            I currently work helpdesk and have been for about 6 years. I am looking to become more valuable, and I can't decide what route to take? Python is of interest, and so is PowerShell. What are some recommendations? Maybe something that would benefit a helpdesk position or even get into a network administrator.

            Objective: I am trying to build a custom service that will create VMs in Azure, based on inputs taken from a web interface. I want the backend code that interacts with Azure to be PowerShell.

            Ask: Hoping to find help with deciding the simplest architecture of tools to achieve this.

            What I have so far with my Limited Knowledge: I am new to Azure and Jenkins. I arrived at Jenkins coz it can run PowerShell and has API that can be called to trigger a job. Although integrating with it over the web seems problematic since its on-prem network. I hear it is possible using the VPN. For the Web, I hope to use Azure Web App with Python/Node.js that I can manage to make API calls to Jenkins.

            Is there a better way? I just need help getting the right directions; I will walk the way.

            Recently I've switched from GNU Bash to Oh My ZSH and I'm happy with the way I can customize the environment, picking between options by tab and seeing git status or hardware status while typing commands and a beautiful UI that's easy on eyes. Also ability to turn-off case-sensitivity comes in handy. I don't think if I will go back!

                  Jupyter Anaconda Pandas IPython

                  A great way to prototype your data analytic modules. The use of the package is simple and user-friendly and the migration from ipython to python is fairly simple: a lot of cleaning, but no more.

                  The negative aspect comes when you want to streamline your productive system or does CI with your anaconda environment: - most tools don't accept conda environments (as smoothly as pip requirements) - the conda environments (even with miniconda) have quite an overhead
