Data Skeptic Podcast + Data Sci Guide Giveaway!

You may have found this blog post because you heard about Data Sci Guide on the Data Skeptic Podcast. (If not, go give it a listen!)

Kyle Polich from Data Skeptic was nice enough to offer to give away a copy of the book the author he interviewed in the episode, Cameron Davidson-Pilon, wrote: Bayesian Methods for Hackers: Probabilistic Programming and Bayesian Inference to people who post reviews on Data Sci Guide. If you want to enter the giveaway, here are the instructions:

  1. Sign up for a account or log in.
  2. Browse through the list of all data science content or search the database to find something you want to review.
    (P.S. If you really want to review something that’s not posted yet, comment below or tweet @datasciguide and I’ll put it at the top of my list of content to enter!)
  3. Scroll to the bottom of the item’s page and fill out the rating/review form. If this is the first review you’ve posted on, you’ll have to wait a bit for me to approve it before it appears on the page (I’ll try to approve quickly!). You don’t have to fill out the survey that appears after you enter a rating, but if you do, it will both help other learners and help me build this site’s recommender system in the future!
  4. Tweet about your review with the hashtag #WinDSBook. To make it super easy, there is a temporary tweet link for this contest on each content post just below the existing Twitter button. Clicking that will compose a tweet for you!

Kyle will randomly select a hashtagged tweet to win the book on November 20, 2015. He can only ship it to US addresses.

Winners of previous DataSciGuide contests (there was one!) aren’t eligible to win this one, but we will count previously-entered reviews in this contest if you do the 4th step above and tweet the hashtag.

Again, thanks to Data Skeptic Podcast for featuring DataSciGuide and giving one of our reviewers Cameron Davidson-Pilon’s new book!
