AI Bootcamp for Professional AI Developers

Master your skills in Microsoft’s AI-oriented services.



Duration: 16 hours


Level: Intermediate



This workshop offers hands-on activities that develop proficiency in AI-oriented workflows leveraging Azure Machine Learning Workbench and Services, the Team Data Science Process, Visual Studio Team Services, Azure Batch AI, and Azure Container Services.

What does this course cover?

Understand and use the Team Data Science Process (TDSP) to clearly define business goals and success criteria
– Use a code-repository system with the Azure Machine Learning Workbench using the TDSP structure
– Create an example environment
– Use the TDSP and AMLS for data acquisition and understanding
– Use the TDSP and AMLS for creating an experiment with a model and evaluation of models
– Use the TDSP and AMLS for deployment
– Use the TDSP and AMLS for project close-out and customer acceptance
– Execute Data preparation workflows and train your models on remote Data Science Virtual Machines (with or without GPUs) and HDInsight Clusters running Spark
– Manage and compare models with Azure Machine Learning
– Explore hyper-parameters on Spark using Azure Machine Learning
– Leverage Batch AI training for parallel training on GPUs
– Deploy and Consume a scoring service on Azure Container Service
– Collect and Analyze data from a scoring service in production to progress the data science lifecycle.

Who is this course designed for?

This workshop is intended for AI Developers on Azure. Since this is only a short workshop, there are certain things you need before you arrive.

Pre-requisites: What do you need to know?

Important! You must complete the following installations and requirements before attending the boot camp:

In preparation for the upcoming Machine Learning Boot Camp, there are a few things you need to do to be able to take the class. These activities take about 2.5 hours in total, and must be completed prior to showing up for the event. Failure to do so will put you begind the rest of the class and divert your time and attention from the material covered throughout the bootcamp. As proof you have completed the steps below, you must bring the “Web Service ID” code (described below) with you to sign-in at the event.

What you will need:

  • A Microsoft Azure account where you can create resources (Either an organization account, an MSDN subscription account, a Trial Account, or an account provided by your company)
  • A Microsoft Azure Machine Learning Experimentation and Model Management Account
  • A local Windows laptop where you can install software or a Windows Data Science Virtual Machine (Size D4sV3 minimum is required)


All our courses can be offered as a private delivery and tailored for your team's specific needs
