Azure Update

Okay, so I started an Azure account, created a Web app project tied to Azure Dev Ops, and I just finished deleting the project.  While I admit, I haven’t had the time to really dedicate to it; but the decision game to cost. Should have done better research. I have the free credit, but at the rate I was burning through it, it wouldn’t have lasted long.

Going to count my loses and regroup once I can better understand the cost being each service. I still have a fair amount of my credit left so it isn’t so bad. Just need to make sure I have time to delve deeper. For now, AWS.

Microsoft Azure, Why Not!

While still struggling to find my groove in re-balancing my life, I’ve decided to expand my Cloud computing by setting up a Microsoft Azure account. Figured since I’m already using Azure DevOps to track my project, why not dig deeper.

So not only did I setup my account, I went all out by creating a web application server tied directly into Azure DevOps with a full pipeline to manage it. Git, Build, and Deploy all covered. CI/CD here I come. While I’m familiar with this at work and essentially helping to migrate a project over into a CI/CD structure, I’ve yet to play with a full pipeline enabled application.

Now I just need to be careful not to overload myself with to many projects. While by the time I finish with work, and now having to handle another college class, I can’t say I’m all that gun ho to work on more projects. Fortunately, I honestly find enjoyment in playing around with new technology. Just need to re-balance myself.

Blog Migrated to AWS!

Alright, will have to see how this goes. Migrated my WordPress blog onto my own server in AWS. The migration wasn’t a completely smooth as the template isn’t 100% the same. Will definitely be tweaking my custom CSS to get everything right; but this is why I did it. Best way for me to learn is to start playing around with things. Just hope this doesn’t all blow up on me somehow. I’ll keep my WordPress.com page up as a backup; but will start pointing everyone here.
