"Cloud Computing and Other Stuff"

    On 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 size fits all solution. Come and listen to how cloud computing is responding to new challenges and how it may evolve in the coming years.
