## Imagine you could program node.js, python or even Brainfuck without installing it. Cloud development lets you either work with a browser-based IDE or transfers your source code in real-time to the cloud. By moving your dev runtime from localhost to the cloud, you can get started within seconds and always have an online prototype.
## What's the roadmap? In this workshop, you will get to know what cloud development is and how to use a cloud development platform to program directly in the cloud to build highly scalable micro service systems. You will be able to use your favorite programming language to build a small cloud-based system. You will get free cloud resources during the workshop and you can keep using them even after the GPN.
## Do I need to use a browser-based IDE? What about VIM? Don't worry, you will be able to use your favorite editor, even VIM works like a charm.
