Cloud computing is a major development in the IT industry and has a huge impact on how software solutions are developed, deployed and delivered via the web. By studying cloud computing, you’ll learn about the concepts and technologies involved such as virtualisation, enterprise networks and system security, and develop the expertise to work in this field.
I'm passionate about learning more about computers because there is so much to learn every minute.
