Hello, I am currently taking a course on CodeCademy.com on front-end web development so I'm fairly new to programming. Once I complete the course I'd like to begin with some basic projects for work to begin gaining experience. As a rookie, I know I will come across many challenges so I am looking to shorten the learning curve by obtaining guidance and support from a qualified mentor/consultant. Are there any providers out there that offer both free or paid consulting services?
I would need help with project consultation, troubleshooting, code review to ensure adequate standards. Thanks!

Veeam and MySQL: How to Perform Backup & Recovery

Veeam and MySQL: How to Perform Backup & Recovery

MySQL and the MariaDB variant are among the most used databases in Linux environments, and many critical applications support their data on them. Watch this recorded webinar to find out how Veeam Backup & Replication allows you to get consistent backups of MySQL databases.

In a previous question we're shopping for an ingredient which comes in standard pack sizes of either 100g, 250g or 500g, having prices $0.40, $0.75 and $1.00 respectively.

Let:

PackSize = {100; 250; 500}
PackPrice = {0.40; 0.75; 1.00}

QuantityNeeded = {0.... up in steps of GCD(PackSize)... MaxQuantity }

GCD = greatest common divisor, eg GCD({100; 250; 500}) = 50

We only need to define a table with intervals in these steps as in between there won't be any change in the cost. I think this logic is right, please correct me if wrong.

We then define f_mincost(QuantityNeeded ) as the set of packs that meets the QuantityNeeded at minimum cost, eg:

f_mincost(1050) gives 1 x 100g + 2 x 500g at a total cost of $2.40

This problem is solved in the previous question by using dynamic programming to create a lookup table of values:

a) Quantity needed, eg 1050
b) Minimum cost, eg $2.40
c) Pack selection, eg 100, 500, 500

Questions:
1. What MaxQuantity do we need to tabulate upto before the pattern is repeating
    ie MaxQuantity = some function of Packsize
2. How can we define f_mincost(QuantityNeeded) as a function of this repeating pattern
   eg what is f_mincost(6400) as a function of f_mincost(some value <= MaxQuantity)

This is is probably straightforward but after the previous question my head has been frazzled!

Thanks again

I am tasked to develop an MBA Leadership Development Program that will basically rotate MBA graduates at a corporate company. I would same sample as a guide to develop this program if possible. Below is the program overview sample;

Across the globe, visionary companies are investing in a pipeline of emerging executives who can help them build and secure a competitive edge. The MBA Leadership Development Programs (MBA–LDP), sometimes called Rotational Programs speeds this time-consuming process by equipping up-and-coming managers with a broader understanding of the global marketplace and a more integrated view of the organisation. The trainee will emerge from MBA-LDP with the leadership confidence, cross-functional skills, and strategic insights to drive meaningful change, innovation, and growth in any economic climate.
This MBA Leadership Development Program target graduates with Master of Business Administration degrees or equivalent business-related master’s degrees will contain components, which often includes executive-level exposure; ongoing specialized mentoring and training; diverse functional and/or geographical rotations; special projects, etc.

Many thanks in advance for any help.

Hi there,

I am curious to know if there is a process to help map all DIACAP controls to RMF ? Or if there is already a mapping that was done for this already.

Please let me know your suggestions or experience. Any bit helps

I am a newly enshrined Telco Admin for Clark County Washington and need some help modifying
the dialing plan on 8 NEC 2000 phone systems.  They are finally instituting 10 digit dialing here
in a few months and need to make the appropriate changes to the 2000's to accommodate this.

Is there anyone who would like to make a few $$ consulting or assisting in the changes necessary.
Or can someone recommend a vendor who still supports these boat anchors??

Thanks!!

Scenario: bins are taken out once a week from a storage area to another location more than 20 meters away. I want to know if the bins have NOT been taken out at any given time each week.

eg if the bins are tagged and the storage area has a receiver, the receiver can tell me if the bins are in or out of storage.

I would like to tag around 4 bins only. What cheap and simple tagging solutions exist?  

I would like the receiver to connect to wifi so i can check the status remotely. The tag on the bins should be small and discrete, so as not to encourage vandalism or theft. They should also be very low power so that batteries, if the tag needs them, would need changing at most once a year. Perhaps a magnetic solution would avoid need for batteries on the bins.

The position of the bins in the storage area is not precise but would not vary by more than 2 meters.

Thanks

I wanted to know how I could get my hands on some Cisco labs?  I interviewed for a Cisco position, but don't have the full hands on for landing a Cisco position.  I was told that I could use VIRL, but it seems like the site does not offer any books or information with regards to creating my own labs.  

Thanks for the information.  I'd like to go more on the security route with Cisco.

I wanted to take this CEH test.  Can someone explain to me what to expect, how many questions, how long.  Are there simulations on this test.  Also I hear version 9 might be out or is already out.  Are there simulations on this exam and can I still take v8?
