So you received word that cloud is now a priority for your organization. The challenge is how do you get your team cloud-ready?
"The cloud is changing so rapidly there's no book you can buy to get up to speed," says Ross Lambert, software architect and development lead for electricity storage provider Demand Energy Networks.
Lambert faced the problem himself when his company decided to migrate applications to a virtual private cloud. Needing to quickly amass as much knowledge as possible, he signed up for free or low-cost accounts at numerous cloud-based service providers, including Amazon Web Services (AWS).
