The world of cloud computing is big business, but for people new to it things can be quite daunting. In this session we will give a gentle introduction to what cloud computing is, its benefits and some of the key questions you may want to ask when considering it.
If you don’t know your AWS from your GCP or your Docker from your Kubernetes, fear not, as this session will go through the options available, what they do and how they work. We will also cover how the use of cloud can give you access to a variety of services including AI and Machine Learning.
