Cloud Computing

Cloud computing, also known as on-demand computing, is a kind of Internet-based computing where shared resources and information are provided to computers and other devices. It is a model for enabling ubiquitous, on-demand access to a shared pool of configurable computing resources. Cloud computing and storage solutions provide users and enterprises with various capabilities to store and process their data in third-party data centers, relying on sharing of resources to achieve coherence and economies of scale.

Paperspace coupled with Parsec gets me a really good cloud gaming experience for times when I'm away from home.  You can also skip Paperspace and just set up your gaming rig as a Parsec host (I don't because my current rig/connection isn't the best for streaming.  Also, I don't feel 100% comfortable with a potential backdoor into my system). AWS/Azure also work, but Paperspace is cheaper and a bit easier out of the box.

This article matches my experience with regards to GCP Firebase vs AWS Lambda. The TLDR is that AWS is better for testing but Firebase is way less complicated overall. For personal projects I'll be sticking with Firebase as much as I can.

That's awesome! I used to maintain a candy dish in the office and it would occasionally run dry... Applying the beer tracking system would have been handy. I may have to start up that candy dish again just to do this project! Plus, it'd be a better way to understand popularity of various candy by tracking the consumption rates (I had a spreadsheet to note when I refilled and what candy I added to sort of track that, but the real-time monitoring would be even better.)

Just back from the Google Next conference.  Solid show.  Will be sharing next product launches shortly.  Curious if any other folks attended and what they thought?IMG_1695.JPG
