The Three Fundamentals of Learning Cloud Computing and DevOps Engineering

Getting into cloud computing or the DevOps world is made easy by various cloud providers. For instance, Amazon Web Services provides access to AWS Educate to learn both the fundamentals of the cloud and AWS cloud services specifics, and Google provides access to Qwiklabs to learn all about the cloud and Google Cloud Platform cloud services specifics. Microsoft provides access to Microsoft Learn to do the same as others provided. The Linux Foundation has courses and training on cloud native paths and so on. There are other learning platforms outside the provider platforms. KodeCloud, ACloud, and others are also a place to leverage cloud technology knowledge. Diving into all of the above-mentioned platforms may be very tedious and difficult without the knowledge of the basics. To find the cloud journey more interesting, one needs to have in their toolkits the basics to be discussed in this article. Don’t misunderstand this, jumping this will not hinder you from learning on those platforms. But it’s worth knowing that all these platforms are like an ocean to learn on and an ocean that can easily drone beginners and starters without the full knowledge of basics and fundamentals. My exploration of those platforms made it a choice for me to support people like me to learn the right way and show them what it is necessary to have as a pre-requisite. The following are the basics you need to have as a person planning to start a cloud engineering journey.

Linux Services - A Step-by-Step Guide to Creating a Personal Cloud Server

It is a popularly known fact that a Linux server can apparently run for years without needing a restart. For this reason, Linux is the most used platform for server related jobs and tasks. For decades Linux leads the list of StackOverflow surveys of the most used platform not until Windows introduced WSL (Windows Subsystem for Linux) before overtaking the Linux. This is just a simple reason why this article was curated to help introduce you to the world of Linux power use. Automation is another key feature made possible by Linux, in this article we will talk about the following

    1. Why Choosing Linux?
    1. What are Linux services?
    1. Systemctl and other basic service management commands
    1. Creattion of a NodeJS service
    1. Creation of the service

Why Choosing Linux?

As mentioned in the beginning, Linux possessed various features which make it stand out in servers and services provision. According to a survey by w3techs survey, over 77% of online servers run Linux, 90% of public cloud run Linux and practically all the best cloud hosts use it, 96.3% of the world’s top 1 million servers run on Linux. This is possible because of the following

  • a. Stability: Linux can run for a very long time without requiring a restart which means a server put on Linux can restart itself without the Linux no necessary need to restart.
  • b. Security: This is a feature of Linux that provide access for both what is defensive security expert and offensive in all kinds of manner. Various Linux distributions (distros) were built to be defensive, while many others were built to be offensive and others combine the two capabilities. This is a security strategy made available by Linux but no other platform.
  • c. Open Source: This is one of the popular reasons why Linux owns a lot of the individuals and enterprise desks. Availability of codebase for ease of customization at no cost serves a greater purpose in the usage of the platform.
  • d. Accessibility: The codebase of Linux is made available for everyone which allows users to create what best solves their problems. The ability to create special-purpose OS is made possible through Linux.
  • e. Terminal: This is a special feature provided by Linux to interact with the services running on it. It is known that many servers didn’t provide a graphical user interface (GUI), for these reasons, the terminal is the only means of interaction with the server. The Linux terminal contains SHELL be it Bourne Again Shell (BASH), Bourne Shell (SH Shell), Z shell (zsh) and CShell (tcsh or csh). All of this provides an interface to interact with services in place of the general graphical user interface (GUI) known. Cover Phto

    What are Linux services?

    Cloud services are provided as a service, do you know why? Because they are made of servers. Available resources that are run and managed by Linux are called services. The ability to ensure the servers of the installed program are running and follow a logical boot-up order automatically are examples of the action of service configuration in Linux. Units which are sometimes interchanged with resources are a set of processes managed and run by Linux. Each unit is clearly defined in a file called unit files which are called by the name of their extension. For example filename.service unit will be referred to as service unit, filename.socket is called socket units and so on. All these units are found in a very unique location on Linux called the system directory inside the systemd which can be found in /etc/systemd/system. Systemd: This is the software suite which provides a list of units and components for Linux OS. It houses all the units and service configurations. The service manager and system are the main primary component of the init system. This system always has a PID (process ID) of 1 which gives it privileges to be the first process to run after boot-up and service as the entry point for other programs. To check the availability of systemd on your system, run the below command and you will get an integer 2733 as an output.

    pidof system
    

    To check the process structure and tree of the currently running processes, run the below command

    ptree -p
    

    To create a service is very simple but the service to be created needs to run and executes a certain predefined program in this case, our yet to build nodeJS app. This app will return “Hello World” for our users and they will be ready to pay us a million dollars for checking it out): In order to follow along, you can create your own program that you intend to make available to your users or grab the source code for our app on GitHub here. Ensure you have nodeJS installed if you download or clone the app from GitHub. When you are done, you can test the app by opening your terminal in the cloned project directory and run

    node myhelloapp
    

    This should produce an output like this <{message: “Hello, World!”}> If you get anything other than this, follow the error message to fix it and follow along when you are done.

Understanding Git Terms and Git States

Git

Git is the most popular version control system. A version control system tracks and records changes made in our code over time in a special hidden folder created in the project directory called a repository. Git help us check project history to know what was changed, when and by who. This helps developers to scale, collaborate and work together seemlessly. In addition, it is important to be aware that before git can be used on your local machine, it has to be installed.

Routing Essentials and IP Addresses in Computer Networking

image Connectivity between networks, both on Local Area Network (LAN) and the internet at large, are managed and controlled by the idea of computer networking. Networking is a field in Information Technology (IT) that ensures the interconnectivity between and among networks. It ensures that the broadcasting of packet data (message, data) is an easy and achievable process. The connectivity that ensures data movement is made possible through the concept of this discourse - ”ROUTING”. Routing is the selection of a path or route to be followed by a particular data packet (data or message or information) that is being shared over a network. Keywords Router: A device that is capable of transferring data from the source address to the destination address Packet data: This is the data or information or message being shared or transferred over a network. In this discussion, we shall be using the three words interchangeably. Protocols: Set of rules or guidelines that governs data transmission over a network. It is a standard that must be followed by nodes (computer) on a network to be able to communicate properly. Node: Individual devices or PCs on the network. Hops: Movement of data packets through the routers result to hop. And the number of networks the data packet passes is called hop counts. IP: Stands for Internet Protocol which delivers packets to the right computers. It is of two versions. The IPv4 and IPv6 (Internet Protocol Version 4 and 6) Autonomous System: A network or group of networks being managed and controlled by a single enterprise or operator. image

Expert's Talk

Edgar Mosso: I am a data scientist who is passionate about transforming reality with data. I really believe in progress based on analysing and understanding everything we can sense in our real world; and markets, financial services and social media are not the exception. As an engineer I’ve been working with two banks since I started my professional career three years ago giving me some experience to understand a little more about data sciense itself. I believe there is no key to success but learning as much as you can from everything you get in touch with can give you a very large advantage from those who are not willing to learn.

Not only because Constraint Layout allows you to create optimized large and complex layouts with a flat view hierarchy (no nested view groups), nor that it is — similarly to Relative Layout (Which is the layout I used to prefer before using Constraint layout) deal with all views according to relationships between sibling views and the parent layout with more flexibility and simplicity, But also because of 6 options that made it as it is which are :

Lessons from hosting a hackathon for complete beginners, and why they liked it.

Hackathons are fun, interactive and social gathering of like minded people who spend their time hacking together pieces of code to build something cool. For years hackathons have been known for huge cash prizes for winners. Sometimes the numbers are just humungous. Having a huge cash prize means, attracting more hackers, giving rise to a complete competitive enviroment. So here’s a question? Being a complete beginner to the entire programming thingy and having to compete with highly skilled people (There drowns half of your motivation) just to end up comparing yourself and having that thought of “Am I really cut out for this?” might always get a “nay!” from our young lads.

One of the clear issues he found himself in, is that he didn’t well design his database when he created his app the first time, which when the app grew up so fast leaded to a big amount of mixed rubbish, neither him could well analyze it nor the user was able to have a good UX (‘cuz of the big amount of unnecessary data he has to download despite the fact he needs it or no ).

Behavioral Economics. -From a non-Econ perspective-

I started studying on my free time about “Behavioral Economics” using The book written by Richard H. Thaler and entitled “MisBehaving : The Making Of Behavioral Economics” . The book is a masterpiece that I recommend to everyone who might be interested in understanding the human behaviors, and of course for those who are interested in Economics also.
