Although he doesn’t feel that “experienced,” Larry started working in the IT industry when it was cool to code IBM Assembler and NEAT/3 on punch cards and “cloud computing” meant the night shift was smoking something in the data center.

He’s also an enthusiastic evangelist of the opportunities cloud computing brings to all organizations around the world.
