    MLOps + DevOps + Kubernetes with Annie Talvasto

    MLOps + DevOps + Kubernetes with Annie Talvasto

    Machine learning models need updating - what's the reliable way to do it? While in Romania, Richard sat down with Annie Talvasto to talk about her work helping to build DevOps practices around machine learning: Building repeatable processes for data ingestions, cleaning, organization, model building, and deployment. The challenges are the arrays of skilled people needed to operate and evaluate the pipeline - it takes domain experts to know if the machine learning results are accurate and valuable. Tooling can help, but it is only in the early days. If your organization is keen to get machine learning into the company, you need to do some careful planning!

    Identity Governance with Jef Kazimer

    Identity Governance with Jef Kazimer

    How's your identity governance? Richard talks to Jef Kazimer from Microsoft about Entra's capabilities to help you have robust governance around identity. Jef talks about the lifecycle of identity - when someone joins the organization and a new identity gets created, privileges changing as roles evolve, to the eventual offboarding when that person departs. The same sort of cycle exists for devices, too - the question is only how much work you must do to get through those cycles. Entra offers tooling to get identity changes out of your support tickets - make your life easier with effective identity governance!

    Have you downloaded the latest version of PowerShell? While at the MVP Summit in Redmond, Washington, Richard sat down with Sydney Smith to discuss some of the features in PowerShell 7.4.

Unnecessary these days

I'm rating this a 5 bc I really enjoy it. But please be more careful.
"...but see what you did is you just granted access to the Corporate Gal because that's your context, to some random app on the app store..."
I realize that we don't always 'assume' when someone is talking about their doctor or their home renovation contractor that they are talking about a woman. It is *awesome* when someone does assume the person is the 'unexpected gender' like Jonathan Strickland over at TechSTuff podcast often does. Let's not continue the stereotype that the Corporate Gal is the one leaking our data or installing something bad. Maybe she is! But challenging the assumption is better -- and, especially today in the tech world with so few women and such a desperate need for more of them, we deserve it.

Ransomware episode #758

Very good episode my employer was hit when they were in worse of time business wise. Almost brought tears into my eyes. We were out commission for 28 +!days.
We paid handsome amount. Now coming to tech. point. all old servers which were our legacy DB (not MSSQL) on windows 2012 but no one connect to them directly just via tcpip connection were totally safest. No ransomwere was able hurt them. On the other hand everything else was trashed.
Plus all Linux based machine were safe too.
Anyway, good episode all IT people should listen to it.
Because of ransomwere I stopped switching to IT security field. Too much pressure.
