Bubble Development ?

These type of platforms can build pretty powerful tools. Many times these platforms (see also IFTTT, Zapier, Flow from Microsoft) are focused on automation, marketing, data aggregation, and more. If you are trying to build a completely custom application, then you are more than likely going to run into limitations depending on the features that you are looking to implement. Moreover, if you do run into those limitations, how to you migrate away from those platforms which is a concern that I always consider.

I can't tell you whether learning Bubble, Zapier, Flow, etc. is best for you because of the many variables that can help make that decision. Concerning whether all programming will move to that style of programming, I doubt that. I say that because people are resistant to change (especially an entire industry), limitations are evident, learning costs money so many people use programming languages they already know, and lastly, the domain (such as operating systems) defines the requirements of the tools.

Hope that helps.

Yes - you are crushing it! You have reasons behind your design that make sense! Awesome!

We never want to be designing complexity into the network just because those options exist - and you are NOT doing that. Awesome.

MCSA, MCSD, MCSE certifications retire

With the traditional M$ certs retiring, I am wondering how up and coming students will learn about on-premise AD environments, AD site replication, NTFS, and share permissions? After studying Azure AD some, it's obvious that on-premise expertise will be in demand for quite some time. Is Microsoft expecting anyone coming into IT now to only learn Azure AD and be somewhat "self taught" when it comes to the on-premise environments they will inevitably run into?

I forgot my MacBook password

@Aladdin-Alsati hi, there.

Thanks so much for taking your time to assist me.

No, my cloud is not connected.
I'm following the steps in the link you provided. In the terminal window I wrote "resetpassword". When I click enter or return key I'm prompted with the window reset password but there are more fields besides enter a new password for this user. One of them says "select the volume disc containing the user account". Sadly, is not showing anything and it's not giving permission to make any change in other fields.

Can you please help me to how to backup before a proceed to recovery OS? For me this would help a lot.

AWS, Amazon Web Services, Cloud Services

AWS Developer: An Introduction to AWS Lambda

Lambda is just the service name in AWS. The programming language is fairly flexible, but writing Lambda functions in JavaScript or Python is probably the easiest way to get started. Lambda, as far as I know, is not exclusively the object of current or future exams (things can change). Typically, I like to use Lambda (initially) to write functions to act as a cron job or when you want to process files like resizing images. However, you can use it to build web services, data processors, and more.

Hope that helps.

WVD: Personal or Pooled

Seems that I am getting the following error message:

I then submitted a ticket to increase the limit which has been done and now getting the following error message:

Topics surrounding to VMware vSphere and related products

vCenter and SSO


My apologies as to the tardiness to answer you. This is uncharacteristic of our team but we do have posts that slip past us before we realized and this is one of those.

This is more probably dealing with the security policy where you are than it is something that will substantively improve or degrade your performance. If you choose to join the vCenter server to the domain. That will work, remember that your computer will be a member that computer if domain policies can apply to it, it will. Also for SSO, this allows domain users that have the proper permissions to access the server too. You may want to choose which configuration options to consider here: **it also has this telling paragraph.

To configure vCenter Single Sign-On, you must have vCenter Single Sign-On administrator privileges. Having vCenter Single Sign-On administrator privileges is different from having the Administrator role on vCenter Server or ESXi. In a new installation, only the vCenter Single Sign-On administrator (administrator@vsphere.local by default) can authenticate to vCenter Single Sign-On.

LInux Course path

I would work on LPIC certifications. Use this platform as well as hands on Linux using they have interactive VM's where you use linux commands to find flags hidden inside of a VM. It's alot of fun and helps with understanding linux. Also you can use Ciscos

Once you get a job working with linux full time I'd recommend looking at Redhat certifications. Thats a ways off but, you'll get there,
