Udacity Front-end Developer Challenge Daily Sprint Updates

As per the Next Generation Tech Booster Challenge Program, we are asked to submit a daily progress report on slack. We just need to answer these three questions in the post: • What did I work on today? • What I will work on tomorrow? • What issues are blocking my progress?

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

60 Days of Udacity: A Bertelsmann Technology Scholarship in AI

I applied and was recently awarded the Bertelsmann Technology scholarship where a group of students take part in an Artificial Intelligence track made up of 5 parts to be completed in 3.5 months.    As part of taking the class, we have to take part in a slack channel where we post our daily studies for 60 days reflecting on what we have learned. This is a transcription of those 60 days. The public github wiki is located here https://github.com/chromilo/udacity-bertelsmann-scholarship/wiki  Day 1:  I am in p3  (Datasets) doing the xray annotation project. I have created the appen job using the "Image Categorization" template. I uploaded the xray image data and modified the CML to make the  questions specific to checking for pnemonia. Also updated the Examples section. I am still working out the usage of conditional only-if in checkboxes to determine what other smarts to include when annotators go through the page. Created one Question so far and will continue working on the ot

One of the more underappreciated AWS service

The most under-appreciated AWS service is the AWS Certificate Manager (ACM). This service provides SSL/TLS certificate for your custom domain as long as you subscribe to any ACM-integrated service like Elastic Cache or Cloudfront.  I had been using Wordpress to host my website https://aminsolutions.com for some time on a free web hosting provider. In order to provide SSL/TLS web encryption, I would have to buy a public certificate from an SSL provider and have that in front of my Wordpress content management web site. I found there were many limitations with that including installation of a public certificate on a free webhost subscription.  I would have had to start a paid web host subscription and in order to install a paid public certificate on a Wordpress website that wasn't getting a lot of hits. Regardless, it had to be secured via SSL web encryption so this is where AWS Cloudfront came in. Using AWS Cloudfront integrated with ACM, I can get a free public SSL web certificate
