Cloud computing is a relatively new form of computing. Most IT industry professionals have heard about it and have likely even done some research on it. Advocates or not, they understand it well enough to make intelligent decisions about how to incorporate cloud computing into their IT strategy, if at all.
But one doesn’t have to be an IT professional to take an interest in cloud computing. In fact, if you run and operate a small business of any kind, then you should apprise yourself of the facts regarding cloud computing, and that includes programming languages.
Do the web-based programming languages operate well in a cloud environment? Yes, actually, they do. All of them.
When you move your business from a traditional computing environment to a cloud-based environment, you can be confident that your applications and programs will operate as they always did. The languages they were developed in will still be compatible in the cloud. That doesn’t mean you can expect everything to run smoothly and that there will be no transition issues. A good cloud consultant will anticipate your problems and work to find solutions before the problems develop.
Transitioning to a cloud-based computing environment should be done according to a plan that includes how to keep your applications and programs running continuously during the transition. Redeveloping into new languages is not necessary. You can count on your apps working like they always have.
