More Information and Description: The cloud is an integral part of modern computing. It is a fancy name for the huge network of computers that host much of modern web infrastructure, but you can also harness all of that computing power for running analyses that would take days, weeks, or even years on your local computer. In this two hour workshop, an overview of what the cloud is and how you can begin to use it will be discussed.
