Cloud Computing is taking over the world. With a few clicks any person can bring up an end-to-end infrastructure for something as complex as a Big Data/IoT and Machine Learning pipelines or something simple like storage. It is also a blessing for those of us who desire to rapidly prototype an idea. This is revolutionary because it is one of the key components for the Democratization of technology. From big companies like IBM, Amazon, Microsoft, Google and Rackspace to open source alternatives like Open Stack, the choices and applications are many. The West Michigan Cloud Computing (WMCC) group is an informal gathering of individuals with a focus on discussing cloud computing from various perspectives. We welcome people from all domains and experience levels to come and share their knowledge and best practices, drive innovation by exchanging ideas and network in the community.
