I’ve created a batteries-included Docker image for the course that makes it even easier to get started. It’s available at https://github.com/deeprig/fastai-course-1. I’ve tested it on Windows, Linux and MacOS. To use it:
- Install Docker on your machine: https://docs.docker.com/engine/installation/
- Run the container:
docker run -it -p 8888:8888 deeprig/fastai-course-1
That’s it. All notebooks will be available on http://localhost:8888.
The container also works with GPUs when used with nvidia-docker. I have preconfigured AMIs with Docker/nvidia-docker ready to go on AWS p2 and t2 instances, and I’m working on a Python package that spins them up using your AWS credentials, so you don’t have to install Docker locally. Let me know if you’re interested in something like that and I can help you set it up.
