Azure Mythbusters: Building ML Models Faster Than You Think

Amy Boyd, Microsoft Author & Cloud Advocate, recently shared a video offering valuable insight into machine learning…
Machine learning is hard. It’s experimental, we have to deal with really big data sets, and we have to choose all the different models and learn the theory behind all of the algorithms. Then you have to tune hyper-parameters and start deploying models. It feels like such a high barrier to entry to get into the machine learning space, but fortunately there’s a no-code machine learning experience that can lend us a hand. As part of the Azure Machine Learning Studio, you get access to the Azure Machine Learning Designer. This is a UI-based, machine learning module builder that lets you click and drag lots of different modules on your screen to build your own bespoke machine learning models. Check out this video, where we…

Principal Tallan Consultant Leonard Lobel Shares Insight on Azure Cosmos DB Change Feed

Azure Cosmos DB is rapidly becoming a household name in data management among developers, though its change feed is still considered somewhat of an unsung facet to its operational capability. In this Microsoft Blog post, Tallan Principal Consultant Leonard Lobel discusses multiple scenarios that call upon the need for a change feed as they relate to varying documents in a container. These scenarios include:

Replicating containers for multiple partition keys
Denormalizing a document data model across containers
Triggering API calls for an event-driven architecture
Real time stream processing and materialized view patterns
Moving or archiving data to secondary data stores

Cloud Development with Microservices in Azure

Cloud development sometimes winds up looking a lot like traditional application development and hosting. Developers can create large, monolithic, web applications and deploy them to a virtual machine or app service. In that sense, transitioning to Azure can be simple for most developers. However, to make best use of Azure, developers need to start thinking differently. Developers need to start thinking about their software architecture in terms of microservices.
What are microservices?
Microservices are a software architecture style in which applications are composed of small, independent modules that communicate with each other using well-defined API contracts. These service modules are highly decoupled building blocks that serve a small single purpose function. The benefit of microservices architecture is that it makes development and scaling of applications easier. A microservices architecture also makes collaboration between autonomous teams easier and can enable them to bring…
