when you are giving away the keys you are trusting your cloud provider 100%.

When your boss asks you, are we 100% sure that we can trust the cloud what would you say?

The government/hacker group can come to your cloud provider and shut you down base on something done without warning. Usually done by one of your employees, or the cloud provider employees. Probably they were hosting something illegal/controversial in your cloud space without you knowing. How do you recover? How do you setup gigabytes of data and code on another server in a short time?

So true.

When working on a new project I set the objectives and the architecture and then force my way through looking how to design and implement it.
Sometimes is PHP, sometimes is Java but I know when something has to work and I just research/google the missing part.

Keeping an open mind and making the right design decisions comes with experience.

Comment If you are a procedural programmer... (Score 1) 388

Amazingly there are a lot of procedural programers out there that still have to bend their minds around Object Oriented Development.
You can take the courses for java, C# and other OOP languages but you will be left wondering why all the trouble to apparently do the same thing.

You need to read "Object-oriented Software Construction" by Bertrand Meyer
Written at the beginning of the OO methodologies (circa 1998)

It was required reading when I was in University and many concepts he explains in his book are very valid today.
