I host my own stuff on a vps that I rent, so I am already a big believer in "owning your platform". But I don't think this is always the wisest point.

My projects are rather small, and I plan to build a real business I might take care and actually use a managed platform just to not face hurdles in the beginning.

If the service succeeds and I can finance my time I would happily own my own platform. But stuff like databases is nice to have managed sometimes if you want to be able to go on vacation without worries.

Registration is open for Startup School 2019. Classes start July 22nd.
