Prompt Engineering with Llama 2

In Collaboration With




1 Hour


Amit Sangani

  • Learn best practices specific to prompting Llama 2 models.

  • Interact with Meta Llama 2 Chat, Code Llama, and Llama Guard models.

  • See how you can build safe, responsible AI applications using the Llama Guard model.

What you’ll learn in this course

Open up your prompt engineering to the Llama 2 collection of models! Learn best practices for prompting and building applications with these powerful open commercial license models.

Interact with the entire collection of Llama 2 models with a simple API call, and explore the differences in output between models for a variety of tasks.

What you’ll do: 

  • Learn best practices for prompting and selecting among the Llama 2 models by using them as a personal assistant to help you complete day-to-day tasks.
  • Experiment with advanced prompt engineering techniques, like few-shot prompting to get Llama 2 to classify the sentiment of text messages, and chain-of-thought prompting to solve logic problems.
  • Treat Code Llama as a pair programming partner to both learn to write and improve code.
  • Promote safe and responsible use of LLMs by having Llama Guard check user prompts and model responses for harmful content.

Llama 2 models and model weights are free to download, including quantized model versions that can run on your local machine. Join a thriving community of open source developers that is building applications powered by Llama 2.

Who should join?

Anyone who is interested in learning prompt engineering and wants to try out Meta Llama 2 models.
