Machine Learning Workshop for Developers – Persontyle

The Right Mix of Theory and Hands-on Work

The workshop is agnostic and features the best open source Python libraries (Pandas, scikit-learn, SKLL), APIs and ML-as-a-Service platforms (Microsoft Azure ML & Cortana Intelligence Suite, Amazon ML, BigML) for developers getting started in Machine Learning. It focuses on only two learning techniques, which turn out to be the most commonly used in practice: decision trees and ensembles.

Workshop is 2 day long and comprises 8 modules of 3 blocks of 30’ each—including time for questions. Blocks are either Theory or Exercise, with at least one Exercise per module. The goal is to make you operational with machine learning at the end of the workshop.
