Join us on Thursday, March 10, in a slightly less formal format where Max Lin (Team "Record Me Men" - 2nd place) and Alex Lin (Team "Machine" - 4th place) will discuss their participation in and solutions to the R Package Recommendation Engine competition organized by the writers for dataists, a new blog for data hackers.   It was hosted on Kaggle, a new platform for data modeling and prediction competitions and created to support the great R user community.

John Myles White, one of the competition's organizers will also join us to share his insights. Thanks to all the organizers from dataists for putting the competition together!
