Course Conclusion
Start course

This course takes an introductory look at using the SageMaker platform, specifically within the context of preparing data, building and deploying machine learning models.

During this course, you'll gain a practical understanding of the steps required to build and deploy these models along with learning how SageMaker can simplify this process by handling a lot of the heavy lifting both on the model management side, data manipulation side, and other general quality of life tools.

Learning Objectives

  • Obtain a foundational understanding of SageMaker
  • Prepare data for use in a machine learning project
  • Build, train, and deploy a machine learning model using SageMaker

Intended Audience

This course is ideal for data scientists, data engineers, or anyone who wants to get started with Amazon SageMaker.


To get the most out of this course, you should have some experience with data engineering and machine learning concepts, as well as familiarity with the AWS platform.


SageMaker is at its core a platform for managing all parts of the machine learning pipeline. This is everything from labeling and establishing training data, exploring the data with a notebook, and determining the correct model, training the models at scale, and even servicing it once it's in production.

It's also very important to remember that notebooks alone, even outside of the machine learning pipeline are extremely useful in running Python and other data-heavy applications on AWS. I'm not joking when I say I use SageMaker notebooks pretty much preferably over running on my local machine, that way my projects don't bleed together and I have a good amount of isolation when I'm programming and Python.

So as always, I hope you've enjoyed this introductory course to SageMaker. Feel free to leave feedback and check out the other classes that we've created particularly in the data engineering and data science learning paths. We have a ton of labs and lectures that focus on SageMaker and the ways to use SageMaker and I really hope you enjoy them. Thank you.
