Azure Machine Learning with Amy Boyd (Cloud Advocate, Microsoft) – 05/03/2019

Tuesday 3th March from 6.30pm - Rebel Recruitment Office, Nottingham

What's it about?

Making your iOS apps accessible can seem more complicated than it needs to be. But, by following a few practical tips and tricks you can provide a great user experience for everyone and expand your test coverage by harnessing the power of native UI Tests

What will we be doing?

The software engineering life cycle is well established in the industry, from requirements, to design, build, deploy and maintain. Now it’s time to apply this to our machine learning projects. Azure Machine Learning is a platform for developing and deploying your machine learning models on Azure.
Use your favourite frameworks, libraries and tools to build and deploy your machine learning experiments with the help of the cloud.
In this workshop, we will look at the lifecycle of your projects: from data to model and model to consumption in the real world. You can follow along with code samples I will share, as well as using these examples to help you replicate this workshop with your own projects after the event.

What do we need to bring?

You will need to bring a laptop with a modern web browser
