Connect to Snowflake with Node.js Driver

This will be the first entry into my Snowflake toolbox. Today I am going to set my MacBook Pro up to connect to a Snowflake data warehouse via the Snowflake Node.js driver. This could come in handy when needing to move data between systems where direct connections are not available and you need an intermediary. …

Become the Change You Seek!

By the time this posts hits, I’ll be in the air heading to one of my favorite cities, San Francisco. — My Sifu, Coach Sule, has that slogan as part of his email signature, and those are words are quite fitting.  If you have been following me on Twitter, then you know that a lot …

To be more specific: dbryant@asus:~$ lsb_release -a No LSB modules are available. Distributor ID: Ubuntu Description: Ubuntu 17.04 Release: 17.04 Codename: zesty As a …

Microservices PoC: A Docker Calculator

This example will explore building a simple container that has one specific  function. I’ll then extend this concept to a bit to add additional containers in an effort to build a basic calculator that can add, subtract, divide, and multiply. The current rendition will execute from the command line. Given enough time, we can REST …
