Yhat's Biannual Blog Contest

by carl |


We started this blog as a place to geek out together about data science, machine learning, engineering and the like.

Biannually/semi-annually (am I the only one who finds these synonyms counterintuitive?) we turn the tables and invite our readers to submit their original content to be featured on the Yhat blog. Our hope is to bring in new and fresh perspectives and give our audience a chance to share their interests and expertise with the rest of the data science community.

Our blog got around 60,000 pageviews last month (we love you, too), so this is a chance to share your original content with a pretty big chunk of the data science community.


We're interested in anything that relates to data, statistics, engineering, or machine learning. If you don’t already follow us, you might want to check out our previous posts and our twitter feed to get a feel for what’s relevant. Also, sieze the moment and sign up for our blog updates at the top of the page so you don't miss any more of our awesome posts!

To get your wheels spinning, here are the five most popular blogposts of 2016. Yours could be next!

Logistic Regression in Python
Introducing Rodeo
Fitting & Interpreting Linear Models in R
Building a (semi) Autonomous Drone with Python
Random Forests in Python


It’s pretty simple. Your post should be original and not previously published in print or online. We think 300 to 1000 words is reasonable, but that’s a guideline, not a rule. Use as little or as much text as you need to explain your idea clearly.


Our team will copy edit for grammar, punctuation, spelling etc. but won’t make any substantive changes without your approval.


Email your post to Elise at by June 1, 2016 to be considered.

We’ll send all entrants some Yhat schwag (e.g. stickers, t shirt, etc.), and will notify winners within a week (by June 8). Winning blogposts will be published shortly thereafter.

Thanks in advance for considering and best of luck...we can't wait to read what you're working on these days!
