[using 上手 to describe something that you are proficient at is a bit pretentious/smug and should be avoided・とくい should be used instead]

[のが上手 is a set phrase・While verb + の / verb + こと are both used for nominalization, you would normally not use ことが with 上手]

[Another exception where you wouldn't use こと in place of の: のが下手]
