5 Reasons to Get Trained in Cloud Computing

Published

Top Cloud Computing Companies to Work for in 2021

Over the past 10 years, the global business environment has changed a lot. During this time, companies have embraced technology with open arms to the extent that – as of right now – the majority of business functions are conducted (or assisted) by technology. From customer service to digital marketing, technology has become the heartbeat for most industries – and this will remain the case long into the future.

Naturally, the tech revolution means that modern-day employees need to change and adapt in order to keep their career prospects high. One of the effective and future-proof ways you can do this is by training in cloud computing.

What is cloud computing and why it is important?

In a nutshell, cloud computing is a type of computing where networks, apps, storage, and servers are handled through the internet. For example, many companies are now using cloud computing to store all their customer data, which their employees can easily access through a cloud platform.

But, one must also keep in mind the need for an IT asset disposition service, before fully migrating to Cloud. This is to get free space at the office and a good price for the outdated data storage devices & hardware. Here in Newark CA, there’s an expert called “Dataknox” that specializes in IT equipment buyback and reverse logistics.

Now that the basics have been covered, here are the top 5 reasons why you should get trained in cloud computing and consider pursuing it as a career.

Stability

According to Statista, by 2022, the public cloud computing market is expected to reach an estimated value of 482 billion – yes, billion – U.S. dollars. More than anything, this should highlight to you how important cloud computing is right now and how important it will be in the future. So, if you’re looking for a stable career, becoming an engineer in cloud computing is a smart career path to follow.

Being a cloud engineer means that you’ll be responsible for solving technical problems related to cloud computing, such as server maintenance and data storage. Once you become a trained expert, all of this will make a lot more sense. You can train to become a cloud engineer across various platforms. One of the most popular platforms is the Google Cloud Platform (GCP). Through easy-to-follow training and guidance, you can get google certification.

High pay

Across all countries – including Ghana – you can get paid a lot for being a cloud engineer. This is because the industry is booming, and engineer jobs are in high demand. In comparison to other jobs, such as digital customer service, you will get paid substantially more, which should be a big motivational factor for you.

Flexibility

Because of the nature of cloud computing, engineering work can be done remotely from different locations. For example, you could be a freelance cloud engineer who works from home and provides services to lots of different companies. Or, alternatively, you could work full-time for a specific company but do it on a flexible basis (i.e., switch between working in the office and from home).

The opportunity to start your own business

After getting your certification for Google Cloud Platform or another cloud service, the opportunity to start your own business becomes a reality. As mentioned above, you could work from home and run your own cloud maintenance business and even hire other cloud engineers to work for you. The opportunity is huge.

Train people yourself

If you’re trained in cloud computing, this means that you can pass on your knowledge to other people who are eager to learn. In fact, you can make a living by training people – from students to established professionals – on how to use different cloud platforms, whether it’s Microsoft Azure or Google Cloud Platform.

Custom Wedding dress: Everything You Should Know

Published

on

Sark wedding 620x406 1

For brides who are searching for a particular gown but are unable to locate it anyplace, a custom gown can be the perfect fit. If so, please continue reading about the process of creating and designing below. Furthermore, it is recommended to start making your own custom gown at least nine to twelve months prior to your big day

Perhaps the perfect option for you is a custom bridal gown.If you have a unique body shape and can’t find the right design anyplace, or if you want to incorporate a beloved piece of clothing (like your grandmother’s antique lace handkerchief), making your own wedding dress is a terrific option.

How Are Customised Wedding Dresses Made?

These dresses are mainly constructed from either taffeta, satin or silk. However, some women prefer making their own dresses using personal materials that they have emotional attachments to. Additionally, if you want your wedding dress to be environmentally friendly, both hemp and bamboo are good choices.

You can buy these materials online or go to the nearest store that sells fabrics to get the best fabrics and designs at reasonable prices. On the other hand, you may put on an ancient crafty piece of attire along with your selected wedding dress.

However, before getting down to work, it is worth noting that you should first pick up a fabric that one will find more close resembling his taste. After this task, you will need a body measurement and create a mockup dress in order to ascertain its perfect fit. To accomplish this stage, you can either buy dressmaking software or use sewing machine as well as needles and thread hands when making a sample for service delivery.

Once everything is finalized and you’ve chosen the perfect design for your aesthetic, you may have a talented tailor make for your dress.

A Few Things to Look for in a Tailor 

Finding a tailor with experience in creating custom wedding dresses can be crucial. Even better, consider seeking a tailor who has altered bridal gowns for past brides, as they will have an understanding of the adjustments required.

Additionally, consider where the tailor is situated, and his or her fee. However, in most cases you get what you pay for: it’s just that some very good sewers charge very reasonable prices. By typing ‘wedding dress sewing services’ into Google you can acquire an array of reputable local tailors. You may also ask your friends and family members about the best seamstress within your area.

Options for Customizing Wedding Dresses

You can customise a wide variety of wedding gown styles to match your specific proportions. The most popular wedding dress categories are:

    • Ball Gowns: Full-skirted ball gowns are ideal for brides who have an hourglass form. Given that they frequently include a high waist, these dresses can be the easiest to personalize.
    • Sheath or Shift Dress: Brides with long, slim figures look stunning in sheath or shift dresses. These dresses are fairly basic, frequently featuring a fitted bodice and a voluminous skirt.
    • Column or Mermaid Dress: These dresses have a full skirt and are fitted at the waist, much like ball gowns. For brides who have an hourglass body, they are ideal. 
  • A-line Dress: Brides with apple or pear-shaped bodies look stunning in a-line gowns. 

Benefits of customize Your Clothes

Choosing to create your wedding dress has a number of perks.. First of all, you don’t have to follow trends in order to create the exact style and appearance you want. Even more environmentally friendly materials can be used to make your bridal gown, or it might incorporate sentimental clothing pieces. You may also alter your wedding gown as many times as needed to get the perfect fit.

You will be ready to wear your custom wedding dress several times, which is not possible with a custom-made or designer dress. You can wear your wedding gown to formal events such as anniversaries and weddings.

Conclusion

One possibility that can be uniquely yours on this big day is making your own wedding gown which no one else will own ever again. Furthermore, if you are not able to find a ready-made dress that fits perfectly because of having a different body shape, then designing custom wedding dresses could be an ideal solution.

When making the decision to sew your own bridal gown, it is advised that you research on the fabrics, stitching techniques and quantities as soon as possible. You are also supposed to start thinking about this at least one year before in order that there remains enough time to complete the dress with adjustments if any would be required..

Today, Iceland Airwaves announces the first names for its 25th Anniversary edition, taking place from 7th – 9th November 2024 in Downtown Reykjavik. Alongside the news, the festival has released ticket & travel packages for 2024, which are available now.

Celebrating two and a half decades of bringing Iceland’s thriving creative community together with some of the world’s strongest new music talent, this year’s edition promises to be one of Airwaves’ most exciting to date.

“We are incredibly proud to be celebrating not only 25 years of Iceland Airwaves, but 25 years of playing a key part in the careers of some of the world’s most talented artists,” says Ísleifur Þórhallsson, Festival Manager for Iceland Airwaves. “Over the years we have seen many of our Airwaves alumni grow from strength to strength, often developing into some of the industry’s most acclaimed artists. It is an honour to continue to bring new talent to Reykjavik, and share our beloved Icelandic community with the world.”

Leading today’s announcement is South London singer and producer Shygirl, renowned for her mid-2000s club-pop bangers, the 2023 Mercury Prize nominee boasts acclaimed solo albums alongside collaborations with the likes of SOPHIE, Arca, and FKA twigs.

Also announced today are cult London trio bar italia, formed out of their existing projects – Sam Fenton and Jezmi Fehmi’s Double Virgo, and Nina Cristante’s NINA. Following two albums via Dean Blunt’s label World Music, they moved to Matador to release follow ups Tracey Denim and The Twits, all starring their signature lo-fi, scuzzy, grunge.

Elsewhere, the lineup sees Toronto-based, Japanese-Scottish artist Saya Grayannounced for the festival. Recognised for her genre-bending soundscapes, Saya Gray’s 19 MASTERS and QWERTY certified her as a fresh new voice in experimental music.

Moving into the world of dance, this year’s Iceland Airwaves also sees UK duo Joy (Anonymous) join its lineup, a pair known for their infectious positivity and impromptu sets on London’s South Bank. Further act announcements include American synth-pop duo Magdalena Bay. The pair embrace and explore the potential of experimental pop music, drawn to the movement by producers such as Charli XCX and Grimes.

Belgian dance-duo Charlotte Adigéry & Bolis Pupul will be bringing their brand of electronic music steeped in social commentary to Downtown Reykjavik this November. Whilst Anish Kumar will deliver a taste of his revered take on house music, one that pulls inspiration from every corner – from Brenda Lee to Hindi film soundtracks.

Celebrating creativity on both a local and worldwide scale, Iceland Airwaves will also offer a global stage to a range of beloved local artists, both honouring and supporting the local community and scenes. One addition from much closer to home is Inspector Spacetime, the Icelandic trio’s whose high energy rendition of noughties disco is irresistibly lovable. Alongside Inspector Spacetime comes Icelandic hip-hop duo, Úlfur Úlfur, who have spent 15 years developing their sound into something that is more than ordinary rap. Further Icelandic additions comes in the form of Klemens Hannigan – a composer, performer, artist, and carpenter based in Reykjavik – mostly known for his work with award-winning multimedia techno performance art project HATARI, where he composes and performs music, along with art direction of the project.

Iceland Airwaves is dedicated to booking gender-balanced line-ups as part of the festival’s ongoing work with Keychange, and having honoured the pledge just as soon as it was signed in 2019, gender-parity still remains a vital part of what the festival represents and the community of creatives that it reflects.

IMG 3165

Zambian media queen Mutale Melissa Mwanza unveils a trailblazing path in entertainment. Kitwe native and renowned media personality, Mutale Melissa Mwanza, age 36, has made her name synonymous with leading entertainment in Zambia. Since breaking onto the scene in 2008 with a four-year stint on the breakfast show at Flava FM radio, Mutale has become a tour de force within the industry, known affectionately by her fans as the “Queen of Zambian Entertainment”.

Mutale’s first taste of the limelight came with her impressive tenure at Flava FM, which served as a springboard into a series of successful programs. She has captivated audiences as the dynamic force behind six popular shows, including ‘The Biggie’ on Flava FM, ‘Good Morning Africa’ and ‘Kumwesu’ on Africa Magic, ‘The Red Hot Breakfast’ on Hot FM, ‘Tuvwange Lifestyle’ on Zambezi Magic, and ‘Will He Say Yes Zambia’ on Honey Tv.

Her visionary approach in the media world is perhaps best exemplified by her Reality TV show “Mutale Mwanza Unscripted” on Zambezi Magic. The concept, which was birthed from Mutale’s creativity, offers viewers a vibrant mix of lifestyle content, fashion, and a front-row seat into Mutale Mwanza’s life, cementing her role not only as a media personality but also as an influential content creator and reality TV star. Also, the series is self-produced under the supervision of Mutale Mwanza Media. Dubbed the Queen of Zambian Entertainment, Mutale Mwanza does not merely wear the crown on account of her success and influence. With the status of being the most followed female entertainer in Zambia, she harbours the proud distinction of being the only female in the nation to have a self-produced reality show broadcast on Zambezi Magic.

Off-screen, Mutale’s influence reaches into the lives of the youth through her philanthropy. The “Mutale Mwanza Scholarship” is a testament to her commitment to education and upliftment, having already opened doors for two undergraduates currently studying at Cavendish University.

Through the course of her illustrious career, Mutale has earned considerable honors and accolades, including the enviable “Most Fashionable Female Celebrity” award and the “Most Influential Personality Of The Year” award, both hosted by Diamond TV. Such recognitions do not merely celebrate her fame and style but underscore her exceptional role as a shaping force in Zambian culture and media. Mutale Mwanza’s journey is far from over, and as she continues to rewrite the script for what a media personality can be, Africa watches with pride and anticipation for what is yet to come.
