Authentication and Database Queries Using Teradata AppCenter REST Services

Teradata has a new product that is included in its Teradata Vantage offering: Teradata AppCenter. I’ve been excited and playing with it for quite some time since it looks modern (and since some customers have started adopting it). It is also modern under the hood — it uses Angular, microservices, Docker, Kubernetes, and many other bells and whistles.

Mengejar Aurora: Bagaimana Aurora Borealis Terjadi?

Mengejar Aurora: Bagaimana Aurora Borealis Terjadi?

Dear passengers,” kata sang kapten sambil mematikan lampu kabin. “In 10 seconds, if you’re sitting on the left side of the plane, you’ll see the Northern Lights from the window seat.”

Anjayyy!

Seketika itu juga, kabin penerbangan Norwegian Air itu riuh rendah. Semua penumpang celingukan mencoba melihat langit melalui jendela di sisi kiri pesawat. Mereka yang duduk di bangku kanan cuma bisa gigit jari di 10 menit pertama, sampai penumpang yang di sisi kiri puas melihat Northern Lights.

Canon EOS R and RF 28-70mm F/2 USM L Review

Canon EOS R and RF 28-70mm F/2 USM L Review

After using Fujifilm X-T20 for two years, I found two things with the camera that limited me in doing my photography style. The camera autofocus, when paired with wide-aperture lenses, can be unreliable in capturing movements. Also, the lenses I have don’t allow me some flexibility in focal length while maintaining really shallow depth of field at the same time. In summary, I like having a wide-aperture zoom lens, and the best that I can get is a 16-55 f/2.8 lens.

2 Years Shooting With Fujifilm X-T20

2 Years Shooting With Fujifilm X-T20

Moving to Copenhagen gave me a lot of free time for myself. I still remember the very first few days I working here: it was 5:30 PM, I was already home, and I did not know what to do! As an Indonesian, I was never used to having so much free time after work.

Rowing a boat after work hours with friends. Possible in Denmark.

So I decided to pick up photography again after several years, and started thinking to get a proper camera. “What kind of camera do you want?” I asked myself.

Backpacking di Eropa: Ljubljana, Bled, Hallstatt

Backpacking di Eropa: Ljubljana, Bled, Hallstatt

Sejak gue kecil, gue selalu pengen nyoba naik kereta di pegunungan Alpen. Seperti yang gue lihat di film-film, gue pengen naik kereta yang melewati pegunungan bersalju, sambil menikmati indahnya gunung berselimut salju lainnya di horizon…

Terus sambil menyeruput coklat hangat. Beuh.

Dibandingin berlibur di kota-kota besar, gue lebih pengen backpacking dan menikmati suasana desa-desa atau kota-kota kecil di Eropa yang tenang dan indah. Gue pengen menjelajahi kastil-kastil dan rumah-rumah tua di sana. Gue juga pengen mendaki gunung. Gue pengen melewati lembah, juga melihat sungai yang mengalir indah ke samudera. Siapa tahu nanti gue ketemu Ninja Hatori.
