This new AMI has :
I tried to add OpenCV 3.1.0 but ran into so much trouble I could not. Still an open issue here. I will add it for the next version. Add suggestions and other libraries you’d need in the comments!
Its name is
vict0rsch-2.0 and is located in the
us-east-1 region i.e. N. Virginia (because p2 instances are not (yet) in California)
Also if you have troubles with connecting and managing the instance, do have a look at this other post!
ZSH is the default shell in this AMI. It will only make things easier compared to Bash. Nothing less, a few very useful things more like the smarter tab completion, Up-key history (if you type for instance
ssh -i + Up-key it will go through the history of command starting like this, not all commands!) and also the z shortcut if you often go to the same locations. Dive in!
