About Me

I'm Morgan Lucas. If you searched "Lucas Network Solutions" and this came up, you are in the right place!

 Network Infrastructure graduate with my A+, Security+, Cisco Certified Network Associate (CCNA), and Microsoft Azure Fundamentals certification.

Work: This blog is a portfolio of projects, from Apple Ecosystems, Ubuntu servers, Active Directory, to packet sniffing, Cloud Computing, IT Automation, programming (Python, Javascript), and more.  

  • Making changes for the better and improving processes.
  • Working with planners, hosts, creatives.
  • Contributing toward social good.
  • Supporting exciting industries that are always changing and growing. 
 A bit quiet, reserved, and hard to get to know well, but I don't mind if you try.

Here are more details on what  I'm looking forward to in a role.

  • Movies   📽 I'm interested in Cinema tech and look forward to CinemaCon every year.
  • Reading  📚
  • Video Games  🎮
  • Exercise 🏃🏿‍♀️
  • Cooking  ♨️
In the past year, I've set up ad hoc networks, done overnight stock work, and monitored/troubleshot tablets that were used to take specialized payments while interacting with customers in a slightly dry, matter-of-fact manner. I can work with specialized software and am constantly testing trials and open source software.

Logical, original, and creative thinker who is excited about theories and ideas, valuing knowledge and competence.

I also fix up your blank LinkedIn Business Pages...because empty pages look eerily suspicious.

I am an American citizen - So, please, no jobs that involve the government/military, thank you.

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…

Search and Infiltrate: How to Deeply Investigate a Company's People

Latest Update - 12/2/2019

This is a bit of an impromptu post after reading this article.

I had a small thread about this on Twitter, a blog post is a lot better to get the information out in a clear way.

Have you ever used, came across a group of people who match Your Dream Company, Dream Location, and do your Dream Job on LinkedIn...and they're not active?

What was the POINT, am I right?  A place for professionals to network, but they're not active ...because they have a job to do! You want to be like that!

Unfortunately, in this day and age, unless you have a 'relationship' with someone, they're not going to help you.


(Note: 'relationship' is different than relationship).

I'm not here to talk bad about recruiters - They have a difficult job, I know I couldn't do it! - And even they want a relationship before they place you somewhere, competency be damned.

What do you do instead?


(Note; I'm using my own URL for this an…
