Do you have some great ideas, but lack the computing resources to really exercise them? If you're an academic, researcher, non-profit, entrepreneur or general innovator, we can help.

In this talk we'll provide an introduction to cloud computing and go into OpenStack and how to use it. We'll also demonstrate and show you how to freely access Cybera’s Rapid Access Cloud, which provides Alberta-based cloud computing resources for Albertans to test and prototype their ideas.

In this workshop you will learn:

•What kinds of projects are suitable for cloud
