Can you believe it? KDnuggets, this website, is 30 years old!

Do you know the history of KDnuggets? You can read our latest interview with KDnuggets founder Gregory Piatetsky-Shapiro right now to find out, but first have a look at the short video below to get a lay of the anniversary land.



We are going to celebrate all month long, as we get back to basics and back to study.

We have a pair of initiatives for the month that we want to share with you, and we hope you all get excited for both.


It's pretty crazy to think that this website — or any website, for that matter — has been around for 3 decades. I know I'm biased, but this has to stand as evidence of KDnuggets' worth in the community. I am humbled to be a part of such a legacy, and I look forward to 30 more years!

—Matthew Mayo, Editor-in-Chief, KDnuggets


Back To Basics


First, we want to mention our decision to steer our content back toward the basics, with updated content on foundational concepts for beginners. KDnuggets has long been a destination for newcomers looking to learn data science; however, the past 10 months have been dominated by the ChatGPT-accelerated AI revolution. Don't get us wrong, we will still be covering all the latest developments and technologies, by way of news, opinion, and tutorial, but we are making a concerted effort to update our introductory material to make sure it is fresh and current.

Back to Basics

To that end, keep an eye out for the Back To Basics badge that will be appearing on one article per day all month long. We have prepared an introductory data science pathway for our readers to follow should they be interested, and the chapters will be published in order, on a daily basis. By the end of the month, you should have moved from programming beginner to someone who is able to deploy a machine learning project of their own to the cloud. These are real skills, and we are stepping you through them all September long.


30 for 30


The other undertaking worth mentioning is 30 for 30. For 30 days in September, KDnuggets and O'Reilly have teamed up to give away one free O'Reilly ebook title per day — any title, winner's choice! Entering is easy — just subscribe to our newsletter, and then participate in the daily polls on Twitter and LinkedIn. That's it!

We're thrilled that you're able to celebrate our anniversary with us, and we chope you are looking forward to many more years together like we are.

We thank O'Reilly for their generous participation in this giveaway, and recognize them for being a truly pivotal partner throughout the history of KDnuggets.
