I really like this article predicting that more development will move to full app-lifecycle platform services. Even if you don’t agree with it, it’s good food for thought. Imagine continuous deployment as a service with infrastructure you don’t have to worry about.

A very good read, but I wonder about the “savings to startups”. Yes, the startup would save the cost of developing the infrastructure to scale out for the cloud, but for a startup that cost comes during mass adoption—unlikely for their ‘startup’ days. I really like Heroku, but for my simple Rails service that sees 1000-2000 hits a day it isn’t really worth it. If you consider time is money, perhaps the equation tips in their favour.
Yeah I was thinking in terms of time, and also in developer “hat count” – in a startup you inevitably wear many hats, and fewer means more time focusing on what you’re good at. It helps bus count too.
