Cloud Computing 101: From Building to Basics (Infobip Shift Miami 2024)

"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, how each service can be used when you build on the cloud, and tips on how to best set up your cloud security. We’ll also do an infrastructure as a 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 ahead of time so that you can participate!

This workshop focuses on infrastructure as code, using APIs to build your infrastructure rather than your cloud computing console."
