This course is based on “Deep Learning for Coders with Fastai and Pytorch” but it’s complementary rather than necessary.

To get the tone of the course

You don’t need any special hardware or software — we’ll show you how to use free resources for both building and deploying models. You don’t need any university math either — we’ll teach you the calculus and linear algebra you need during the course.

The co-founder of and creator of this course is Jeremy Howard, who was once ranked number one on Kaggle for two consecutive years. Also, after that, he became President and Chief Scientist there.
