Yesterday I considered and initiated my migration to AWS. I’ve focused primarily on Microsoft technologies and Azure has worked very well in the past.
I have used Heroku (Scrabble stuff)
GAE (Scrabble Stuff)
I think I really like Scrabble.
I really like stability and consistency too. In that, I’ve failed somewhat at different stages and phases in life and now I see it a little more vividly, all things considered.
The feature shock in AWS initially made me a little cross-eyed as I hadn’t looked in a little while.
There is a LOT of options out there to get ANYTHING done. Don’t try to do it alone, and don’t try to force everyone to do it like you.
It took a lot of effort to get things so clear and I know the journey on that front won’t get easier. What I do know however is that I am not alone and now I have an amazing set of friends to help with completing the mission.
It was a pleasure talking to Charlie, from Amazon, yesterday, to clear up an authentication issue I had due to changing phones. It was a simple phone call but in the past, I chose to stick with what wasn’t broken when the “market recommendation” became more of a hindrance than true growth.
I’ll potentially be sticking with Azure for the time being given the time invested and the quality of the products I’ve used so far. Ease-of-use is good, but I like going with what aligns with the way I work, which is slightly different.
I’m forever thankful for all the investments made in my life thus far and I will make it my mission to repay in any way that I can.
