The 5G Future (TechRepublic PDF)

 "Artificial intelligence is coming—home assistants, smart homes, smart cities, all of those things are becoming real. We used to be talking about it in the past and now you’re seeing it day to day."
 - Ana Tavares Lattibeaudiere

Addendum: 5G is not causing Coronavirus.

Here. Yep, gotta make an account to download it. It is fairly old, as it was published in 2018. So, to them, we're already living in the future of 5G, and it's a bit underwhelming. Isn't all new tech at first?


It's been quite a while since we've written about our old friend, 5G technology for phones and other mobile devices.




 Huawei differentiates 5G from other cell technologies via 3 points:

  • # of connections. 5G should have a million per square kilometer.
  • Latency - How slowly things are transferred over the network - should be very little. 
  • Also, self-driving cars are going to be using 5G.
  • Throughput - The amount of things that can pass through or use a service at once.


5G Benefits:

Remote workers. No word if 'remote' is synonymous with 'rural'. The write up suggests not. If so, I'd wonder if it was the US trying to skip giving rural America decent internet service to just jump to 5G. "Half of Connections in North America will be on 5G by 2025" (ZDNet, 2017) - Here, in 2020..You know, Verizon gave us a good start in April 2019, and T-Mobile kept it up in December of 2019.


Also, a lot of feature (basic) phones and older smartphones have been rendered unusable for modern networks - Verizon is giving the minuscule percent of people on its CDMA network until the end of 2020 to leave. You probably already have a smartphone, so no need to worry!

 No need to jump to upgrade to a 5G phone quite yet - The areas for their full use are still fairly limited. Many are also kicking around 600$ or so, but that may be no big deal to you.




As this report is fairly old, a lot of it is redundant to talk about, but I will point out this section - "How 5G Could Add $533B to US Economy By 2024".

Basically, creating the policies for how a network can be implemented, updating our wireless infrastructure, and actually implementing it will stimulate the economy.  Now we have to convince people that 5G will not make you grow an eye stalk or something.

We're certainly going to need that now.

Azure Networking Options - Core Cloud Services

I have done a lot of AWS things on here. Time to give Azure some attention. After all, since employers don't think Cisco or COMPTIA certifications are important, maybe Microsoft ones are?

First, let's really think about why these are the two biggest cloud services providers in the world:

They've been doing internet things for a long time.Amazon launched in 1995, a virtual bookstore.
Microsoft, well, you know. 

They've lived, breathed, and frankly, created, infrastructure that we use today, that they're selling to us today. Of course the Store of Everything and the Company of Everything would encourage us to put everything in their hands.

Also: Azure has a lot less silly names for modules. Important. I appreciate straightforwardness.


I said 'a lot less', not '100% sensible names'

Microsoft has a clear set of Azure Fundamentals that anyone can interact with. Let's talk about networking basics, basically to say, again, "Hi, employers, I have an …

Grace Hopper Celebration 2019 (GHC19)

From Aicha Evans' speech at the Keynote.
September 6th - I receive an email from Anita B Organization, saying "We read your application, we like your website, and here's a free ticket to GHC 2019 in Orlando, Florida!"


After a few more questions, it seemed everything was on the up and up, and so I accepted - and that's what this post is about!

For those who don't know, Grace Hopper Celebration is the largest gathering of Women in Technology in the world.

On a personal note, This is the first trip I've taken without my parents. Sure, they've left me behind to go on vacations, but I've never left them. I was totally worried! But you know what happened?

I met a lot of cool people in Orlando, learned a lot of neat things, and had a blast just walking around airports for upwards of 8 hours.

New Delta Sky Club on Wikimedia I really, really love airports! And I survived.

I know in the past, I've wormed my way out of jobs despite being interested simpl…
