Important - new URL for part 2

Part 2 of the 2019 course is now here:

https://course19.fast.ai/part2

This course requires fastai v1. To stop fastai from updating to v2, run in your terminal:

echo 'fastai 1.*' >> $CONDA_PREFIX/conda-meta/pinned

many thanks from all 2 of us who are still doing part 2 and not flapping around in the 2020 forum :grinning:

[edit] i haven’t gotten as far as needing fastai yet, for colab i presume i’m just going to have to pip uninstall fastai and install fastai1 each time?

You should be able to do pip install fastai==1.0.61 --force However IIRC part 2 is about building the library from scratch, so you shouldn’t need to install the library

So far it is, it was Jeremy’s comment about conda pinning which had me assuming that changed at some point later.

Tbh I think even it it does, when the DIY library bit finishes I’ll probably move to V2 anyway.

Hi Jeremy
My book arrived today :smile:. I find it far easier to read a book rather than try to make notes while watching a video.
Two questions.
Having waged war with Swift for the last two lessons (2019P2), can I remove any trace of Swift from my memory or will it return in the future. I did integrate export and google drive on colab if anybody is interested.
Are there any plans for a new [Computational Linear Algebra] because the audio quality is poor. I believe there is a transcript for the new 2020 course. Is it possible for you to generate one for [Computational Linear Algebra]
Regards Conwyn

I followed the blog building instructions in the book and i have create a blog on conwyn.github.io for anybody using Swift and Colab. Just click on GCE.
