I am new to data science and have taken part in 3 kaggle competitions. What if we form a data science community here , learn together and then take part in competitions together? Discuss issues on a daily basis, information about different courses etc?

@Aditi Parikh I'm definitely interested. I've never done a Kaggle comp before, I've wanted to for a while and not really got around to it. But having a team set up and others to work with would motivate me a little more!

Which competitions have you already entered?

Are there any particular areas of Data Science that interest you? Any particular competitions you want to enter next?

In the previous version of coursera data science community ,forming a group for kaggle contests was already discussed . https://www.coursera.org/learn/data-science-community/discussions/all/threads/tcOjh8SCEei1BQr4yq4EXg
I think you cannot access the above link if you were not a participant in the previous community . There a telegram group was created for people of coursera to participate in kaggle contests . Invitations to that group were made open to anyone . Here is invitation link to telegram group:
