No matter what your role is, if you work in technology, cloud computing is affecting you. This course provides a broad introduction to all aspects of cloud computing.

What you'll learn

Hello! My name is David Chappell, and I’m the author of Cloud Computing: The Big Picture, here at Pluralsight.

You hear a lot about cloud computing these days. Ever wonder what that means, and where it fits into your daily job?

That’s what this course is designed to teach you. You’ll explore applications in the cloud (commonly called Software as a Service, or SaaS), an overview of cloud platforms, including Amazon Web Services and Microsoft Azure, as well as private clouds (bringing cloud technology on premises). By the time you’re done, you’ll know what cloud computing is all about and be ready to start exploring specific implementations.

It’s all ready and waiting for you – jump in whenever you’re ready, and thanks for visiting me here at Pluralsight.
