Hello, We are three computer science students that entered a competition for cloud computing. We have no previous knowledge of cloud computing. All we know is Java, C++, C, Perl and bash. We need to design a cloud computing system that will require us to simulate a network on the cloud then code what we have in mind on that network. We need to write code that will be able to utilize our skills in the programming languages/tools that we know. So far our research is telling us that we should use Jclouds on Openstack. However, we are not sure where to begin. I have found a book called OpenStack Cloud Computing Cookbook 2012. Would that help? If so, it still is not enough. We still need another book or website to learn Jclouds.

Please help, Thank you.

JClouds is a java library that helps you connect to various IaaS such as AWS, Openstack, Cloudstack et al. If you have already decided on Openstack, consider installing devstack all-in-one setup on a linux box/VM to make it easier to demonstrate to create and configure instances and communicate with Neutron, Openstack's networking component. You may also consider enabling Swift object-store to store files, objects.
