All DataGiri articles follow the following template:
- Grab Attention: Here’s where you grab the reader’s attention, and let them know how this topic relates to his or her Data Science experiences.
- Intro: Introduce what problem you intend to solve OR method that you propose, to prepare the reader for what’s to expect.
- Substantiate: Flesh out the key ideas. Use Text and Diagrams to get your points across. Actual screenshots and code snippets are welcome. Links to Git Repos add authenticity.
- Next steps: Offer a clear road ahead. Where do you ideally wish to take this analysis. Suggestions on what to read + larger ideas that can solve the problem better will help people get back to you better. You can also solicit feedback, reviews and inputs.
QUESTIONS TO CONSIDER
Before you start writing your article, consider:
- What do you want to share with readers?
- Who is your audience?
- How did you learn about this?
- What else has been written on this topic?
- What examples can you think of that support your main point?
- Length: DataGiri articles are between 300-600 words long.,
- PoV: DataGiri articles are written from a 3rd person point of view as much as possible. Obviously, any narrative you tell about your own experience should be in the 1st person, but that said, we avoid second person.
- Research: We rely on research to support our theories, so please link to relevant articles if you are making a statement that someone else has also made, or provide your own data if your team has learned something through practice.
- Show, don’t tell: Rather than telling the readers, we ask that authors show us through examples. Tell a visual story.
- We aren’t the place for sales: Articles aren’t the place to showcase your cool new product. Articles are the place, however, to share the problem-centered thinking behind your cool new product.
