Today was a new set of experiences for us in our services corps assignment. As part of a community out-reach element to our visit, we spent time today speaking to university students at a Cloud Camp, sponsored by IBM.
I had the great honor of speaking to the students about Cloud Computing and the benefits which this concept is bringing to Information Technology providers world-wide. This is the first time that I had to speak to an audience through an interpreter – I am very greatful to Anh for her work to provide Vietnamese interpretation of my presentation.
I had a tough act to follow when I did my talk today. Before me was a musical performance by two students at the university. While I didn't understand any of the words of the song, the vocal and guitar were very well done and pleasant to listen to.
After the presentation in the morning, we had some free time in the afternoon. With the beach so close to our hotel, Dave Hagerman, another member of the Executive Service Corps team, and myself headed out to the beach area to enjoy a great lunch al fresco followed by a relaxing time on the beach. The white sand of the beaches here is incredible so if you're a beach lover, Da Nang should be on your list to visit!
