OraRTD30(RTD)D Oracle Real-Time Decisions 3.0 (RTD) for Developers

Oracle Course Description:
The course introduces the RTD platform and applications, describing their features, functions, capabilities, and architecture. The lesson topics are reinforced with structured hands-on practices during which participants create and deploy a fully functional inline service project from scratch. Participants also perform administrative tasks and use the batch framework to obtain batched decisions, simulate responses, and close the loop with batched learning.
