The Changing Nature of the Developer Thanks to Cloud Computing.

I came across this blog by Javier Soltero, the CEO of infrastructure player Hyperic. He raises some interesting points about dilemmas that cloud computing developers could face in the coming years.

Whether you’re relying on Amazon’s EC2 platform or Google, the very idea that a developer is relying solely or exclusively on a provider doesn’t remove the need for some degree of operation by the end user. In a cloud environment, that will include managing the end-user experience and supporting the continued development and customization of the application moving forward.

To that end, that’s why I think it’s so important we continue to see more and more initiatives such as the Open Cloud Manifesto. Cloud computing is going to change the way in which developers interact with software vendors, and more specifically, change their roles from that of simply developing to that of operating and management as well.
