Cloud Computing for Kids
Yellow Circle’s goal is to provide free-to-use information technology platform for students to learn about the unique capabilities of cloud computing and cloud infrastructure.
Yellow Circle Inc. is a registered 501c3 tax-exempt nonprofit organization (Tax ID Number: 47-1945774). Its purpose is to provide a free-to-use information technology (IT) platform for students to learn about the capabilities of cloud computing and IT infrastructures. The company’s platform promotes increased learning by allowing students to apply their newly learned IT theories to create real world IT infrastructures in a non-production environment without having to worry about associated expenses.
Just when I thought that I was done answering all the questions regarding “SQL Injection” to my 12 year old son, he asks “So where can I test my SQL injection skills”. Yes, the answer to this question prompted me to create a small instance of Openstack cloud environment in my garage with just a few images and flavors, but the word spread and some of my son’s friends wanted to be creative with their computer ideas but no place to play. Now there is a small information technology infrastructure sandbox in the garage for my son and his friends to build on-demand virtual data centers with routers, networks, switches, load-balancers, firewalls, and virtual servers. Best of all, there is no one to tell them — “You are going to mess up the family computer”
Few months into this, demand outgrew the small setup in the garage, and Yellow Circle (A nonprofit organization) was started to make this learning experience open to everyone. Within three months of open beta-testing period, Yellow Circle had over 350 students from 100+ different countries building virtual data-centers with every component of a true IT infrastructure including routers, firewalls, servers, appliances, and load-balancers.
