Marc Andreessen, co-author of Mosaic and founder of Netscape, speculates: “I think that kids coming out of college over the next several years are going to wonder why anyone ever built apps for anything other than ‘the cloud’…just like they already wonder why anyone runs any software that you can’t get to through a browser.”
Given the cloud’s significant place in our near future, organizations have begun using courseware systems to teach students and professionals how to build applications using cloud based platforms. Operation Badar is a nonprofit educational organization whose goal is to spread knowledge about cloud computing, and in the future, to create cloud based courseware systems to communicate cheaply with large numbers of students. The movement is working to address the third-world digital divide by providing cloud computing courseware systems and resources for a low cost.
