What we're about

Kaggle Days Meetups are a series of events all over the world, created by Kaggle and LogicAI, that aim to gather Kagglers and people interested in Data Science around one city.

We welcome anyone who works in Data Science or Machine Learning and anyone who is interested in transitioning into the field of data science.

Our aim is to build a community of Kagglers in the DC, Maryland, and NoVA by learning about techniques used in solving data science and machine learning problems. We want to jumpstart new Kagglers on the Kaggle competition.
