Lessons From My First Kaggle Competition

How I chose my first Kaggle competition to enter and what I learned from doing it.

A little background

I find starting out in a new area of programming a somewhat daunting experience. I have been programming for the past 8 years, but only recently have developed a keen interest in Data Science. I want to share my experience to encourage you to take the plunge too!

I started out dipping my toe in the ocean of this vast topic with a couple of the Kaggle mini-courses. I didn’t need to learn how to write in Python, but I needed to equip myself with the tools to do the programming that I wanted. First up was Intro to Machine Learning — it seemed like a good place to start. As part of this course you contribute to an in course competition, but even after completing it, I didn’t feel prepared to do a public competition. Cue Intermediate Machine Learning, where I learned to use a new model and how to think deeper about a data problem.

International alternatives to Kaggle for Data Science / Machine Learning competitions

We’ve all heard of Kaggle, but that also means there’s more competition — recently, Kaggle reached 5 million users. Further, not all competitions are open to everyone in the world. Here’s the policy of one competition, for instance:

“Members of the Kaggle community who are not United States Citizens or legal permanent residents at the time of entry are allowed to participate in the Competition but are not eligible to win prizes. If a team has one or more members who are not prize eligible, then the entire team is not prize eligible.”

By trying out other competition platforms, you can be a “big fish in a small pond,” as there are a lot fewer competitors.

Keep in mind that AI competitions aren’t the end-all-be-all if you want to enter the industry, as you’ll need knowledge in statistics, computing, communication, and more — not just knowing how to build models.

Besides ranking in competitions, you’ll want to work on practical projects that you can share with the world. Ideally, your projects can resonate with non-technical audiences as well, such as hiring managers who often don’t understand the intricacies of the field. To do so, you can use no-code analytics tools like Apteo that let you share very simple and easy-to-understand analyses.

That being said, let’s dive in
