our history & evolution (2008 … 2020)

2008 ish :   HCCUG = Houston Cloud & Cluster User Group — Cloud Computing was in its infancy and was building upon Clusters (that have been around forever) was a closed group as members were under NDA … and Microsoft's Cloud was still in its codename/pre-release phase, "Red Dog",  that later became Azure.

2010 :  transitioned name (HCCUG=Houston Cloud Computing User Group) — open to all, at-no-charge. and welcomed David Cravey's C++ User Group.

2017 :  we revamped and blew up (from <300 in Jan to ~1K members in 1 year) and … began laying the foundation for the next wave

2018 :  continued the gradual roll out of new & improved options laying & expanding the foundation for the next wave

2019 launched & managed 3 official/recognized user groups, and added the C while continuing to serve the Houston Cloud Computing User Group,  while adding new services and more

2020:  Covid, we shifted focus to helping 1:1 in our community  [details are confidential as it was 1:1 and we are pro-privacy].

2021 onwards …  slew of launches of new & streamlined offerings with caution as SAFETY is our #1 priority for all … while continuing our vision!

In a world that shies away from the very values that make us … 

this community effort of ours is steadily growing over 12+ years because our friends & volunteers of various Faiths support our efforts to giveback … thus personifying  giveback/their-Faith … and are living examples of  "Faith unites … Religion divides"  —  from The_Moreign_Dogma™

our founders & friends/volunteers  …  are folks who already giveback to the community, at no charge, without expecting anything in return!  Sharing their time & decades of (L)earned experience with the community via other events & user-groups When they giveback via our efforts,  we consider them as being "for us" & "with us" and sincerely appreciate them — some mentioned below, many not mentioned!
