I am looking for a bit of advice about starting the course. I have been considering starting the course for a year, and was about to do it, but I see everyone excited about the new fastai v1, and that the course using it will come out in 2019.
Would you recommend:
- Start the course now, and use fastai v0.7?
- Start the course now, and use fastai v1?
- Wait until the new version of the course comes out, and use v1 then?
Additionally, I saw a blogpost on using Google Colab for fastai https://medium.com/@prakash_31206/fastest-way-to-setup-fast-ai-course-notebooks-for-free-using-google-colab-gpu-and-clouderizer-c8a004e1d50d - Is there a negative to using that over paperspace (besides the fact that it closes after 12 hours)?
