Pragmatic Machine Learning and ML Engineering in the Cloud with Amazon SageMaker

It is not an easy task to design and build systems in the cloud that involve Machine Learning and Data Science requirements. It also requires careful planning and execution to get different teams and professionals such as data scientists and members of MLOps teams to follow certain processes in order to have a sustainable and effective ML workflow. In this tutorial, I will share the different strategies and solutions on how to design, build, deploy, and maintain complex intelligent systems in AWS using Amazon SageMaker and Python. Amazon SageMaker is a fully managed machine learning service that aims to help developers, data scientists, machine learning practitioners, and MLOps teams manage machine learning experiments and workflows.

We will start by learning some of the important concepts and patterns used in production environments through some initial short laboratory exercises using Python and the SageMaker Python SDK. As we take on more complex topics, we will work on a couple of practical solutions and examples using the different features and capabilities of Amazon SageMaker to solve the different needs of data science and MLOps teams.
