Description

ML development brings many new complexities beyond the traditional software development lifecycle. Unlike in traditional software development, ML developers want to try multiple algorithms, tools and parameters to get the best results, and they need to track this information to reproduce work. In addition, developers need to use many distinct systems to productionize models.

Jules Damji walks you through MLflow, an open source project that simplifies the entire ML lifecycle, to solve this problem. MLflow introduces simple abstractions to package reproducible projects, track results, and encapsulate models that can be used with many existing tools, accelerating the ML lifecycle for organizations of any size.

Prerequisite knowledge

  • General knowledge of Python
  • A basic understanding of machine learning concepts

Materials or downloads needed in advance

  • A laptop with 8–16 GB of memory with Chrome or Firefox browsers installed
  • A preregistration for the Databricks Community Edition

What you'll learn

  • Understand the three main components of open source MLflow (MLflow Tracking, MLflow Projects, and MLflow Models) and how each help address challenges of the ML lifecycle
  • Learn how to use MLflow Tracking to record and query experiments (code, data, config, and results), how to use MLflow Projects packaging format to reproduce runs, and how to use MLflow Models general format to send models to diverse deployment tools

Hello Pete,

Yes, indeed!

I fixed it this AM and pushed it. So just git pull should fix it in your cloned environment.

Cheers

Hi I discovered a typo in the req.txt.

It should require scikit-learn not sckit-learn

I have also uploaded the zip file on the google drive. Worst case you can down download and unzip it.

All you need is a copy of the labs and data.

Alternatively, you could not Download as a zip file.
Alternatively, go to this URL, click on “Clone or Download” button and unpzip it. Since you are not committing anything back, you should be fine just having a copy of the files.

Are you git a permission denied to clone it?

did use try git clone git@github.com:dmatrix/spark-saturday.git

or git clone git@github.com:dmatrix/spark-saturday.git

Either should work. this is a public git and many have cloned and forked it too.
