Time for a data science deep dive using one of the most popular platforms out there - Kaggle!
Learn how to start on Kaggle, share your experience, learn tips and trick on how to win a Kaggle competition and improve your skills. Our goals are to: LEARN through practice, NETWORK with other Data Scientists from your city and work on Data Science projects together, MEET Kaggle Grandmasters, Masters and Kaggle competition winners, HAVE FUN at the meetings.
Our speakers are Kaggle competition winners. At Kaggle Days Meetups you can participate in presentations, workshops and offline mini-competitions, all of them related to Data Science and Kaggle.
All technologies are welcome, we aim to provide a venue for all enthusiasts, whether you are into R, Python, Julia, SAS, or other programming languages. Once we reach a small critical mass we will invite everyone for a first Meetup event.
Welcome to our second hands-dirty event!
This time we invite you to take part in a mini-offline competition on a public available dataset on Kaggle. Of course we won't tell you the problem setup in advance to guarantuee same conditions to all participants. ;-)
We are expecting a high learning experience regardless of your skill level. Don't hesitate to pass by our event in the case you have just entered the data science field. You will definitely win by joining a competition regardless of your leaderboard score in the end.
Usually Kaggle competitions cover a broad range of topics like exploratory analysis, statistics, feature engineering & selection, modelling and hyperparameter tuning. By competiting against each other we will discover some effective ways to deal with them.
This time it's up to you if you like to work alone or as a team member. Team merging is always possible but cannot be undone.
Our time format is roughly as follows:
17:30 - 18:00 - Arrival & get-together
18:00 - 21:00 - Competition
21:00 - 22:00 - Solutions & feedback
You don't have to go hungry or thirsty as we will offer some snacks and drinks for free.
Best regards and see you next time!
