Kaggle Competition Past Solutions

[edit: last update at 2014/06/27. My apologies, have been very busy the past few months.]

We learn more from code, and from great code. Not necessarily always the 1st ranking solution, because we also learn what makes a stellar and just a good solution. I will post solutions I came upon so we can all learn to become better!

I collected the following source code and interesting discussions from the Kaggle held competitions for learning purposes. Not all competitions are listed because I am only manually collecting them, also some competitions are not listed due to no one sharing. I will add more as time goes by. Thank you.

    Thanks so much for this. As a novice Kaggler this will be really beneficial. I shall try and assist to make the list more comprehensive by working on some of the other competitions and sending them through.
