It became possible to code Python in SQL 2017 but did it become necessary? Is this a vital missing piece of the SQL estate? A new opportunity to grasp with both hands? And should we have done this yesterday? Or is this bloatware, a cost on the server, the method and our actual brains.

Using a simple to understand movie rating system,I will build a series of classification models in both T-SQL and native Python. I will ask are these models any good? I will visualise the results and in doing so not only answer this but pose (and answer) a bigger one: did using SQL Server add anything? Join me, you just might be surprised by the conclusion.

Topics covered are: Python, Python in SSMS, Machine Learning 101, Data Science, Overfitting vs Bias, Data Visualisation, the Scientific Method, Resource Management.
