On a separate note, I think everyone comes into this class from different backgrounds. Many of us haven’t had exposure to the large number of technologies that, while not essential, are pretty important for deep learning. My personal list includes…
- Jupyter Notebook
- Regular Expressions
- A remote editor like vim/nano/sublime
I think it would be great to have a thread or wiki with the best resources and tutorials for these mini-topics, just like we do for the recommended python resources. It would help people who are new to a lot more than AI to not get overwhelmed knowing there’s a neat list they can bite off one chunk at a time.
Finally it should include a warning that these are not in any way prerequisites that should take precedence over the lessons/code, but instead are meant to be tackled gradually based on what your most pressing AI needs are.
Let me know if this already exists somewhere and if not let’s build it!
