What is the cloud? If you have trouble answering this question, you're not alone. In this course, we'll explore how the cloud works, what drives its incredible growth, and how you can use cloud services. You'll look at cloud networking, learn about the differences between kinds of public, private, and hybrid clouds, and examine the concept of big data. You'll also see how Facebook and Twitter contribute to the cloud, and how start-ups can use social media to shake things up like never before. And don't worry if you're not tech-savvy! We'll relate the cloud to things you encounter every day, using practical, non-technical language.
