Microsoft Second Shot Offer is back

Microsoft has introduced their Second Shot Offer again. Using this offer people who are interested in doing certification get a second chance to that the exam if it does not go well the first time round. More details on this offer can be found on this page ( .
It is thanks to this offer that I started doing my Microsoft certifications back in 2006 because in Mauritius exams are quite expensive (about $125/MUR3,500) and I would never have had the courage to spend so much money on exams if I didn't ave the second shot as a back up.
There are also 2 other offers concerning exams for SQL2008 and Visual Studio 2008 on the page. These 2 offers give you a 40% off voucher on any one of the new certification exams on SQL2008 and VS2008.

Happy 10th birthday to Azure

Today is the 10th year anniversary of Azure. Azure was launched during Professional Developers Conference (PDC) in October 2008. Why not celebrate #Azure today by sharing stories of how #Azure is being used today to provide solutions impossible 10 years ago. I have using Azure since 2016. I sent a proposal to the Azure4Research program on an Air Quality project I was working on at that time in Mauritius and within 4 weeks our proposal was accepted. The project involved creating low cost air quality monitoring station using Raspberry Pi and Arduino to monitor the quality of air. The grant from Azure4Research was worth USD 20,000 and allowed us to use Azure for 12 months. It was a great learning experience to get to use Azure in our research. All the data captured was being sent to Azure and stored on an SQL database. The data was processed using PowerBI to create dashboards to enable us to monitor the data captured. The research is being published this year at a conference being held

Life as a PhD student

Hi; I just wanted to offer a small insight into the world of a PhD student. I am currently using Web History on Google so as to remember the searches I have done and pages I have visited. Below is my Google history from the beginning of the year. The first thing I notice from this is, when do I sleep? On this note, bye I am going back to work. Regards Shivam
