Hi everyone! I just started Part 1 and looking for online study buddies to have weekly conversations. Is anyone up?
There is now a regular meetup every Sunday at 4PM GMT ( 9AM PST = 9:30PM IST = 12PM EST). We are all beginners motivating each other to progress through the classes. During each meetup, one person is responsible for the lesson’s recap and everyone else presents own project/progress. We heavily focus on learning by doing projects, explaining things in a simple language and discussions.
We have finished Part 1 Practical Deep Learning for Coders. However, the study group is active and currently focusing on fastaiv2 2020

Organisation. This thread is our main communication channel. There is also an open slack channel for discussions regarding the projects and chit chats.
I have not done any project/lesson yet, is it a right meetup for me? Absolutely yes. Just ask a lot of questions during the meetup so you can headstart with fast.ai classes. Your questions will be welcome by a presenter as well, since we all learn by explaining. Hopefully, you will also get the motivation to start your own project
Is it fine if I am a bit behind with lessons? Sure, as during the meetup you will get a glimpse of what is awaiting you in future lessons. Also, we would love to hear your learnings from older lessons or personal projects in the second half of the meetup.
I haven’t done anything this week … Sometimes life just happens. We are here to motivate each other and support, so no blaming and no feeling guilty . You can still learn things by participating in discussions
