MISHAWAKA-Bethel University has received a Labs for Industry Futures and Transformation (LIFT) grant to run a free Cloud Computing Boot Camp for students and members of the community. This boot camp has already run a few sessions and just started a new one on Jan. 18.
Some sessions are slightly different from others. One form is a basic overview of cloud computing on several different platforms, with the purpose of giving the participants a basic understanding. Other sessions help the participants become skilled and even certified in cloud computing. According to Professor of Computer Science Cathy Bareiss, Ph.D., this program is being used to help Michiana employees become equipped for the twenty-first century.
The current session is designed for participants to gain more information and an awareness of what cloud computing is. This summer a session will be run that is an intensive four-week program designed for participants to gain readiness for an apprenticeship, and is open to anyone, even high school students who may wish to join.
These sessions will run in phases through summer 2023, with three currently planned through that time. Bethel students are welcome to sign up for this session or any other one if they are interested. Four students are currently enrolled in the January 18 session, which runs from 6 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. every Tuesday night. Registration can be found at betheluniversity.edu/cloud-boot-camp.
