Introduction to Azure Machine Learning

Azure Machine Learning is a cloud predictive analytics service that makes it possible to quickly create and deploy predictive models as analytics solutions. Getting started is easy. The first working prototype is an easy evening project. But Azure Machine Learning will grow to extremely complex projects. This session will demonstrate initial projects utilizing multiple data science principals.

Coding Standards

Every project has a development standard. Sometimes the standard is “if it was hard to write, it should be hard to maintain.”

Developing, and following, a corporate Best Practices standard will lead to continuity, maintainability, robustness, and pride.

Blazor

Blazor lets you build interactive web UIs using C# instead of JavaScript. Blazor apps are composed of reusable web UI components implemented using C#, HTML, and CSS. Both client and server code is written in C#, allowing you to share code and libraries.

Developers with experience in Web Forms or MVC will find Blazer to provide an integrated full-stack solution to mobile development. Blazer is the next generation moving away from frameworks such as JavaScript, Angular, or React.
