Coffee Sessions #100

MLOps Critiques

MLOps is too tool-driven, don't let FOMO drive you to pick the latest feature/model/evaluation/ store but pay closer attention to what you actually need to release more safely and reliably.

Take-aways

- Evaluating a tool, look at how easy it is to get out of it - reference what I heard someone say about going to data bricks with the hopes of moving later to EMR (impossible because of how easy data bricks makes that experience) - MLOps tools become bloatware
