Here’s how to get set up for the course, by platform:
General setup FAQ
Which should I use? We recommend Paperspace, since they’ve got everything customized and set up for this course. They have a good free option, for $8/month you get plenty of extra space, and it’s a totally standard Jupyter setup so everything should “just work”. Colab is also a good free option, especially if Paperspace free instances aren’t available, but it’s a bit more fiddly.
What about the Local options? For users with their own equipment, the Local* options can be used in place of the cloud based options. These setups are meant for non-beginners and for those who can quickly troubleshoot installations. Remember this course is about deep learning, not system configuration setups and compatibility issues.
