Are you ready for the Indaba? There are a few things that you could (should) do, to arrive prepared. We are going to run our practical sessions on Amazon Web Services, and will require you to set up your own virtual machine (VM) on AWS.
Amazon web services
- Follow the instructions at http://deep-learning-indaba.github.io/aws-setup to create a Virtual Machine on Amazon Web Services that you can use to run the practicals.
- Navigate to the "practicals2017" folder in Jupyter on your Virtual Machine and run practical0.ipynb. It is advisable that you run through a notebook prior to the Indaba. If you are unfamiliar with Python and (or) Numpy, this is also the ideal place to brush up your skills.
GITHUB: Our COde Repository
The notebooks are stored in the following Github repo if you want to run them on your own machine: https://github.com/deep-learning-indaba/practicals2017.
