comment Is it reasonable to NOT provide technical documentation and unit tests to client?
If they only have a use license, then I don't think you need to be providing this information. They shouldn't be modifying your code either if they only have a usage license and not ownership of the code or license to modify it on their own.

comment Confusion about dual license (MIT/GPL) javascript for use on my website
You should definitely not do 3. That would be willful copyright infringement and could get you in a lot more trouble than 1 or 2 ever would.

comment How to slowly release a web application to more and more users so that too many concurrent users don't crash your site?
My experience with low cost plans is they don't support more than a few concurrent users. Either your site won't go anywhere and you won't be out much money, or you will jump to that higher tier and start paying incrementally more based on volume. I hope you have a revenue plan that scales along with your numbers growth.

I have been programming for 20 years now actually and COBOL predates my experience quite a bit.

comment Building a web app with encrypted MySQL database entries?
@LucFranken multiple databases is a horrendous idea and really doesn't offer any additional security. The security point is going to be the layer above the database.

Not always an option. Sometimes you have family needs etc. that require you to stay employed while looking.

comment Deploy PHP project without giving away the source code?
He wouldn't be worried about source code access if this was SAAS. It sounds like they deliver code to the client and they set it up and run it on their own networks. Likely some business tool that runs on an intranet or something.

comment Why is MongoDb popular with Node.js?
Just speaking from experience. While it is not necessarily the case all the time, larger projects with wide scope and features are more likely to use a relational database as their primary store. I think this has more to do with the nature of the data in these systems than it does with any shortcomings or strengths in the technologies between relational and nosql databases. Larger systems are more likely to deal with structured data that is better suited to a relational database (think enterprise systems with well defined structures and rules).
