JaxJug

Did you know JaxJug meets the same day Gatorjug does? This month, Carol MacDonald is giving a talk. I asked her whether it would work for her to give the same Apache Spark talk at our GatorJug either the day before or after. That wasn't convenient, but she offered to do it 8/20 for Orlandojug. So stay tuned as I see whether that will work. Meanwhile, she said it would be ok for me to give her presentation for GatorJug! Check it out on the JaxJug site. Sound good? Let me know of presenters,…See More

HowStuffWorks "How Cloud Computing Works"

In a cloud computing system, there's a significant workload shift. Local computers no longer have to do all the heavy lifting when it comes to running applications. The network of computers that make up the cloud handles them instead. Hardware and software demands on the user's side decrease. The only thing the user's computer needs to be able to run is the cloud computing system's interface software, which can be as simple as a Web browser, and the cloud's network takes care of the rest...
