Totally Terraform (Or, Introducing Terraform DevOps Cloud Engineer Proceedures to A Company)

Hey, I have a per-small-project job - Contracted to build things in Terraform and push them to Azure to a company building out their Azure department. 80% of the time, it's pretty fun. I had to teach myself Terraform, but that's what this entire blog is about; Teaching myself things and hoping for work sometimes to make money and being employed by multiple people. You can be the next one! Anyway, what do I like about Terraform? A lot. Check out my live-post troubleshooting on a specific issue here .   Likes:   It clearly tells you what an error is! Troubleshooting was mostly such a breeze, and since I wasn't getting [too] annoyed, I could more easily learn where the mistakes where. For instance, the first line in the main code ('provider') - the 'azurerm' part is not a random name; provider " azurerm " It's an actual thing that connects to Azure.   You can make variables in a different file and use them in the main code. You will need 3 files

Using Azure Data Studio and SQL Database

    As part of one of my Data Science Scholarships, I am allowed to download the database files. So I thought, why not stick them in a database on Azure for some learning.  They didn't say I couldn't.  LEARN LEARN LEARN. After opening Azure Data Studio, hit 'New Connection'. In order to get the entire server name, go back to azure and your SQL Database, and under 'Settings' on the far left, hit 'Connection Strings'.

The Emoji Ideal; Apple's Memoji and Samsung Galaxy's AR Emoji

I'm here to compare.   Galaxy's AR emoji were a surprise to me, when placing images for contacts. I realized I saw one multiple times on a website someone was using for personal branding. Besides that, I'm not sure I've ever seen them in the wild. Maybe because I can't figure out how to get to the app on my phone without going to my contacts section - and no one else can either. Because of their simplicity of the smooth heads, emotions on Apple's people emoji - memoji - look better to me.  

Connecting VMs Together in a Virtual Network (Azure)

Here - Don't be dismayed by the instructions. Today's Events: Configure a network security group + security rules using Powershell. The application server should connect to the database server over HTTP. BUT the database server shouldn't use HTTP to connect to the application server.

Webinar: Building B2B vs B2C Products by Spotify Sr PM Aisha Ishak

Ever wondered what the difference is between B2B and B2C Product Management ? Enterprise Product Management has different challenges and rewards than consumer products and while you may find that consumer products are more exciting, working on an enterprise product is extremely fascinating as well. Learn the differences here. Aisha Ishak is a Senior Product Manager leading the strategy, development, and launch of innovative and customer-centric products at Spotify.   My first instinct is to say that B2B uses  jargon, and B2C aims to be friendly and human because - say it with me - People buy from humans . *

My Shoes Have Bluetooth and I Must Scream: UnderArmor's Hovr and MapMyRun

 Other potential titles included "Walking With the Enemy" and "Internet of Shoestrings". I'm not against the concept of the Internet of Things - IoT - but the severe lack of security installed on a commercial level, the lack of education for end users, and the growing reliance on technology in our world. The people who are best at their job have hobbies away from the machine. Some of mine include exercise, running, walking - I go through sneakers quick and hard. So I got some cool shoes - Under Armor HOVR .    They're not on the site but here they are. I got them from an outlet mall, could be discontinued.   I didn't realize until I got home that they had the Bluetooth insignia both within them and on the box.  

Dartwood 2K QHD USB Webcam with Built-in Microphone

    There are few reviews about this product across the web - Target has the most, and the "company's" own site has none . Makes me think this is sold under various names. It was less expensive than the initial webcam I was looking at and easily returnable. Does the low price pay off?
