Anyone from Nigeria

Hello, Anyone here from Nigeria? I’ve been trying to find a good data science or machine learning meetup on here. If none exists, it should be possible for us to organize one!

pretty good, but am having a little problem here,

In Data Cleaning with R module, where i need to convert a data type from factor to numeric. i tried running the solution locally in R studio but i keep getting this (Error: object ‘Num of SAT Test Takers’ not found)

There’s a R programming section, you could post this there. So that more people might see it. Sorry, I can’t help though, I’m doing the python path.

wow, can’t believe i just figured it out. I didn’t install a package locally

Welcome, Stanley. What path are you on? And how has it been?

Hi, guys, could you discuss your experience with learning on this platform and your motivations. In relation to the Nigerian condition. Also if you have friends who are also on this platform, please feel free to direct them here. The more the merrier… I think.
Also here is a link to the Kaggle data scientist survey for 2019. Please take time to fill it correctly and completely, it helps Kaggle make reports about current and upcoming Data scientists or analysts, which provides information for investors and businesses. Happy Learning.

With little knowledge gain, I have been able to rank top in some kaggle competitions.
