Checkout the syllabus for this Coursera course. Too bad I just enrolled in it, so I can't give you my personal review. If you're still interested in a few weeks, feel free to pm me. Bayesian ML

If you’re into courses like I am then here’s a course covering it. I haven’t gotten to it yet, but it’s the next course in the specialization for me

Looks like there’s an entire Coursera course on it. I just think I might take it!

I think that Coursera's Bayesian Methods in Machine Learning does a pretty good job at introducing VI.

They introduce it after they do a week on EM algorithm. They emphasise continuity between EM and more elaborate models, one of them VI. In one of the assignments they ask you to implement VAE (in tf or Keras, I don't remember).

I think these two will be very useful:

Be sure to watch videos (I think this year's run will also be recorded) in the meantime! It'd also help to familiarise yourself with classical bayesian methods (bayesian inference, mcmc, EM, variational inference), for example, through our course on Coursera.
