6:40 PM - 7:30 PM

Please note this section of the event is not a training session and will not be led by anyone. Instead, we'll sit with every attendee for a few minutes each and go over their Technology Stack knowledge question. Our reference will be the Kaggle Learn center. We'll be there for your questions over the extension of the session to answer questions you might have. This ideal for talents who are coming from an academic background or non-technical and would like to get tailored feedback as to where to start and what technology, to begin with. Some topics are Intro to SQL, Intro to Machine Learning, Machine Learning Explainability, etc. A complete list is provided here: http://bit.ly/PhillyTalentWorksWithKaggleLearn

If it's your first time we will send you an email to walk you through resources used by the PhillyTalent and LAN group frequently.

First Timers & Intermediate Levels:
You are encouraged to sign up on Kaggle before you come. During the 2nd part of the session, you will be working on a topic on Kaggle Learn or simply you can ask you questions. Everyone will get an opportunity to introduce what they are working on with the rest of the group. After the first section, invitations are sent out and introductions are made to the members who share the same competition interest. We'll provide guidance and ideas during the session for learning and practicing different Technology Stack topics (AWS, Winning on Kaggle competitions, etc.). We will also introduce you to the active mentors working on advanced problems from the group. Here is a link to a few selected Playlists from our Channel:
