Where Do I Want To Go?


The many, many people offering advice all normally say the same thing;

Where do you want to go? Anywhere but here.
What companies or industries do you want to work for? Those listed in this post.
What do you want to do with your skills? Can you believe it, they are also listed in this post!

I just thought about talking about it. I'm not here to make 100k a year, that comes with too much responsibility, and my mental well-being is not worth sacrificing for your profit.

Simply put, here are three industries I would like to work in.




Hospitality

Hotels and resorts are busy places, and most of them in the Orlando area are either trying to help you save some coin, or give you a premium experience like Loews Luxury Hotels that also engage you with the local lifestyle and events.

IT support in hospitality is a huge field; It goes from making sure every room has a decent Wi-Fi connection (Or an Ethernet port available to a secure wired network, if that's your sort of thing), to making sure things like Disney World or Disney Land's virtual FastPasses and Magic Bands work to make your pockets lighter (in more ways than one) and your trip easier.


Supporting the efforts of Higher Education

While I still strongly believe that many avenues involving college are a serious waste for the individual, enough people still believe in that, and it's a far more relaxed atmosphere for learning - and learning for learning's sake should not be discouraged. Colleges are also a good place for creative ideas, the kind that grow into million-dollar startups.

There is no honor in supporting people wasting their time and health chasing paper, but there is in encouraging people to think outside of the box.

Banking Tech

Money is easy to spend and harder to gain.

While the age of sliding your card at a machine are not quite gone, Square is bringing all the old-school complexity of small businesses taking payments into a sleek set of terminals. Small businesses have to pay quite a lot to credit card companies to be able to take payments from them - Not doing so costs them a lot of business, because nearly everyone is using a card!

Visa is making efforts to make digital payments even more secure through every step of the payments ecosystem with a new Token service.

I like Banking Tech because if you make people feel fancy, high tech, and sophisticated when spending money, they'll spend more. And isn't that what we're aiming for, taking people's money? Don't lie, yes it is.

Connecting IoT Devices to a Registration Server (Packet Tracer, Cisco)

In Packet Tracer, a demo software made by Cisco Systems. It certainly has changed a lot since 2016. It's almost an Olympic feat to even get started with it now, but it does look snazzy. This is for the new CCNA, that integrates, among other things, IoT and Automation, which I've worked on here before. Instructions here . I don't know if this is an aspect of "Let's make sure people are paying attention and not simply following blindly", or an oversight - The instructions indicate a Meraki Server, when a regular one is the working option here. I have to enable the IoT service on this server. Also, we assign the server an IPv4 address from a DHCP pool instead of giving it a static one. For something that handles our IoT business, perhaps that's safer; Getting a new IPv4 address every week or so is a minimal step against an intruder, but it is a step. There are no devices associated with this new server; In an earlier lab (not shown), I attached them to 'H

Using Terraform and AWS Cloud9

Wanted to try Cloud9 but didn't feel like making an EC2 instance in the GUI. So I made a Terraform file instead, remade a default VPC, and it took 20 minutes of troubleshooting. #AWS — Morgan (@runtcpip) February 1, 2022     👉🏾 Find the Notion page of this post here , if it's easier for you. It certainly looks nicer!   Setup: An EC2 instance A reference to the default VPC, which I had to remake, as I had deleted mine.    Downloading Terraform into Cloud9: Instructions here . Done and Done. Now, How About Using It? The kicker (or blessing) is that Cloud9 doesn't auto save, like I’ve set my VSCode up to do. Had to do a lot of manual saving, but it wasn’t a struggle. The lock file is created, but I don't see it in my file system to the left until resources have been pushed, so I made a simple bucket to try it out. Because this instance is attached to my AWS account, I suppose anything I make within this will be as well. Let's see! Does Every Terraform Command
