Thanks for the extensive list MakendranG. After reading the list, it feels a bit out of reach for me. As a software engineer I find it difficult to decide which platforms to try, what can be implemented and what could bring the most benefits.
Have you checked this roadmap by cloudflare? I think it's a more effective approach as it lists the steps to take and the complexity.
If you mix your extensive list and reaserch with that roadmap you could get a great guide or even ebook 😁
