Hi everyone.

I chronicled my data science journey and some of my major learning points from this competition in this post: I was also able to reach out to a top 10 solution who gladly shared his best entry (there are no detailed explanations anyway). I hope both begineers and experts will be able to learn from the post and the Github repo (which includes both my detailed notebook and the top 10 solution pdf) attached to it. I encourage other people to share their experiences too so that we can all learn from one another.


Thanks for sharing!

I hope others share as well.
