Bring your laptop to this session! Join members of the Cortana Analytics team for a hands-on workshop to practice building an experiment in Azure ML.This session will start with a short demo showing how to build an Azure ML experiment. You can follow along and build the experiment on your PC as the instructors explain what the experiment does, why the algorithms used were chosen, and key decisions in the experiment design. You'll then get 90 minutes to work on your own experiment. Depending on your experience level, you can:
Work your way through an online walkthrough (we'll provide pointers to several different tutorials)
Make changes to an existing experiment in the Azure ML Gallery to alter how it functions
Create a new experiment in the Azure ML Studio using an existing dataset
This was a fun one! I spent some time with Jimmy Bogard on his tremendously successful open source project called AutoMapper. If you have not heard of it then you have no doubt, like me, wasted precious keystrokes on manually converting from one object type to another by mapping properties in code. AutoMapper helps eliminate the need for that completely and goes a step further by even making queries to a database more compact and concise.
He also spends some time talking about what makes for great open source projects - oddly enough its not what I thought he would say.
