How to get started with Fast AI?

Hi everyone,

I’ve been self learning AI and have heard about the Fast AI course many times, but just been confused on how to officially get started. I noticed there are multiple courses and was wondering which course is the recommended to start off with. I assume this is the most up to date course which everyone is in discussion about?

Furthermore, is it recommended to use cloud service providers to follow and run the course material through with, or have people attempted to run locally in comparison?
