Exploring Uses of Cloud Computing in the Computer Science Curriculum

Speakers: Laurie White, Ryan Matsumoto, Wes Chun, Charles Engelke, Tim Swast, Marc Cohen

Cloud computing makes a wide variety of computing resources available to every student. In this workshop, faculty will have the opportunity to get hands-on experience with a variety of cloud technologies, from Infrastructure as a Service launching a Virtual Machine in the cloud to Software as a Service, using pre-trained Machine Learning Models. Participants will have the opportunity to discuss how these can be used in a variety of classes. No previous cloud experience is assumed but there will be some coverage of advanced topics for those who have some cloud experience. The morning of this session will provide general background and the afternoon will do deep dives into serverless computing and using the cloud for machine learning. This event is taking place barring any additional updates from SIGCSE. Please note, there will be some slight adjustments to the agenda and Google teams will update this event as soon as possible. If you have any questions, please reach out to Laurie White via the Whova app.
