Data Elixir is a weekly newsletter that I founded and curate for data science and engineering professionals. Each issue covers a variety of topics, including news items, tutorials, tools, resources, and data visualizations.
Data Elixir began as a weekly newsletter “for data enthusiasts and developers.” The first issue had 0 subscribers so it was really a newsletter for myself that tracked resources that interested me. By week 2, my wife subscribed too! Week 3, there were 8 subscribers. By week 6, there were 300 subscribers. And then I advertised a bit on Twitter and it grew fast. Seven months in, there were over 10K subscribers! I was paying attention to their interests too at that point and Data Elixir had grown into a general resource for the Data Science community.
I’m not sure where it’s going but it’s a super engaged audience, growth has been consistent, and it’s an awesome project, all around.
