Event Details

What is IIT on da Cloud?

The student organization, ITMO (Information Technology and Management Organization), is proud to present a 4 day event (Octobery 25-28) where students can learn about cloud computing, build the infrastructure of a private cloud, and create applications that can run on it. Recently, cloud computing has been used as a popular marketing term to attract its target market, which has led to several misconceptions. Our goal is to help educate students about cloud computing and give them hands-on experience using this technology.

 

Why Should you Attend?

  • Curious about how applications like Dropbox or Netflix work? Come and see what cloud computing is all about. (previous experience, not required)
  • Some of our sponsoring companies are looking for interns or future employees. Show your skills and get hired! 
  • Gain valuable experience with cloud computing
  • Network with IT professionals
  • Meet other students
  • WIN PRIZES!!
