Cloud Computing to begginers

What is cloud computing?

Imagine you have a computer that you use at home. You have some files and programs stored on it and you can use them whenever you need to.

Now imagine you could access the same files and programs from any device with Internet access, like a library computer or a friend's laptop.

That's the basic idea behind cloud computing.

Instead of having your own computer at home with all your files and programs, you can access them from anywhere through the Internet.

That way, you don't have to worry about storage space, updates, or technical problems because all of that is taken care of by the company providing the cloud computing service.

Think of it as having a very big and powerful computer in the sky that you can use whenever you want!

Big companies that use it

  • Netflix
  • Airbnb
  • Spotify
  • Dropbox
  • Instagram
  • Uber

Cloud computing made the existence of big companies possible because it allowed them to publish their ideas more easily and accessible.

Before the cloud, companies had to invest in complex servers. Now the process has been simplified and they only pay for what they use.

This means that companies can focus on their core businesses.

Why learn Cloud Computing

Cloud computing is an amazing field full of opportunities for beginners! Imagine being able to work for one of those incredible big companies that use the cloud, or creating your own amazing services without having to pay a fortune.
