Silicon Valley Code Camp : October 3rd and 4th 2015
Eugene Chuvyrov is a Senior Cloud Architect at Microsoft. He works directly with both startups and enterprises to enable their solutions in Microsoft cloud, and to make Azure better as a result of this work with partners. Over his tenure at Microsoft, his focus varied from modern DevOps, to enabling AI solutions in the cloud, to advising customers on creating Blockchain solutions in Azure. He is looking forward to sharing his knowledge from those engagements with the community.
Today, Microsoft Azure allows us to deploy a functional Apache Spark cluster in minutes. That means we can focus on analyzing vast amounts of information and applying machine learning algorithms on that data to develop valuable predictions. In this session, we will pick a fairly sized machine learning competition from kaggle.com, create a Spark machine learning pipeline to preprocess data and make predictions, as well as evaluate different algorithms against each other. We will also touch on several several integration points between Spark and Azure that make Spark on Azure a good choice for data analytics in the cloud.
