Welcome to the two day workshop on how to effectively use Azure Machine Learning. In these two days, we will focus on hands-on activities that develop proficiency in AI-oriented workflows leveraging Azure Machine Learning, the Team Data Science Process, Visual Studio Team Services, and Azure Container Services. These labs assume a introductory to intermediate knowledge of these services, and if this is not the case, then you should spend the time working through the pre-requisites.


Pre-requisites can be found here. Briefly, pre-requisites include the following:


Azure Machine Learning Services
