I would suggest that Amazon SageMaker provide free slots to allow customers to practice, such as a free slot to try out working with a Sandbox.I would say the IDE is quite immature, but it is still in its infancy, so I expect it to get better over time.

One thing that hurts the product is that the company is not doing more to advertise it as a solution and make it more well known.The solution would benefit from offering more automation.Having a small guide or video on the tool would help learn how to use it and what the features are.I think that the framework can be improved to make it easier for people to discover and use things on their own.One feature that I would like to see is being able to use a different language in a different cell, which would allow me to mix R and Python together.The interface could be improved. Other solutions, like Visual Studio, have much better UI.The ability to schedule scripts for the building and monitoring of jobs would be an advantage for this platform.I think better documentation or a step-by-step guide for installation would help, especially for on-premise users.
