Over the last couple of years, New Relic has hired multiple graduates of various coding bootcamps and "non-traditional" backgrounds, including me! After I earned my Bachelor's degree, I was actually all set to attend medical school, when I got a job at Google in technical support.

If I had to choose only one of these services to go with, I'd likely choose Google because of their scope and size. As I said, photography backup and sharing is something that is now expected by users for free. Google seems to understand that and is giving away a generous plan to get started.

In Storyboards vs. NIBs vs. Code: The Great Debate! , you can watch a debate that took place in a Google+ hangout on October 1 between three developers over which way is the optimal way to build user interfaces. Cesare Rocchi argues for code, Tammy Coron takes the pro-nib argument, and Felipe Laso Marsetti sides with Storyboards, which Apple seems to be pushing hard. It's interesting lunchtime viewing:
