========== Giving reply to the course trainer,  about his training & cost proposal   ==
The proposed training apparently very extensive.
As I said in my post, Cloud is a quite new technology for me. however, Just have some concepts on it.

We are now in the inception stage of the project, planning for such extensive in-depth training of 40 hours and proposed budget, personally might not be feasible.

For now, I am expecting, to get started my work on our dev and stage environments having fair knowledge on the product, with clear concepts and practical exposure.

More likely after 4-5 months, we can plan for the more advanced sessions.

Kindly send your revised proposal of topics you cover and budget to meet my requirement, to get started as per your convenience.

As there is a proposal to implement cloud storage too near future, that we can be planned later.

As these kinds of assignments more likely to come in future, I would expect you to be moderate.

Exploring ASP.NET Core: Fundamentals

Learn to build web apps and services, IoT apps, and mobile backends by covering the fundamentals of ASP.NET Core and  exploring the core foundations for app libraries.

Hi,
In a Web application:

I need to take a screenshot of a chart that has so many columns that it flows off the right hand side of the screen. I reduce the Chrome zoom to 67% but then, the individual cells become so small that it would be hard for the reader to understand it.

Would it be considered a proper practice to split the table into two lines, with some clear indication that the 2nd screenshot is merely a continuation of the first?

Thanks.

Hello,

I'm a tech writer who's temporarily w/o a printer (until it can be fixed or replaced). Normally, I rely on printing out the article I'm working on when I'm ready to do final edits, etc. It's been a reasonably effective tool for me.

Until my printer is back online, can anyone suggest a "second-best" alternative?  These docs are web pages, on a wiki. I suppose I could copy into Word (so the doc looks different), but in this platform (Zendesk), there's at least one problem: the images don't come over.

Suggestions are welcome.

Thanks.

The downloadable PDF documents from your site are apparently not bookmarked. Thereby, it is cumbersome  to - "switch" or "know"  topic details and its page numbers. This is the basic feature expected from any document has the content categorized with various sections.Absent of this feature baffles for any enthusiastic reader.

Please advice, Is there any way we can fix this issue ?

This is further to our discussion yesterday, regarding my new medical policy upgrade.
It was wonderful taking with you yesterday. I am amazed to see your swift response in this regard for helping your team members, by having a phone call to my medical provider to consider my case positively.

As you advised me, I am sending this email to remind you, to report my obligations officially by an email. As I informed, I would prefer my new policy should cover- ABC hospital, where my ENT treatment has been going on.

I am ready to pay the differential amount that may be needed, My arrangement had been the same with my previous employer.

Your support is highly appreciated in this regard.

After watching this clip, definitely it makes every one of us disillusioned.

I thought, anyone's reply/thoughts would go by- How come in a society where currently we live-in, a individual can go thus far and stoop down to such extent to vent his anger. This crime shows one of such extreme facet.  

Would not have shared, if this is from some sort of fiction -Or- has happened at very remote place like, Amazon forests where people lives are totally disconnected with today's civil society culture.

Prior to this post, few posts have been shared here in seldom are relevant to some social incidents and made us to think. Is this also comes under such category, it is subjective to each of us.
Definitely as a member, I don't have a say!

Having said above, It is good to know, rather discouraging ourselves having known to such dark side shades of evils existence within our close sphere.

If our interest limited to collect only good portion of any sort of information to suite us, I strongly believe definitely do less good in life.

We have a button in our web application that is disabled under certain conditions. It's dark purple if you are allowed to disable this record by clicking the goggle; light/faint purple if you are not allowed to disable this record.

Grayed out buttton?
Is it acceptable to refer to the 2nd instance as being "grayed out"? event though the color is not gray? Or, should I just say "faint purple" or "light purple".

Our audience is technically knowledgeable.

Thanks,
Steve

In a web application, the user can click on the boldfaced, redacted, text below to add an account to a database.

<List of accounts>
+New Account

I have a feeling I may have asked this question before, but what do you call this thing below the account list. Icon? Option? Command?

Thanks

HI, this question is related to:
https://www.experts-exchange.com/questions/29141798/Tech-Writing-Need-less-technical-term-than-granularity.html

If I have a graph in a document with three lines (e.g. red, green, orange), I believe that the supporting info that shows that red=max profit, green = min profit, and orange = average profit is called a "legend".

But what do you call the values along the bottom (x-axis) (e.g. 4/1, 4/8, 4/15). The scale? Can it also be called a legend? Thanks.

In a web application, the user has the choice of choosing daily, weekly, or monthly as the time interval along the bottom of a graph that controls the data points.

In my current revision, I say something like:
Please choose the granularity of the graph (Daily/Weekly/Monthly)

Even though our audience is reasonably technical, I'm not sure everyone will understand "granularity".

 Is there a better term I could use?
Thanks.

Dear All,

I am creating a new email to send to our users in our company although we have an IT Outsourcing supporting us with some critical request. I will be the man that helps to give a fast response to users in the house. I need to create an email telling users about the new IT Support email and telling users that they should contact me for any IT issues so I can delegate them or solve them in house.

Would you be able to create a template for me or advise me a site where there are email templates for IT?

This looks a bit dum to ask but my time is a bit short, and I need to speed up a few tasks.
Can you please advise?

Best regards,
Eduardo

Amazon Web Services

Are you thinking about creating an Amazon Web Services account for your business? Not sure where to start? In this course you’ll get an overview of the history of AWS and take a tour of their user interface.

1)
The reason why I asked this, After having brief evaluation of the candidate profile and finds any merit in that, as a next step candidate is going be enrolled.
once they kick-off the processing typically follow a rule that, if the candidate doesn't succeed getting visa within defined timeframe they consider returning some percentage of processing fee ?

I prefer to have consultation UAE time, between 4PM-10PM ?

I am interested to have consultation with Pittu more likely this friday.

However,I just wanted to know, As per my profile, Chances of getting PR depend on getting job offer from designate employer.As you know,my current consultant doesn't have that level of competency to handle such tasks,For any reason if that not materialized here too,how the arrangement of paid fee would be?

Appreciate your patience so far

May I suggest you something? Please don?t worry about logistics. We can together sort this out. We have a ton of clients from your part of the World and we started using BoTim based on their request only. If you kindly take my suggestion, please let me share the link, you pay, let me book the slot first. Then we have good 5 days to figure the logistics part. David slots gets filled up very quickly and I honestly don?t want you to loose out time. Each day gone is a loss of competitive position as far as Canadian immigration is concerned.

Please go ahead. Rest all will be sorted.
2)
A final query .... Can I attend call along with my friend, if he satisfied, then he also could be your prospective client ?

Dear Team,
I wonder how you are able to respond so fast all over the day ! Much appreciated !

As I said before, Botim app I have never used. Skype need to be tested via VPN.
How can we make sure whether these are going to work prior to our scheduled call ?

I am not aware of Botim app used for calling purpose.For the skype, I need to check whether is it going to work with some kind of vpn help. I would prefer to have a call on Friday/Saturday. These days are observed as the weekend for us.

Please let me know, If I miss out asking any clarifications during the conversation, can we shoot a mail for our queries?

I appreciate expressing your forthright view about my profile.

If there is any fat chances as you suggested, then I would definitely be interested to go with you.
At this point of time based on my below profile, not sure If I can make it to the score-67.

To be honest with you, Currently I have enrolled with one of PR consultant and paid processing fees.
He is suggesting to get score of 67, to create my profile in EE, then only he can take my process further.Same lines as you said in mail, He told me good to have -Canadian job offer, to get the required score.He envisaged that, achieving it impossible. Reason being is,This processes has to be vetted by govt and it is being cumbersome required lot of scrutiny and then eventually luck plays the role.

As am rookie in this subject,Just got confused how to procede further from here?
I saw lot of video's on your youtube channel, hoping you are more trustworthy and take the process to logical end.

Again, I am furnishing more detail information about my profile, that would help you to re-assess my chances of getting visa.
