Hi Marcin,

Define “energetic” :sweat_smile:. I’d be more than happy to find and join a study group. I’m on GMT+2 but between the day job and other responsibilities, time is quite scarce.

Hi,

I’m on GMT+3, but I think it won’t cause any issue since this is an asynchronous class. If it’s ok, it would be great to form a study group.

Hello,
I am interested in joining a study group. I’m in EST time zone but want to follow along.

sign me up!

Hi I’m GMT and would be interested in joining, as long as it is mainly async through discord for example, with a few online meet ups here and there :+1:

Hello,
I’m in GMT+1 timezone.
Currently I’m at Lesson 3 (Chapter 4 of the book).
And interested to join…

I am in GMT, and would be interested in joining.

Hello!

This is my timezone! I go away from Tensorflow and switched to Pytorch. This way I have reached this great community and Jeremy’s book. Althought that I’ve got some experience in the deep learning, Jeremy’s book is worth doing some backwards even at cost going forward to diffusion models. Usually I learn at evenings and at night.

Hi Everyone :),
Firstly, could you suggest the days it suits the best to hold some kind of 1h session or longer if needed to discuss the course topics such as chapter questions or own work, ideas, challenges? Shall it be week day or Saturday/Sunday?
Secondly, which platform would you prefer to communicate: Discord, Teams, Slack?
Personally, I dispense with some experience in deep learning and I would to add it the unique practicality and application perspective introduced by Jeremy’s book :)…

Regards,
Marcin

Discord would be ok? I would suggest to have the first call on Saturday - for instance at 12AM?

Hi all, just stumbled on this and would be interested to join! Is the 19.12.2023 still on?

I would like to join. Can you post the links in here.

Hi Everyone,
First of all, small apologies for late publishing of the Discord server for this group: FASTAI EU STUDY GROUP 202401. Please feel free to join and participate.
According to the discord server, I acknowledge that I am the Discord ‘novice’ person. Therefore, in case you encounter any issues with the Discord configuration or have any suggestions to its configuration please let me know. So far I have created 4 channels for first 4 units of the first fastai course.
According to the initial call I would suggest to arrange short call on Wednesday 20.12.2023 at 9PM CET to start debating organization issues and group philosophy and working principles. The exact dates and live meeting times we may align on discord.
As far as study group is concerned, I suggest to hold the weekly calls focusing on the course material and exercises along with the related DL applications from every day life related to each unit. We can cover during each meeting questions from two or three units - for instance, first meeting units 1-3, second 2-4 etc. to enable folks with different obligations to act at different time internals.
In case of any questions, please reach out to me.

Hi Marcin,

I am keen to join your study group. I just finished lecture 2, am I too far behind to join the group?

Thank you!
