Congrats Quoc Le

Congratulations to Quoc Le for winning the first money competition of Drivendata. We would really like to know more about your approach.

Are we allowed to share code and approach on the forums?

Thanks abhishek and kappa! I am also really interested in your approaches. I am cleaning up my code and putting together documentation now. I didn’t do anything fancy, but I am looking forward to comparing approaches whenever we have the green light.

Also I really wanted to thank DataDriven.org and ERS for hosting/sponsoring the competition. It is great to have this channel for practicing our craft while doing social good. Looking forward to future competitions.

@abhishek @quocnle - share away, guys! :pencil:

Just for the record, sharing during the competition will normally be fine as long as it’s on the forum so everyone gets to learn. For example, the rules for Box-Plots made that acceptable. (I suppose it’s possible there could be competitions in the future with no sharing during the competition, but that would be special circumstances.)

So eventually the code we gather will be shared on Github under a permissive OSS license (we chose MIT), but feel free to discuss/share here.

Edit to add: If a team/person decides to share, maybe each can make their own thread and mark it within the Box-plots for Education category? That way, everyone’s method can get their own discussion!

Thanks stasg7, congrats to you too! I am in the same boat and I hope to have my detailed solution documented and ready to share very soon. Looking forward to learning from your and everyone’s solutions as well.

Congratulations Quoc Le, as well as everyone else who competed. I did a fairly brief write up of my experience during the competition over on my blog for those who are curious.

@JesseBuesking - thanks for sharing your process via blog post. This is exactly the kind of transparent, “lab notebook” stuff I love to read and which you don’t always get from posts about ML.
