What is Metaflow?

Metaflow is an open-source Python library for building and managing data science workflows, developed by Netflix. It aims to make it easy for data scientists to build, deploy, and scale machine learning models and data processing pipelines. With Metaflow, users can define complex workflows using Python code and execute them on various compute platforms, such as AWS Batch or local machines.

Benefits of Metaflow

  • Provides a simple, Pythonic interface for building data science workflows, making it accessible to data scientists with limited infrastructure knowledge.

  • Supports versioning and tracking of code, data, and dependencies, ensuring reproducibility and traceability.

  • Facilitates collaboration by enabling data scientists to share code, data, and models with their colleagues.

  • Integrates with popular data science libraries, such as TensorFlow, PyTorch, and scikit-learn.
