Content is great, however, it would've been perfect if there was more downloadables, for instance the course material and the content on the videos. As we pause the video too many times to take notes on everything because it is difficult to return back to the videos later, it takes too much time, energy and concentration. Some notes available to download would've been great to concentrate more on understanding all the new topics
The course is highly informative, offering valuable insights and practical knowledge. It provides the best resources and tools for learning, ensuring a comprehensive understanding of the subject matter.
I'm enjoying this course. I logged into Hugging face. I definetly desire to create my own LLM. I hope you have more courses on different aspects of LLM's
The code from GitHub is missing instrctions for the packages to be installed, and also, the dataset for fine-tuning is not made available.
Great teaching skill that make complicated concept easy to uderstand with clear hands on exe=amples.

“We’ll use models like those in the GPT series, BERT, and XLNet and introduce you to various other models at your disposal. We will also explain how these models work in detail, and you’ll begin experimenting with them through different practical exercises and LLM tutorials. ”
