6/1/2018 - Understanding and Using “The Cloud” on June 15, 2018

On Friday, June 15, 2018 from 2-4pm in the Kingsley Room of the Southbury Public Library, Mike Ingber will discuss and demonstrate how to understand and use the Cloud, or sharing data and programs over the internet.

This lecture and demonstration will address the questions of what is the Cloud and what can be done with it. “The Cloud” refers to the sharing of data and programs over the Internet. Common examples of using the Cloud include: sharing files or photos, backing up important data using Carbonite, keeping track of your schedule using Google Calendar, using online versions of Word, Excel, or PowerPoint, using Google Docs to create and collaborate on documents, using online versions of popular programs such as Quickbooks, using Amazon to access your music library from anywhere, and more. Concepts and usage of the Cloud will be demonstrated with a Windows PC, with a tablet, and with a Chromebook (a popular, lower-cost, easy-to-use alternative to traditional laptops). Anyone interested is invited to come to this demonstration and discussion and finally understand what is meant by “The Cloud” and what it can do.
