With LLMs, the world just moves too fast. I’m not an AI guy, so I felt like I was falling further and further behind. As a nerd, I wanted to play with the new tools, but hey, the amount of information out there is just overwhelming!

Where to start?

Quick Start Guide to Large Language Models: Strategies and Best Practices for Using ChatGPT and Other LLMs by Sinan Ozdemir

This book by Sinan Ozdemir might be a perfect launching pad. This was my plane reading for a few weeks and I really enjoyed it. It’s straightforward, practical, and very easy to read. Just right for someone who is tech-savvy but new to AI.

And yes, it’s available on O’Reilly Learning (free for many students).
