What's taking most of my time?
So I have decided to restart my development activities that I hadn't used much recently... I decided to stick to a aPaaS and Cloud Computing pattern that allows me do Rapid Application Development (RAD) and to offer to my clients access to a native PaaS model to help reduce IT costs and complexity.
I created my Company and have started working for a few customers with great success!
