Contest Guidelines

Our goal for this blog is to deliver great, informative teaching content. We believe that data science is for everyone, and we want it to be accessible by everyone. We also believe that learning from your peers is one of the best ways to gain new information and insight on data science trends. We want this blog to be a place where people can share their ideas and content, no matter the skill level.

Additionally, our goal for the contest is to make our contributors more knowledgeable data scientists. As part of the community, we want you to grow as well, and how better to grow than to attend one of our data science bootcamps!
