I think I've gotten rid of all the spams on my blog.  It was quite an effort.  I am not going to be mean about it.  I know the spammers are just trying to do their job.  But just keep in mind that the people who comes to my blog are people who wants to learn about coding.  Heck I come here just for self reference.  So you can still spam is you want.  But, I will delete your spam.  I just hope people will learn from this blog. It's not the bible, but I hope you are interested in coding because of it.

The best way to connect to a virtual machine in Azure if it's a Windows operating system is through a Remote Desktop Connection or RDP.  In this post I am going to show how to set the Azure portal virtual machine to accept RDP connection from your desktop.

Here are the steps to set up RDP:

1. Log into Azure portal portal.azure.com with your Microsoft Azure account
2. Click on the "Virtual Machines" link, and select the virtual machine that you want to connect to via RDP








3. Select "Networking"

It is time consuming and a lot of work to set up your own data science virtual machine locally.  If you don't mind the cost, the alternative to is to setup a data science Virtual Machine in Azure and let Azure take care of the plumbing such as the hardware requirements and etc, because a data science Virtual Machine is a little beefier than an regular mainstream laptop.

Here are the steps to create a data science virtual machine in Microsoft Azure:


1. Log into http://portal.azure.com with your Microsoft Azure account
2. Click on "Virtual Machines"
