Kaggle hackday

Ever wanted to spend a day working with other data enthusiasts on a Kaggle competition? If so, then this is the event for you. `Organised by the London Data Science workshop meetup, the basic plan for the day is to find other people who want to work on a Kaggle competition and spend the day hacking and discussing (and eating pizza!) with them. All that's required from you is a laptop with an R and / or Python environment and your data science know-how.

If you want to see what competitions are currently available, check them out here. If you are a complete novice check out the Titanic tutorials -- there will be a Kaggle 101 group during the hackathon where this is often explored.

All levels from complete novices to experienced data scientists are welcome at the meetup.

A rough agenda will be as follows:

• Arrive about 10:30am and form teams to start hacking away at different Kaggle competitions

• Break for lunch around 1pm

• Start hacking again!

• Lightning talks from 5pm.
