comment I want to learn and explore cloud computing, what technologies should I be aware off for the same?
@TMN: I am aware of that, but it's not possible to get a deep understanding of all AWS offerings unless you can actually use and tune them in a production environment, with real systems with users. That is why I mentioned the job aspect.

comment Well documented open source projects to study for a beginner?
Some of these are in C - aosabook.org/en/index.html . But these are architectural views, so these will give you a high level overview, not code level.

comment Sr. Dev made a database I disagree with. Advice sought
-1. As others have pointed out, denormalization is a common technique for optimizing reporting databases. I don't think it's possible to answer the OP's question without knowing what the database will be used for.

comment Does craftsmanship pay off?
If you are in a startup trying to launch a new product fast (and survive), you have to build things fast. This speed is often touted as the enemy of quality. But it's only true if you have people who don't appreciate good code. If your team members are people who strongly understand these practices, know exactly how much technical debt to incur and make the right tradeoffs, then you have a chance of building a stable, 'good' codebase even while trying to ship fast. If they are not, you cannot teach them and launch a startup at the same time. Sad, but true.

comment Book on Information Technology Concepts for Developer
@jqueryrocks: The "Beautiful Series" does have great content, but they are mostly a collection of essays, interviews and articles. I think the OP is looking for books which explain concepts in a given area in a systematic manner.
