The D-Lab has announced the formation of a new Cloud Computing Working Group starting in Fall 2015, in collaboration with the Berkeley Research Computing (BRC) program, to bring researchers and staff together to tackle the challenges of computing in the cloud. The bi-weekly sessions will be hosted in the D-Lab’s collaborative learning space

The group will coordinate talks and trainings focused on cloud computing services such as Amazon Web Services (AWS), Microsoft Azure, and Google Cloud Platform. The specific activities and topics will depend on the interests and needs of the members, including virtual machines, docker containers, high performance computing, and related topics.

The group is open to people of all skill levels and the activities in subgroups will accommodate interests from Absolute Beginner to Seasoned Pro. Mentors and consultants who have experience with cloud computing will be available during the sessions to work with members of the group.

The first session is scheduled for 4-6pm on Thursday, September 3rd, 2015 to kick-off the group with snacks, beverages, and a chance to mingle with other researchers and staff interested in cloud computing. We hope you'll join us then in 356 Barrows Hall.
