Data School has a great video on the pandas library. In it, you’ll use pandas to answer questions about a real-world dataset. Through each exercise, you’ll learn important data science skills as well as “best practices” for using pandas. By the end of the tutorial, you’ll be more fluent at using pandas to correctly and efficiently answer your own data science questions.

At the recent Build conference, Microsoft revealed its focus at making  Cortana better at conversational interactions for workers who are organizing their days.  Demos at the annual conference showed off some examples of how Cortana will be able to respond to conversations and organize meetings and reminders proactively.

Cortana can already do a lot of these features today, but it’s the conversational element that has been improved. Microsoft acquired Semantic Machines last year, and in combination with Microsoft researchers, it’s building conversational AI that will combine skills and context to let digital assistants like Cortana actually do the things you ask them to do. It’s designed to connect services that are owned by Microsoft and even third-party ones, so digital assistants like Cortana can get the right context when you ask it to add a calendar entry or organize reservations.

One of the keys (pun intended) of achieving optimal performance out of CosmosDB is partitioning properly.  In partitioning, the items in a container are divided into distinct subsets called logical partitions.

Azure Cosmos DB transparently and automatically manages the placement of logical partitions on physical partitions to efficiently satisfy the scalability and performance needs of the container. As the throughput and storage requirements of an application increase, Azure Cosmos DB moves logical partitions to automatically spread the load across a greater number of servers.
