While I've mostly enjoyed reading this book and gained valuable insight, there are some negatives about it.
What I didn't like about the book:
* Lots of empty pages
* Lots of repetition, I don't need to be reminded of Author's full title at this and that company with every chapter.
* Repetition of content (most likely due to blog posts being adapted for print)
* Graphics are unusable, I had to google original blog posts to use them
* This book could have been made a third smaller, deliver the same information and save some of the reader's time
It's slightly wounding to the ego when those points are only at best a third of Stephen's book!
Any form of replatforming is guaranteed to be an 'entertaining' process, full of 'learning experiences' and many late nights with coffee and pizza to keep you going, If you add in a totally new, and radically different technology platform, these issues are going to be amplified significantly.
Here's the thing though, Cloud platforms are the future of the vast majority of IT programs, sticking your head in the sand will only delay the inevitable and ensure that your company is not just on the back foot, but also has a concrete overshoe.
Irrespective of the platform you choose, this book provides an excellent framework to base your approach to any migration, be it startup or multi-billion enterprise.
NB Though others have commented that much of the content is available in blogs obtainable foc, I found it very useful to have in one place (on my Kindle).
As a non-tech myself, what I previously thought complex is broken down into clear, digestible terms to give a good basis and understanding of cloud computing, its importance shaping the future of business and how AWS have taken the lead in this space.
Great use of anecdotes and examples of companies that have already adopted AWS.
Highly recommend for both business decision makers and anyone working in the cloud! :)
