H2O is well-documented, so http://docs.h2o.ai should be your first port of call. The latest user guide is at http://docs.h2o.ai/h2o/latest-stable/h2o-docs/index.html.

If you want to see if, say, any new parameters have been added to GBM, you could go to the REST API Reference, then find GBMParametersV3. Alternatively, regularly check Changes.md over on the GitHub site!

If you wanted to see how GBM is implemented in Java you would start at the Javadocs, find "hex.tree.gbm,” then "GBM.” The corresponding code will be over on Github.

Random forest is called DRF in the REST endpoints, and hex.tree.drf in the Java source; everything else is fairly much named how you would expect.

Installing the Latest Version

Installing from packages, as shown back in the first chapter (“Install H2O with R (CRAN)” and “Install H2O with Python (pip)”) is going to be good enough for most people. However, installing the ...
