NYC-area study group organization

Hi all!

Is there a thread anywhere about organizing study groups for v4 of the class? I’m in the NYC area and would love to meet up with other learners (either joining an existing group or helping to organize, if others would be interested). Anyone else? :slight_smile:


I just created this category for it! :slight_smile:


Hi! I’m also in NYC, would be happy to join a study group. We had one going about two years back, I think some of those people are still around the forum and might join in


I’m in NYC area as well. Happy to join.

Awesome! Are there particular days/times that are better for you all? Wednesday evening would be my preference but I’m pretty flexible overall.

Definitely going to be experiencing some fomo from this thread - recently moved back to Australia. Sure to meet some awesome people in the NYC fastai meetup for anyone interested e.g. @wdhorton


Hi there! NYC based as well

Just wanted to point out on this thread since it was mentioning meetings at first that fastai does not endorse any physical meeting for study groups right now with the pandemic, only virtual only study groups.


Also interested in this study group, however, we should do a virtual one on Zoom or other online platforms.

Yeah, let’s plan on a virtual meeting. Any preferences in terms of platform?

Doodle poll for timing: :upside_down_face:

Also interested! What are study groups usually used for?

Normally for going over the material, talking about stuff that was confusing, discussing projects/ideas, getting other people’s perspectives etc. Right now it looks like the best time based on the doodle would be Monday night, but I’m not sure we have a critical mass. Thoughts?

Update: it looks Monday 8-10pm will be the best time! Let’s plan on having our first meeting a week from tomorrow (so Mar 30) and we’ll discuss the first two weeks. :slight_smile:

Hi! In the NYC area as well. Virtual meetups sound great.
