Llama from scratch (or how to implement a paper without crying) [Link]
My approach for implementing papers is:
Make all of the helper functions required to test your model quantitatively (data splits, training, plotting the loss).
Before you even look at the paper, pick a small, simple, and fast model that you’ve done in the past. Then make a helper function to evaluate the model qualitatively.
Start by picking apart different components of the paper, and then implementing them one-by-one, training and evaluating as you go.
