My Motivation for This Blog

Again, this is NOT a blog about tutorials.

❓ Why

As a researcher who has been involved in various projects and experiments, I have come across numerous instances of incorrect practices being used with common research tools. This incorrect usage has led to flawed results and wasted time.

I must admit that I too have made some mistakes along the way. However, through my journey, I have learned valuable lessons that have greatly improved my understanding of these tools and their proper usage.

I am eager to share my experiences, insights, and best practices, as if I hoped that there were someone did the same for me when I was a beginner.

⚠️ The Importance

I don’t think I need to emphasize the importance of best practices in research.

Moreover, inappropriate practices can affect other users becuase they often lead to abuse of shared resources. In the end, it makes the workflow inefficient for everyone.

As researchers, we strive to make meaningful contributions to our domains. Employing the right practices with research tools plays a pivotal role in achieving that goal.

🏗️ Bridging the Gap

As a newcomer to the world of research tools, I often found it challenging to locate comprehensive, easy-to-understand resources. Existing documentation can be dense, technical, and difficult to grasp, especially for beginners.

My aim in running this blog is to bridge that knowledge gap and provide fellow researchers, particularly newcomers, with practical insights and tips to effectively utilize these tools. I want to make the learning curve less steep for others than it was for me.
