The cloud powers everything: from worldwide web services to artificial intelligence. But how can we learn to use these services, and what are the implications we must consider?

In our Cloud Starter Event, we had the opportunity to introduce our technical 1st semester students to the offerings of the world’s biggest cloud providers: Amazon Web Services and Microsoft Azure. Representatives introduced the free student offers and learning paths, while professors showed important cloud use cases.

“We are happy that we could offer our students the opportunity to directly speak with the companies and experience what the cloud can do. With 100 students engaged live, it was an extraordinarily successful event that started the journey to new knowledge,” says Andreas Jakl, the event’s co-organiser and host.
