Course Project Forecasting Walmart Sales

Forecasting Walmart Sales

In this project I will use data from the Kaggle competition: Walmart Recruiting - Store Sales Forecasting. The goal of this project is to build an useful machine learning model that can predict sales with resonable accuracy based on historic sales data. This individual project is part of the requirements of the Machine Learning with Python: Zero to GBMs course, a free, online certification course, hosted on Jovian.
