In this first chapter, you will get exposure to the Kaggle competition process. You will train a model and prepare a csv file ready for submission. You will learn the difference between Public and Private test splits, and how to prevent overfitting.
Now that you know the basics of Kaggle competitions, you will learn how to study the specific problem at hand. You will practice EDA and get to establish correct local validation strategies. You will also learn about data leakage.
You will now get exposure to different types of features. You will modify existing features and create new ones. Also, you will treat the missing data accordingly.
Time to bring everything together and build some models! In this last chapter, you will build a base model before tuning some hyperparameters and improving your results with ensembles. You will then get some final tips and tricks to help you compete more efficiently.
