Machine learning is challenging. One of the best ways to improve is to get your hands dirty with an ML competition from Kaggle, HackerRank, etc. This group aims to help members on their journey of becoming a better data scientist by fostering a welcoming environment of learning and collaboration.

If you are a seasoned Kaggle grandmaster or just starting out doing data science, you are welcome at this group. Ideally you should know some basic programming skills, such as python + pandas.

Every week we will focus on a particular competition. For ~30 minutes we will talk about basic strategy, things folks are getting stuck on, and spitball useful methods to try. Then we will break into small groups of 2-3 people. Everyone will work on their own solution but teamwork is encouraged. At the end of the event we will go around the room and talk about what went well in the session, what was challenging, and what people are planning on trying next.
