Free Book: Azure Machine Learning in a Weekend
By Ajit Jaokar and Ayse Mutlu.
Exclusively for Data Science Central members, with free access. You can download this book (PDF) here.
This tutorial is the second book in the ‘in a weekend’ series – after Classification and Regression in a weekend. The idea of the ‘in a weekend’ series of books is to study one complex section of code in a weekend to master the concept. Cloud computing changes the development paradigm. Specifically, it combines development and deployment (the DevOps approach). In complex environments, the developer has to know more than the coding. Rather, she has to be familiar with both the data engineering and the DevOps. This book helps you to get started with coding a complex AI application for the Cloud(Azure).
