I’m working with a new AWS account and I am moving to testing Boto3 to use the KMS service. I needed to make sure that the AWS account and secret keys were updated so ran aws configure to quickly update them.

For 18 months I’ve been working with Hadoop. Initially it was Hortonworks HDP on Windows then Hortonworks HDP on CentOS and for production we settled on Cloudera CDH5 on Red Hat. Recently we’ve been introduced to Spark and subsequently Scala which I am now in the process of skilling up on, the plan is to blog as I learn.
For the first entries I imagine it won’t be much more than the basic tutorial you could read elsewhere, however the plan is to get more detailed as I learn more.
I can’t introduce Scala better than Scala School so its worth taking a look at that.
I am going to use JetBrains IntelliJ IDEA for developing fuller applications, however for playing and learning you can download Spark for Hadoop in TAR format from the Spark Download Page and use the Spark shell.
I’m not a huge fan of Bing search engine, I’ve tried to use it but I don’t like the format of the search results and I don’t think it’s particularly good at finding relevant results either.
I do like Bing wallpapers, and I use Bing Desktop on my Windows laptop to update my desktop to Bings daily wallpaper.
Now that I’ve moved to a Mac I still want to get the picture, but the application is Windows only - so the script below will do the job for you. I’ve set it to download to the users picture folder ~/Pictures/bing-wallpapers just using the current date for the filename.
