At Data for Visualization, I help mostly developers and data scientists to make better decisions so they can create better visuals.
I believe that one way to create good visualization is working on it hard and learn from your mistakes. After all, you cannot improve yourself without failures, right?
It’s what I share here, my experience and knowhow.
So let’s talk about affiliate links.
Sometimes when I recommend or talk about a product, I link to the company’s website using what’s known as an affiliate or referral link. Basically, if you end up buying a product that you found via our link, I get a commission from the vendor as a small “thank you.”
Sometimes that commission is just a few dollars; sometimes it’s a little more. Sometimes it’s a one-time commission; sometimes it’s a rolling commission — so if you sign up for a monthly subscription service we might get a slice of that monthly fee.
But here’s the important thing — that referral doesn’t cost you a penny. The entire commission comes out of the vendor’s pocket, not yours.
So I’ll only recommend products that I’ve personally used or that come highly recommended by trusted peers.
Below, I listed my affiliates which I believe are trustworthy global companies.
- Udemy (courses up to 50% off)
- Coursera (online data science courses from top universities)
- Udacity ($50 off your nanodegree program)
- Treehouse (4 months off basic)
- DataCamp (learn data science by doing)
- Amazon (Data Visualization Books)
- Fiverr (Hire a Data Visualization Specialist, or see my guest post opportunities about data visualization)
