Aim
The advent of Cloud Computing is changing the way applications, services and utility infrastructure can become available, for an increasingly large range of use scenarios. The most evident manifestation of this phenomenon shines in the ubiquitous commodities that the average citizen has at their fingertip, for emails, calendars, chats, and data repositories.
This short course illustrates the origin of the Cloud Computing, the technology stack that enables to enact it, and examples of concrete applications.
PhD students in the BMCS program may want to familiarize themselves with the meaning, origin and future direction of the revolution brought forward by Cloud Computing.

Syllabus
The course will take a discursive journey over the origin of Cloud Computing, the technical requirements that enable it, and will conclude illustrating some use scenarios that should be familiar to the students, and future challenges that lay ahead.

Course requirements (if any)
The course intentionally places no restrictions on the background knowledge of participants.

Exam modality
The course requires no exam.
