March 10, 2016

(This article was first published on R – Data Science Africa, and kindly contributed to R-bloggers)

Thanks to all who attending the first R User’s meetup last night. It was our first attempt at the format but we have received great feedback up to now. I would appreciate any direct feedback from our members as to recommendations how we can make the meetups even better. Get in touch with me

On the awesome recommendation of one of our members last night we are going to launch a RUsers Kaggle Hackathon.The idea is get groups of local members together, groups can pick their team members and their projects and this will be a great way for people to learn, make contacts and even solve some great problems. All of this with mentorship and guidance from some of the top experts in JHB.

If you’re interested come talk to us on #kagglehackathon on our Slack Team (sign-up here)

If you’re not interested come along anyways and sign up to our Slack Team and talk to like-minded people or be a two by two matrix!

Presentation Resources:
