Look inside

In this liveProject, you’ll deploy a machine learning model to production so it can be easily used by colleagues. You’ll create a virtual environment for deploying your application, use Flask to build a local web service that returns predictions, and Heroku for remote deployment.

This project is designed for learning purposes and is not a complete, production-ready application or solution.

book and video resources

When you start your liveProject, you get full access to the following books and videos for 90 days.

project author

Harshit Tyagi
Harshit Tyagi has helped over a thousand students master the fundamentals of programming and data science. In his roles at OpenClassrooms and Coding Ninjas, he leverages his technical expertise to conduct workshops and help students bring their course projects to the finish line. He also has a YouTube channel, where he covers fundamental concepts in data science and Python, interview tips, and more. In addition to focusing on data science education, Harshit has developed data processing algorithms with research scientists at Yale, MIT and UCLA.


This liveProject is for intermediate Python data scientists who want to expand their capabilities in effective production deployment. To begin this liveProject, you will need to be familiar with the following:

  • Basics of Pandas
  • Basics of NumPy
  • Basics of Joblib/Pickle
  • Basics of Flask
  • Jupyter Notebooks
  • Heroku
  • pipenv/virtualenv

Note: The final milestone of this project uses Heroku to the application. Heroko incurs a cost. There is intermittent use, and the Eco option ($5) will be sufficient to get the app working as Eco covers 1000 hours, and we will be using far less than that for this project.

you will learn

In this liveProject, you’ll make a proven-and-tested machine learning model easily available in production to non-technical users.

  • Creation and maintenance of a virtual environment
  • GET and POST requests
  • Creating a web framework for your weather prediction application
  • Saving and loading of sklearn objects
  • Remote deployment on Heroku


You choose the schedule and decide how much time to invest as you build your project.
