Is there any formal guidelines / structure for the meetup groups? as the meetups will carry the analytics vidhya brand name.

Congrats, Kunal and the AV Team. The AV portal and more recently the discussion forum have been a wonderful source of information on this field, especially as it relates to its presence in India. Looking forward to many more years of success.

@karthe1,

We are also evolving in the process. The main guideline to go by are:

  1. The meetup should add value to the people who attend
  2. Should have a defined road map for a few meetups so that people have a go to state in mind
  3. Should have a few experienced members so that they can guide the rest of the population.

We think that the best format for meetups is through half day long (or longer) hackathons, where people get ample time for hands on experience.

Over time, we may have a few kits on Kaggle problems / common datasets, which people can use directly to host these events.

As I said, most of these are guidelines right now. We are evolving in the process. If you have any thoughts, please feel free to share and discuss.

Regards,
Kunal
