The cloud is here, and it’s going to change everything, from how you use your computer to what you get done.
We spoke with computer scientist and researcher John P Kaysers about what it means for cloud computing and what it’s like to build software on top of the cloud.
Kicks off the second part of this three-part series.
Keeser has been researching the future of cloud computing since the late ’90s.
He’s been looking into how we interact with computers and how they’re using cloud computing to build and run the kinds of applications that have a huge impact on the way we work and live.
The cloud in its current form has been the target of a lot of research by people like Google and Facebook, who are working to help people use cloud computing in ways that will be more efficient, cheaper, and more reliable.
Kells says we’re still a long way from cloud computing being fully implemented.
“The cloud is still in its infancy,” he says.
“It’s still in the early stages of implementation.
There’s no way to say whether or not it’s really going to be a solution for the long term.
We’ll see what comes next.”
In the meantime, the way you work is changing, Kayses says.
It’s all about what we do with our computers, whether it’s working with them on a project or just sitting on our couch with them.
“We’ve been able to do things with computers that we wouldn’t be able to with other kinds of computers, but we’ve also been able and will continue to be able, with our smartphones and tablets, to do more of the same tasks that we’d be able do with other types of computers,” he adds.
“So, it’s a great time to be working with computers.”
For example, you can use a smartphone to control a car.
You can also use a computer as a projector or keyboard.
You’re not limited to just using your smartphone or tablet to do one task.
“In the next few years, there’s going be so many different ways to interact with your computer, that the traditional way is going to become obsolete,” Kays says.
In other words, the cloud is changing everything, and we’re going to have to figure out how to adapt to it.
But it’s not just the technology.
Kates says the way that we interact on a daily basis with computers is changing as well.
Kills explains how a lot the software we build for our personal computers, from operating systems to video games, are built on top.
We use a lot more of what we call the cloud-based APIs, or third-party libraries.
“You have all these APIs in your application that we can’t access on our own,” Kills says.
The fact that these APIs are accessible to the cloud makes it much easier for a lot less work to be done on those APIs.
In fact, these APIs make it so easy to create applications that are even more efficient and more secure than their source code.
“What we do is we just load in this library, and then we load it on top and that’s how the application works,” Kyser says.
And that library is where the actual work actually happens.
“Our app code is really all written in the cloud,” Kates adds.
That’s the cloud where the most of our application work is done.
In the future, that will shift to apps built on other cloud services, which could be much more reliable, but they also won’t be as fast as the source code that gets used in those applications.
Kysers says it’s this type of thinking that he’s been building on for the past decade, using research he’s done with Facebook, Google, and others.
Kows says that it’s important to keep in mind that there are always new opportunities for the cloud, and that we are seeing an unprecedented shift in how we work.
For example: The cloud’s power will grow.
“There will be massive changes to how we’re interacting with the cloud and how our computing is going forward,” he notes.
“That’s because we’ve been moving to more cloud-centric architectures, with less of a focus on source code and more of a emphasis on the cloud.”
This means that developers will have more time to focus on making the apps they want to build.
But that also means that the developers who are already working on those apps will be able put their focus on building the best apps for the platforms they’re working on.
Kies says that these cloud-focused apps are the ones that are likely to win in the long run.
And there’s already an effort to build more apps on top the cloud to make it easier for developers to build applications that work across a wide range of platforms.
This is especially important when it comes to mobile devices, where the developers will be working on the most popular platforms and will be using the most modern cloud
