Now it’s my turn - thank you to the countless Microsoft employees, Most Valuable Professionals, community people and most of all family (first ones I told) and friends that have supported me on giving back! #MVPBuzz lnkd.in/dBmunYJP
1) Biggest lessons I've learned (MVP edition) there is still a 5,000 limit on following people on Twitter until you have that many followers, (see reference here: help.twitter.com/en/rules-and-p…) but no limit to followers on LinkedIn. 1/13
2) besides your profile bio (limited characters) you only can "pin" one tweet which stays at the top of your profile, but you can add others to this 1st tweet & they stay up there as well. Use the + in the lower right to add tweets & they are treated as one or a collection 2/13

3) adding alt text to an image or video is a way to be more inclusive AND another way to get more words on Twitter (1,000!). The image or video description (characters) is in addition to your tweet characters! Inclusiveness has another benefit & just makes everything better 3/13

1/ My #IoT Telegraph - A thread:
At the end of my talk @NottsTechfast on "The History of IoT", I closed with a show stopper demo. I built a homebrew Telegraph from wood, nails, spring, wire and other components I had around the house. @msdevUK, @MSIoTDevs @MicrosoftIoT #MVPBuzz
2/ The basic circuit diagram of the Telegraph is shown here. The Transmitter side has three 1.5v AA Batteries which connect through the rudimentary Morse Button out to an Electromagnet at the receiver.
3/ The receiver side has two 1.5v AAA batteries connected to three nails. The angled nail is attracted to the Electromagnet when it's activated, closing the circuit and activating the sounder.

I needed a space to deploy simple web page over weekend. Requirements:
- static web page
- custom domain (apex)
- HTTPS enabled.

I gave a try to #Azure storage as a web hosting. Thread: (hint: documentation sucks at least a bit).
1/
Storage: simple, yet useful service in all #cloud. #Azure storage host static website:
Pro: simple, cheap, custom domain
Con: No HTTPS for custom domain
Basic setup:
docs.microsoft.com/en-us/azure/st…
- Create storage account
- Enable web hosting
- Change public access level
Done. Works.
I have DNS zone on #Azure DNS. No apex ("naked") domain support. How to overcome HTTPS and custom zone support?
Go for #Azure CDN service - in my case, Verizon premium (rules). It might take some time to provision it.
Basic setup: docs.microsoft.com/en-us/azure/cd…

I just sepent 40min on-boarding first teach in y kids school to #office365 @MicrosoftTeams - it doesn't have to be Microsoft, Google has similar offer. As IT we can help. Schools has little staff and might not be prepared.

1/n
@MicrosoftTeams How? It takes 15min to start entire tenant for #office365 education - go here; microsoft.com/en-us/educatio…

No credit card required, no domain required - they can work for a while on on.microsoft.com if you ask me

2/n
Then go create some users - there are teacher licenses and students licenses. There are ready scripts to do it in bulk.
