Quick setup of fast.ai course on AWS / Google Cloud / Paperspace


Team from Clouderizer is happy to announce our latest release this week. Clouderizer projects now run inside docker containers, which means all projects (including fast.ai template) can be safely launched on any cloud service provider (AWS / GCP / Paperspace) and our automation for drivers, dependency setup, source and dataset download, and remote access through clouderizer tunnel, all works without any change needed in the project. Here are the articles for different cloud services

Facing an issue with setting up fast.ai for google colab using couderizer. Next button not visible on SETUP page.
Can you please have a look.

I guess this issue was resolved. A scroll down was needed to view the button.

Yes, I replied so at another place in the forum. Thanks for the prompt response.

Seems Fast.ai template is broken for the need of Jupyterlab.
Installation on colaboratory goes forever. Need to force stop the cell execution.

Could you please check it?

For generic implementation, Clouderizer tries multiple ways to setup the dependencies. Some scripts fail on Colaboratory. You can ignore the errors above.

Please don’t force stop cell in Colaboratory. Instead leave it running and login to your Clouderizer console. Here you will see your project setup status. Once project status reaches “Running”, you can start working on Fast.ai course notebooks from Clouderizer console.

Thanks for response, Prakash.

In the absence of Jupyterlab as in above error - how to run course notebooks? I encounter error : 404 when clicked on Jupyter icon from running clouderizer console.

You should not see 404 error unless, behind the scene, your Colab instance has died due to inactivity. In that case you should stop and restart your project.

We recently made some improvement to detect such shutdowns from Colab proactively and guide you appropriately. Let me know if you still see this issue.

Sure. Will give it a try and report if issue persists. Thanks for help.
