[2:19-5:24] Following that we'll discuss, what exactly cloud computing is and the types of cloud computing: Infrastructure As A Service (IaaS), Platform As A Service (PaaS) and Software As A Service (SaaS) further extending to serverless architecture, Functions As A Service (FaaS).

We will also discuss the evolution of cloud computing, extending to fog computing and edge computing!
