Cloud Computing Workshop
Spring 2020 IRisk Lab Hack Nights
Date and Time: Wednesday, April 22, 2020, 6:00 PM (CST)
Abstract: In this presentation, you’ll get a light introduction to the public cloud. You’ll learn concepts like infrastructure-as-code, high availability, and serverless. You’ll see a real-world example of how the public cloud makes it easy to conduct analyses that don’t work well on your local machine. This will be a highly interactive demo, where attendees are encouraged to interrupt the presenter and ask questions.
