Machine Learning Operations (MLOps) is a combination of Machine Learning, DevOps, and Data Engineering. The role of MLOps is to deploy and maintain machine learning systems reliably and efficiently.
The MLOps process consists of these three broad phases:
- Designing the ML-powered application
- ML Experimentation and Development
- ML Operations
MLOps is becoming a very popular career due to the increase in the use of machine learning algorithms in our everyday lives. With this, naturally the demand for MLOps engineers and related careers will also increase. This is where you may find yourself if you’re reading this article.
You may be considering a career in MLOps or have already decided to take the step. In this article, I will provide you with valuable learning resources from GitHub to help you become successful in your MLOps career.
