February 13th at the next AITP meeting we are excited to have Gerald
Marquis who will discuss the genesis of Cloud computing. In real life
if the clouds descend and meet the ground we call it fog. Gerald will
also discuss what Fog computing is which is a recent concept designed
to deal with some of the drawbacks of the cloud computing
infrastructure. Yes you read it here first, cloud computing isnít a one
