Starter Rscript for Womxn in Big Data South Africa Project

Hi guys, I just shared my Rscript in my github repository. It scored 3.584 on the LB. Although Zindi has provided Python Starter Notebook already, I couldn't find any R starter codes. So, I decided to share mine.

Please ask questions on this publicly open discussion board for the fairness in this competition, if you have any.

Yet to look at the code but well done for taking the initiative to share an R starter code.

Been struggling with installing LGBM on my laptop. Could you please share the steps to its installation. Thanks

I don't remember I have tried anything special. I think I just followed official document. such as this.

Anyway, if you can't successfuly install it, i recommend you try it on kaggle notebook.

Okay. I will follow the documentation. Thanks

what agorithm did you use? and what feature engineering did you do please?
