Write for the Yhat blog

by Elise |


At Yhat we get pretty excited about data science. We started this blog as a place to share interesting developments and insightful writings about data science.

Now we want to turn the tables. Every year we invite you, our readers, to write a guest blogpost and share your area of interest or expertise with the rest of the data science community.

Our blog got around 100,000 pageviews last month (thanks, guys!), so this is a chance to share your original content with a pretty big slice 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, website, or twitter feed to get a feel for what’s relevant.

As inspiration, these are the blog posts that have been most popular over the past few months with our reader. As you can see, general introductions and guides (SVM, Scikit-Learn) do really well, as do step-by-step analyses with code.

pandasql: Make python speak SQL
Scikit-Learn Cheat Sheet: Python Machine Learning

Why use SVM?


It’s pretty simple. Your post should be written by you. It's okay if it was published in print or online. Use as little or as much text as you need to explain your idea clearly.

Bonus points if you're working in Python and use our IDE, Rodeo.


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


Email your post to Elise at by the end of the month, February 28, 2017.

We’ll send all entrants some Yhat schwag (e.g. stickers, t shirt, etc.), and will notify winners by March 9. Winning blogposts will be published later that month.

Thanks in advance for considering--we’re excited to read your submissions and see what exciting projects folks are working on!
