MiniTorch (https://github.com/minitorch/) is a diy teaching library for machine learning engineers who wish to learn about the internal concepts underlying deep learning systems. It is a pure Python re-implementation of the Torch API designed to be simple, easy-to-read, tested, and incremental. The final library can run Torch code. The project was developed for the course Machine Learning Engineering at Cornell Tech.
To get started, first read Setup and Contributing to build your workspace. Then follow through each of the modules to the right. Minimal computational resources are required. Module starting code is available on GitHub, and each proceeds incrementally from past modules.
