Determing Average Storage Costs via Azure with Python

About a month ago, a photographer (and filmmaker in the making) friend approached me about hosting in Azure a copy of his media for safekeeping, and wanted to also understand an average cost over time as they'd add more files to the Storage Account. Funnily enough, this is a small application script that I had written before for the green office, along with a script that I had integrated into one of my monthly to-be-automated tasks here in the red office. I figured I's share the Simple Python script, seeing that despite some of the excellent documentation provided by Microsoft, there are multiple ways to approach the solution which can easily be mangled and confused with other solutions and recommendations.

Leveraging Functional Programming for Data Parsing

For much of January, a key deliverable of the team was to parse and send data between critical systems; a simple enough task really when worded like that. The complexity arose from the included business requirements and edge cases which drove the sprint estimate points from a capable `3` to a concerning `8`, knowing that only a single developer would be focused on this for 100% of their sprint until a POC to be demonstrated came from their efforts. Only then, could the team help carry the torch and make decisions based on the challenges encountered.

Closing Two Weeks Completed of the 100 Days of Code Challenge

Wow, how quickly two weeks are passing by while you're busy enjoying every hour you can with code, technology, people, and for once, the weather. I'm even more surprised to see that I was able to maintain a small git commit streak (10 days, which was cut yesterday, more on that below) which is damn incredible considering that I spent 90% of my time outside of work away from a keyboard. I told myself that I would try my hardest to still learn and implement what I could while travelling, opting to go deep into the documentation (which I will include from what I can put from the various Git commits and search history below) and learning what it means to write `Pythonic` code.
