The tutorial in brief:

Even if you don't have any experience with Machine Learning you will be able to start your own experiments right after the tutorial.


Prerequisites to run the examples:

  1. Install Python 3.x 64 bit version
  2. Remember about adding Python directories to the default path it is possible in the installer by checking the appropriate check box on the first page of the installer.

  3. Open the terminal (cmd for Windows, Terminal.app for macOs) and execute:

  4. pip install -r http://www.kasprowski.pl/tutorial/requirements.txt

    [it will take some time to load and install all the required libraries]

Then you may test your environment by typing:

python -c "import tensorflow as tf; print(tf.__version__)"

If you see something like: "1.13.1", you are ready for the tutorial!

Note, that if you are an experienced user and you are already using Python in other projects, you should probably start with creating the virtual environment using the command:

python -m venv DIR

Check: https://docs.python.org/3/tutorial/venv.html for details.

Moreover, if you want to stay with Python for a little bit longer, you should consider installing an IDE tool that will simplify your work, like PyCharm or (my favorite) PyDev.
