Wall of Graduates from the AI Product Manager Nanodegree

The "Wall of Graduates" is a Google sites page showing a profile list of students who graduated from the Udacity AI Product Manager nanodegree. We were asked two questions to include in our profile and there are those two questions.  What obstacles (big or small!) did you face during Phase 2 & how did you overcome them?    I think the biggest was time constraint. I was also doing my Georgia Tech course in the spring and this fell on the same timeline. The other obstacle is that the course material was not technical but more for product managers. This meant a lot of time was spent networking in slack participating community-driven initiatives. I did learn Artificial Intelligence concepts but it didn't need to last from December 2020-December 2021.  How are you making use of your newfound skills?  I don't use AI at work but it has allowed me to open my eyes to possibilities. We recently implemented MS Azure Cognitive service utilizing text translation. Although not

What Docker Image for GO works on a Raspberry Pi 3 running Kubernetes k3s orchestrator?

I applied and was recently awarded a Cloud-native Application Architecture scholarship by SUSE and Udactity.

I uploaded this docker image to my Docker Hub registry for use in a Kubernetes cluster. We needed to install Oracle VirtualBox, Hashicorp Vagrant, and run Kubernetes k3s cluster to host this docker image. This worked well on my computer but I wanted to try the same exercise on my RPi which had a lot less resources and wanted to see how well it worked there. I have a Raspberry Pi 3 running Raspian OS with 32GB of disk and 4GB of memory. I connected the RPi via wifi on my local LAN and have opened up an SSH session to it. First I install
