What's this thing called MLOps? You may have heard about it by now, but never really understood what all the fuzz is about. Let's find out together!
In this tutorial, you will learn about MLOps and take your first steps in a hands-on way. To do so, we will be using Open Source tooling. We will be taking a simple example of Machine Learning use case and will gradually make it more ready for production 🚀.
We start with a simple time-series model in Python using scikit-learn and first add logging steps to make the performance of the model measurable. Don't worry: we will go through it step-by-step, so you won't be overwhelmed. Then, we will log our ML model and load it back into an inference step. Lastly, we will learn about deploying these actual models by Dockerizing our application 🙏.
Welcome! You will be learning about MLOps in a hands-on way. So get ready to get your hands dirty and code along! 👏🏻

🏡 What you will take home
At the end of the tutorial, you will be taking home the following:
- What MLOps is
- When it's applicable, and why it is important
- How you can track your Machine Learning experiments and build better models because of it

❤️ Open Source Software
Many of the used tooling is Open Source. Open software for all!
Some Python knowledge is required, as well as some general Data Science knowledge: model- training and inference as well as cross-validation. We will not go into details on the Data Science part, but it is good to have a rough understanding about it 👍🏻.
