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 tidbits about data science.

Now we want to turn the tables. We’re inviting 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 60,000 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 so far with our readers:

Introducing Rodeo
7 Funny Data Sets
11 Python Libraries You Might Not Know
Fitting & Interpreting Linear Models in R
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.


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 December 5, 2015.

We’ll send all entrants some Yhat schwag (e.g. stickers, t shirt, etc.), and will notify winners by Jan 5, 2015. Winning blogposts will be published in early 2016.

Thanks in advance for considering--we’re psyched to read your submissions!
