With the release of the Jetson Nano™ Developer Kit, NVIDIA® empowers developers, researchers, students, and hobbyists to explore AI concepts in the most accessible way possible. Reinforcing its commitment to widening the accessibility to and innovation in the area of deep learning, NVIDIA has created a free, self-paced, online Deep Learning Institute (DLI) course, “Getting Started on AI with Jetson Nano.” The goal of the course is to build foundational skills to enable anyone to get creative with the Jetson Developer Kit.
Included in this kit is everything you will need to get started in the “Getting Started on AI with Jetson Nano” and you will learn how to
The NVIDIA Deep Learning Institute offers hands-on training in AI and accelerated computing to solve real-world problems. Developers, data scientists, researchers, and students can get practical experience powered by GPUs in the cloud and earn a certificate of competency to support professional growth. They offer self-paced, online training for individuals, instructor-led workshops for teams, and downloadable course materials for university educators.
Note: Already have a Jetson Nano Developer Kit? You're in luck! We have made a version of this kit without one to help get you started with the DLI course.
Note Included but Needed for Operation: A computer with an Internet connection and the ability to flash your microSD card.
If a board needs code or communicates somehow, you're going to need to know how to program or interface with it. The programming skill is all about communication and code.
Skill Level: Experienced - You will require a firm understanding of programming, the programming toolchain, and may have to make decisions on programming software or language. You may need to decipher a proprietary or specialized communication protocol. A logic analyzer might be necessary.

If it requires power, you need to know how much, what all the pins do, and how to hook it up. You may need to reference datasheets, schematics, and know the ins and outs of electronics.
Skill Level: Rookie - You may be required to know a bit more about the component, such as orientation, or how to hook it up, in addition to power requirements. You will need to understand polarized components.

Good system but the NVIDIA course only barely scratches the surface. Functioned as advertised. Need to build the Jetbot next to dig a little deeper into the system capabilities.
It has everything you need to be up and running in minutes. Follow along with the NVIDIA DLI course Getting Started with AI on Jetson Nano and you won't be disappointed. It runs tethered to your PC or stand alone. I added a wireless bridge so it can get on my WIFI network. Just plug it into the RJ45 on the board. It does get hot when working hard so you might want to consider a fan.
