I wanted to start a website to pass on to others what I have learned to get into, get answers, or just generally learn more about the “cloud”. My career has always put me at the cutting edge of tech and now I am using the cloud, and have been for a few years. This site, a blog using Amazon’s Lightail service on a WordPress stack, will hopefully serve a purpose to those that want to advance their cloud knowledge. To speak specifically about it, I use AWS 99% of the time for my work and personal use. There will be some articles on here that are out of scope from that but I hope that this information is useful to someone out there. I am trying to get my co-workers and some others to post up some interesting content. I am still setting this site up, so bare with me. If you are using the cloud for a mostly Microsoft Windows environment, please check out my friend’s blog: http://cloudywindows.io. His name is Darwin, and he is ridiculously smart. I run many Windows stacks at work, but he’s got me beat on a blog by miles. I will also try to nab the Twitter handle bafflerio so you can get updates when I, or anyone, post something new.
Until then, I am (*still*) working on a post on how to set up Sublime to create CloudFormation templates. JSON/YAML, snippets, and the whole shabang. Yes, we will be diving in head first.
Happy rain making.
