Today for learning in public I write about amortisation and amortisation in the cloud, with examples and some funny analogies. Feedback is very welcome Evergreen article
Amortising is like spreading butter on a toast. You start by taking a big chunk of butter that covers only a little part of the bread and then you spread it over the full length of the bread. The quantity of butter is the same, but it is more useful over the length of the bread (and tastier, which is the important bit).
