A Penn College alumnus recently returned to his roots to address current information technology students.

Abramczyk identified several cloud computing technologies and shared the benefits of using a serverless approach rather than monolithic architectures.

“Erik’s presentation provided students with insight on real-world developments and helped increase their understanding of the value of serverless architecture solutions,” said Alicia L. McNett, assistant professor of computer information technology. “It’s important that students have opportunities such as Erik’s visit to learn why and how companies are leveraging these technologies. Industry connections are important in preparing students for careers in a changing IT landscape.”
