Cloud Computing 101: From basics to building (see description - set up your laptop first!)

If you’ve always been curious about the cloud, or have had questions about how to start building in the cloud, this talk is for you! You’ll learn what the different resources and services are available in the cloud, when to use them, and how to deploy them in the cloud. You’ll also learn how to solve common challenges via cloud compute. You’ll get an overview of Infrastructure as a Service, Platform as a Service, and Software as a Service and how each service can be used when you build on the cloud as well as tips on how to best set up your cloud security. We’ll also do an infrastructure as code demo with Linode and Terraform.

This workshop is interactive, and you’ll use tools like Linode and Terraform to set up real servers! Make sure to review the workshop instructions before you get here, and register for a free Linode account ahehad of time so that you can participate!
