About the session:
In the previous session, I shared with you what data science means for software engineers and why and how I made this transition. Then I discussed why it is easiest than ever for developers to make this shift. Finally, I gave an introduction to machine learning. In this session, I'll start with a short introduction to machine learning and then will show you how to build a model using Azure Machine Learning. Finally, if time permits, I'll discuss the ways you can deploy the model into production. This session is recommended to software engineers or aspiring data scientists who are thinking about a career change or just want to get their feet wet.
