Data Science Blogathon 21st Edition

The best way to learn any concept, especially in Data Tech, is by sharing about it. That not only helps you understand what you learned in more detail, but sharing it with the community helps others understand how a particular Data Tech idea works.

Analytics Vidhya has always been at the forefront of knowledge sharing, and we want to continue this trend among our community members/thought leaders/ industry experts.  

We are delighted to announce the launch of Analytics Vidhya’s Data Science Blogathon 21st Edition. We have published approximately 4000 articles written by 700+ authors on various topics in Data Science such as Machine Learning, Deep Learning, Data Engineering, etc. And, we are aiming to make it bigger.

We will not only publish the best articles on Analytics Vidhya’s blog, but also provide feedback to every writer on their article. Along with recognition in front of a global audience, there are lucrative prizes to be won also! Are you ready to join our 'Data Science Community'?

In this edition, we are coming up with an Author Referral Program. This will help our existing authors to invite their peers/friends/leaders/gurus to share their knowledge with the community as well.
