  4. We will run our R scripts using the RStudio IDE. To launch RStudio in your browser, from the cluster overview in the Azure portal, click "R Server dashboards" and then "R Studio server". At the first login screen, enter "admin" and the password you supplied. At the second login screen, enter "sshuser" and the password you supplied.

  5. Once in RStudio, go to the Files pane in the lower right-hand corner and click on "SparkMLADS" and then "Code". Here you will find the directories for the hands-on tutorial scripts.



The student resources can be found in the Student Resources directory. In particular, you will probably use either the Jupyter notebooks or the RMarkdown notebooks.


Resources for re-delivery can be found in the Instructor Resources folder.
