Last month Meenakshi Sundaresan of IIT Madras-DOMS invited me to give a guest lecture on Cloud Computing for the 2nd year students. February 25th, 2011 was the date of my guest lecture.
I assumed that the students knew very little or nothing about Cloud computing and since the topic is also very technical in nature, I decided to keep the presentation very general and humorous. The initial idea was to cover the broad aspects of Cloud computing, deployment types and offerings, but to my surprise I found many of the students were already exposed to cloud computing before. I requested them to be very interactive during the presentation, so that my lecture can be relevant to both newbie’s and experienced ones of the cloud computing.
The presentation and interactions went very well for nearly 2 hours and some of the students asked me very good questions on Cloud computing which made me believe that I did not bore them to death.
I really enjoyed the experience and level of interest the students of IIT-DOMS (India’s future managers) had on the topic. I have promised them with more presentations on emerging topics like Cloud, Social and Mobile in future. “I will be back “.Group Photo :
