The Read Aloud Cloud (Wiley)
Friday, 25 September 2020

This book of cartoons and rhymes, subtitled "An Innocent's Guide to the Tech Inside" aims to explain cloud computing for non-techies in an amusing way. Forrest Brazeal, creator of the popular "FaaS and Furious" webcomic, takes his readers on a tour through the past, present and future of cloud computing, from mainframes to serverless and from the Internet of Things to artificial intelligence. In Brazeal's world, cloud computing space is a jungle filled with prehistoric beasts, while a data breach looks like a neo-noir nightmare full of turned-up coat collars and rain-soaked alleys.
