Who is this class for: This course is designed to give you a comprehensive view of the cloud computing landscape. our assumption is that you already have a working knowledge of computer science. Even though the course does not involve much of programming exercises (we do have one tutorial you can try to follow and learn), we expect the student to have some prior exposure to computers particularly in enterprise backend and server environments.

Really good course for distributed funda!

Well structured course. Gives a good overview of the basics of cloud computing. couple of typos in the transcripts. will flag errors in future courses

I would like to recommend the course for everybody to want get good knowledge in cloud technology. It's help me a lot to figure out the market trends. From now on, I got a big picture about the differents types of the clould services. I very excited to the next step. I also to hope you enjoy it.

At the start of Week 1, the course was a bit boring (too slow, too easy), but things were becoming more and more interesting: We were able to see many up-to-date technologies used in companies, several protocols, market tendencies, many competitors/actors,

I recommend to students to open an account at AWS, Azure, GoogleCompute and create their own exercises (it is mostly free for limited usage).
