Kaggle kernels might be another option - free GPU, etc.

I’m Peter W. Szabo. My background is in UX, in fact, I’m currently leading the UX at 3SS. Used to live in London, UK, but I have recently moved back to Targu Mures, Transylvania, Romania. I have written a book titled User Experience Mapping, published by Packt.
I believe that the future of UX can’t be separated from machine-learning. This is why I’m attracted to ML.
I’m also a big believer in communities, and helping others. This is why I’m the curator or TEDxTirguMures.
Thank you for accepting me, and looking forward to learning from all of you.

Hi everyone :wave:

My name is Nikola and I’m super excited to go through’s MOOC. I’ve done a decent amount of courses on ML (last one was Anderw Ngs Stanford ML course) and I really enjoyed them. I mostly did stuff with regression and classification algorithms such as logistic regression, SVM and linear regression. Most recently I worked on a time series model for a client. All of those things are very exciting but I wanted to get more into deep learning so naturally I went for fast.ais MOOC.

I just accepted (a few weeks ago) an offer from a local startup to go onboard as a security engineer that will focus on ML aspect of security. I’m pretty pumped about that.


If you are around Columbus (Ohio) area and are doing any of the MOOCs let me know I’m trying to figure out a study group :slight_smile:

Hi guys!

I’m an Italian software engineer. I’m looking to improve my knowledge in programming and starting a new career in something totally new (I’m actually a CAD/CAM developer here in Italy). And would love to relocate elsewhere in the world.

Starting today.
It is a really beautiful sensation: create a new repo, set up my new environment with my markdown files for notes and so on…
Really exiciting!

See you soon here :slight_smile:



Hello Everyone! :wave:

I am Vishal. I am currently working as a Software Developer in New York city. I have been in field of ML/DL over a year. I have completed Andrew Ng’s course and a couple of Udacity Nanodegrees.

I am really excited to start the course and I a looking forward to the learning experience. A big shout out to @jeremy and @rachel for putting these courses together.

I’m Melissa, and I’ve been lurking in the Fastai stuff for a few months. I have a background in the fields of computer science, cognitive science, and communications disorders. I recently got my Ph.D. in ‘Communication Sciences and Disorders’ and work as a Speech-Language Pathologist in an Elementary School.

I’m fascinated by deep learning, and want to learn the skills to be able to compete in Kaggle competitions!

I really appreciate this community, and the resources it provides for learning deep learning.


(Nikola Novakovic) #712

Welcome! :raised_hands:

Out of curiosity how did you like those Udacity nano degrees?



Hey @novarac23

The nano degrees were pretty good. I did the Deep Learning and Self Driving Car nano degrees. They involve coding assignments/projects and are very hands on. It was a helpful introduction for me into Deep Learning. Also these are paid courses and the projects are time bound so it gives that extra motivation to complete them on time. :slightly_smiling_face:

Hi everybody,

My name is Lloyd and I’ve just started taking the course!

I’m currently CTO at Backlinko, an SEO training company. My university degree is Computer Science (Hons), where we touched on neutral networks (but they were very primitive compared to today).

I’ve just finished lesson one, and I’m excited to get stuck in to the rest of the course.

Cheers :+1:

Hi all :slight_smile:

My name is Michael, so far I’ve finished lessons 1+2, really excited so far! I’ve been interested in ML & DL for the past 1.5 years, during this time I’ve completed a couple of ML courses, a few python courses and tried to keep up with the best minds and recent advancements by listening to podcasts and reading related news.

Currently, I’m living in Haifa, Israel, and working as a product manager at a start-up. Glad to be part of the community! :rocket:
