This is a more detailed version of my Boy meets Girl talk, created specially for Microsoft Ignite | The Tour Amsterdam 2019. Whereas Boy meets Girl was mostly focused on how to deploy a trained model using either Azure ML Service or ML Studio, here I wanted to create a more in-depth comparison of the two tools. This is what led me to the concept of having multiple rounds, with the audience voting for their favourite tool (truth be told, I think I just wanted another go at delivering something similar to my TypeScript versus CoffeeScript talk 🤓).

Once the concept was clear, I spent a significant amount of time just polishing the examples and making sure they’re as exhaustive as possible. And then, of course, another significant amount of time was spent just cutting out things because they didn’t fit with the rest of the story 🙄. All worth it of course, since it allowed me to also have a meaningful conversation with the audience (which was really really really active and involved), answering questions and going into more detail if necessary, instead of just rushing to go through all of the slides.
