πŸ“– Organizing Local In-Person Study Group in Singapore - Saturdays 10 AM GMT+8

Hi,

Happy weekend. Would anyone be interested in forming an IN-PERSON study group in Singapore for fast.ai Liveβ€”the new version of the International Fellowship 2018?

I guess many here are super excited for the upcoming International Fellowship Live stream of the new DL Part 1 v3 course. I figured that some of you (and also me) would probably benefit from forming small study groups of 5 people. I think groups of up to 5 people would be an appropriate size.

I plan to organize weekly meetups to:

  • clarify questions that many will be too shy to ask directly in the live stream
  • review the course material
  • be a good way to help each other with assignments / projects to use what we learned
  • discussion of Deep Learning topics that are specific to our region
  • join and discuss Kaggle competitions together
  • …or anything you think will be useful to you and your fellow students.

Tentative plan:

We can decide to meetup on other suitable time if anyone thinks so. We’ll see how to organize the groups.

Feel free to post here to connect with others in Singapore physically to organize study sessions.

  1. I created a Slack group. If you haven’t joined the Slack group yet, please join through this invite link.

  2. I created a poll to find out the most suitable time for the study sessions. Please vote.

Thanks,
Ced

Nice! Noted.

Hi Cedric,

I am from Malaysia.
Do you have a remote study group?
Physical study group would be great but I need Star Trek teleportation for the 500km travel :slight_smile:

Hi Ritika,

Just to be crystal clear. This is NOT a remote/virtual study group. Will you be in Singapore?

I plan to create a Slack workspace/group soon. Once it’s done, I will post the link here. Stay tuned.

Hi Cedric,
I am moving to Singapore in December. I want to be part of this group.Please let me know if I can attend physical study group from December.

Thanks,
Ritika

Oh, I see… Sure, you are welcome to join us in-person. As we are using the public library facilities, I hope we are lucky enough (don’t clash with school exam season), so we can easily find a table and seats with access to power outlets.

I am very familiar with the Woodlands Regional Library as I frequently (like continuously for 6 months, almost every weekdays), I study and work on the DL Part 2 v2 and ML 2018 course materials and projects in this library alone.

I’d love to join the study group. count me in

Alright.

Hi Cedric, I would like to join the physical and virtual study group.

Hello coral,

Thank you for your interest.

We just got our virtual study group off the ground yesterday with 9 active fellow students now. I will invite you to our group soon.

As for the in-person study group, I will create a Slack group and post the link here by this week.

Hi @neoyipeng, @ritika26 , @wyquek, and @coral,

I created a Slack group. Please join and introduce yourself.

From now onward, please use the Slack group to keep yourself up-to-date with the latest announcements, course-based questions, and logistics matters.

Thanks!

Hi everyone,

I created a poll to find out the most suitable time for the study sessions. Please vote.

You can find the tentative schedule (Doodle Calendar) here. I plan to start the first session next Saturday.

Let me know if you have any issues.

Please read the thread carefully for instructions. You can add yourself to our Slack group. See you there.

Hi Nandha,

Thank you for your interest. Please introduce yourself first.

Is it good enough if you are in Singapore and just join our in-person study group?
