comment Test Doubles : Do they go in “source packages” or “test packages”?
Thanks for that. I won't be needing the software to run in demo mode, and will simply just fake the methods which actually returns entities. The ones doing Create, Update and Delete operations will just be empty implementations. I'll be the only one using them, so I'll simply just put the in my test sources. Thanks!

comment What would be a good “umbrella” term for HTML, CSS, SQL, JavaScript and the like?
yes..."and the like" was aimed at PHP etc. Maybe the term "technologies" is the only think they all can be described with...

comment Is it a good idea to use a kitchen-sink server for various services?
Good points here. I'd like to stress that backups of the various services not should be forgotten. You could also set up multiple virtual servers on the same hardware which allows you to both separate services and make regular snapshots in case something goes wrong.

comment Solo developer vs. team developer : should I move on?
I appreciate all the answers and input that has come across. I think what JeffO writes sums things up quite well : there are no guarantees in life (the grass is not always greener on the other side), but be on the look for better opportunities once you start to feel that time has come to move on...

Thanks for your comment! I hope you had a large garden to spend the 6.5 hours remaining after the "[...] maybe 1 hour/day averaged [...]" of daily work :-). Anyway; thanks for sharing your own experience; I do see myself in what you describe from start.

comment Solo developer vs. team developer : should I move on?
looking at it from a long term perspective, it probably makes sense to shift more towards more "abstract" positions with age. When I turn 60 (in 30 years) i probably will not have a chance in competition with newly educated developers...so it might make sense at some point to shift towards something like a technical leadership role. And; that would be where team experience comes in...

Money is not really a big part of my concern. It is more about learning and developing personal skills. I've never worked in a team, only as a lone developer, so I see your point about getting into a team.
