Hello All!

Santa (actually, I am) is late for Christmas this year. I am starting this thread in the community to discuss implementations and solutions to the Kaggle X-Mas challenge for 2022!

For those of you who don’t know, Kaggle it is a site intended for promoting data science through courses and challenges. Every X-Mas they have a special optimization challenge.

This year, I decided to implement their “Getting started with Santa 2022” workbook ( which provide a naïve way of solving this problem.
