This week in Eni Oken’s Art Club, we did a 2022 retrospective, and went back to basics with a standard Z-string tile. Here are my reflections and thoughts. The year in numbers I finished around 70 tiles (it’s hard to count, as I gave some away, and some ended up in my art journals) I have a half-dozen or so unfinished tiles. Around a dozen tangle studies, where I deconstructed tangles to better understand their fundamental fragments, and different tangeleations I could create.

Azure App Configuration, Key Vault and Managed Identity ImplementationDecember 9, 2022 - https://www.aligneddev.net
Azure App Configuration, Key Vault and Managed Identity Implementation We were enabled during our innovation sprint to learn about and implement Azure App Configuration, Key Vault and Managed Identity. I was familiar with the concepts, but it took me about a day to start to feel comfortable. After that there was a lot of copy/paste from appsettings.json files into Azure. Microsoft’s documentation in https://learn.microsoft.com was extremely helpful. This is what I learned and hope it helps you short circuit your learning time.
Goodbye TwitterNovember 28, 2022 - https://mwop.net/
This is a long, personal post. tl;dr: I’m leaving Twitter. You can find me in the Fediverse as @firstname.lastname@example.org. In the beginning I started using Twitter because of ZendCon 2007. Cal Evans had the idea that if folks attending the conference were to tweet about it, those who were unable to attend would get an idea of what the conference was about, get links to slides if speakers posted them, and more; it would both feed FOMO, and respond to it.
The case for AWS multi-orgNovember 22, 2022 - https://www.rosswickman.com/
Be in any game long enough and you start to notice patterns. The pendulum begins to swing in different or new directions altogether. This is especially true in technology. I haven’t been in AWS all that long and I already can see areas where things begin to drift. This time - Multi Organization configurations It is hard to explain the feeling you get when you just know something is about to happen or is already in the works.
