Cloud Computing Teaching This article discusses the teaching of cloud computing in a software engineering course. It suggests that all courses should have some material introducing students to cloud computing, that practical teaching should focus on Platform as a Service and that there is scope for a graduate course in cloud software engineering covering map-reduce. Teaching cloud computing:
Nimbus, from the Latin for "dark cloud", is an anachronistic term for the type of cloud now classified as the nimbostratus cloud. Nimbus also may refer to:
