Hi everyone. It’s me again. Andrea with two “As” and an “N” but not where you thiiiiink. (Shout out to all you She-Hulk fans - Wongers and Madisynn 4-ever).
Anyway, hope everyone is doing well. I assume you are all deep into college football and/or awaiting the arrival of pumpkin spice lattes. Even though it’s still 90+ degrees in Florida, every store I visit is filled with Halloween costumes and Thanksgiving decorations. I’m as excited for candy bars and turkey as the next person but can we at least wait until September 1 for the holiday push to begin! At least they haven’t started playing Here Comes “Santa Claus” yet.
Rod will be back next week, I promise. Thanks again for letting me crash the party.
Here’s a new way to learn KQL … join the Kusto Detective Agency! This is brilliant. It delivers a game-based approach to digging into the cloud’s query language.
Here’s how this works:
  • There are a total of five cases to solve.
  • Cases are released every two weeks, on Sundays
  • There are a limited number of prizes for those who solve the case first, BUT
  • A digital badge is given to every player who correctly solves a case
  • All previous cases will remain active for play even after the new cases are published
And, of course, keep working on your Must Learn KQL progress to get your certificate:
