Official account: you er hut
Hello, everyone. I’m Yule cabin. My English name is Yule cottage. I’m three years old today! Happy Birthday to Yule 🍰
Hello, I’m Peter. Today is the third anniversary of the establishment of youer cottage.
You erxiao, born on July 10, 2019, in Siming District, Xiamen City, Fujian Province
In the past three years, you erhou followed me from Xiamen to many places: Xiamen, Longyan, Quanzhou, Zhangzhou, Fuzhou, Putian, Shenzhen, Zhuhai, Dongguan, Huizhou, Qingyuan, Changsha, Changde, Zhangjiajie, Jingzhou, Wuhan, Yichang It grows day by day and becomes more and more substantial, so do I~

Why is there the birth of a cabin? Why is it called youer cabin? Many readers have asked me such questions backstage. I haven’t answered seriously. Let’s talk about it today~
The birth of youer cabin
Because of working after graduation, I came into contact with Python, database, Linux… And gradually realized that I had stepped into the Internet
So I study almost crazily: Python, database, visualization, pandas, numpy, HTML, machine learning, crawler, regular expression, NLP, Linux, docker, recommendation system, etc. At that time, in addition to the company and dormitory, the most frequently visited place was Xiamen Library.
While learning by myself, I always want to record what I have learned. I don’t know why I want to record them. I always feel that if I don’t write them down, these knowledge points are like a plate of loose sand, which may slip away from me at any time. In the end, I still can’t do anything.
At first, I used Youdao notes and impression notes, most of which were Youdao notes. No matter how big or small the knowledge points are recorded, even the installation of Python environment will be written into a document.
Taking notes is a very enjoyable process for me: slowly digest a knowledge point in my own way and turn it into my own skills; You can also see your growth path by storing them on your computer and browsing them from time to time:
- Python note 1: environment installation
- Python note 2: List
- Python note 3: tuples
- Python note 4: Dictionary
Teacher Wu Enda’s machine learning notes:
- Wu Enda’s notes 1: supervised learning and unsupervised learning
- Wu Enda’s Notes 2: gradient descent and normal equation
- Wu Enda’s notes 3: regression problem and regularization
In the process of learning, I bought a lot of books, browsed the blogs of many tycoons (which will be introduced specifically in the future), often read many of their articles, and learned a lot; I learned about many Internet writing platforms: Zhihu, Nuggets, SIFO, CSDN, info, blog Park, Hejing community, Tencent cloud community, and even GitHub.
At the same time, they also pay attention to many official account. Slowly, I also want to have a platform that can write, speak, record my life, work and growth, and bring up my articles at the same time: because I can check and review my notes at any time. On the official website of Tencent official account, there is a sentence:
No matter how small an individual is, it also has its own brand
This is the case in the Internet age. The value of personal IP is no longer underestimated. So in early July 2019, I began to prepare to apply for official account. Here comes the problem:
Thinking 1: what is the public call?
Most of the official account I follow are like this:
Such a name is very intuitive, common, but also stereotyped. I began to think: what should my number be called. At the beginning, I also followed the trend and thought a few: Python learning notes, Peter learning python, Peter machine learning journey
But I denied them one by one. Later, I didn’t know which day it was. I thought of an English novel I had read: “the cat in the Yule cabin”. This novel is a new English novelist lily Hayward Lili Hayward’s work, in which she introduced: she likes all mysterious and historical things.
Everything that seems to have passed away has never left. The love and warmth you give me makes me cling here.
The name was instantly decided: yur cabin. But when I applied to Tencent’s official website, the system prompted that it had been occupied, but I really wanted to have this name, so I took an alias: you er hut.
In this way, the hut was born~
What do you write in your hut?
After the birth of the cabin, I want to write directly in the background of wechat official account. At first, I was confused about the backstage of wechat official account, and I felt that my writing was particularly slow. In addition, I didn’t seem to be sure what topic I wanted to write. I paused for a while and still wrote and took notes on my own proprietary note taking system.
I still remember when the epidemic was at home in 2020, I read a lot of books: “read a Book – Fan Deng reading method”, “milk and cola economics”, “dog money”, “growth hacker”, “the world’s simplest accounting book”, etc., and moved some reading notes and simple summaries into the cabin.
There are also some records of life: Shenzhen punch in Tanglang mountain, Shenzhen punch in Shenzhen Bay Park, Shenzhen punch in Yangtai mountain, etc.
Later, because I often cook, I came up with a good theme: food. I want to be a food blogger and teach my fans to cook in the cabin. At the beginning of 2021, I wrote an article without shame, setting a goal for myself: write 50 food articles in 2021 😭 Finally, I broke my promise ~ but I wrote 150 + technical articles, which is worthy of fans 😄
There are still some recipes in the cabin. Have a look:
Shrimp with minced garlic and vermicelli
Bread and egg cake
Thinking 2: how to position official account?
I wrote a few recipes, and the amount of reading is average. It seems that I don’t have much motivation. I have been following three food bloggers on Tiktok, and my account is doing well.
Watching their videos often can also learn a lot of dishes. As their fans and users of Tiktok app (it can be said that products), they gradually realize that the theme of food seems not suitable for a large number of words to express, and the impact and intuitive effect of short videos should be more suitable for food.
So I thought: what theme is better to choose? After careful thinking, I will write technical articles: record my technological learning process bit by bit. Why do so many technology gurus like to blog? There are many reasons, please see the answer here ➡️ Look, the general reasons are as follows:
- Be able to make friends with like-minded people
- Writing is for better thinking
- “Teaching” is the best “learning”
- Discussion is a great reflection
- Motivate yourself to continue to learn and think
- Learn to do one thing consistently
In this way, the theme of the cabin was finalized: technology, especially Python and data related technology.
The production weapon of youer hut
At first, I have been writing in Youdao notes and impression notes in a way similar to word typesetting. Later, I contacted markdown (reply to markdown in the background to obtain ppt), which can be said to have completely abandoned word, and it has also become the only weapon for me to write. This article you see is written by markdown.
At first, I didn’t associate markdown with the writing of official account, but only wrote in the local typora.
Thinking 3: how to write quickly and efficiently?
With his continuous exploration and consulting with many of his master friends, he finally formed six sharp tools that Peter now writes:
- Jupiter Notebook: writing code and exporting markdown documents
- Typora: written by local markdown
- Xmind/light: mind mapping tool
- IPIC: drawing bed tool
- Mdnice: markdown document beautification, seamless connection with official account
- 135 editor: Article Collection
The six tools match perfectly~
How did the hut grow up?
Now you can see that the technical articles in the cabin involve python, machine learning, pandas, crawlers, databases, visualization, kaggle, statistics, data analysis, etc., and the in-depth learning is also slowly in progress~
Peter is not a computer or software major, but a half baked. The technology itself and the writing of official account are advancing in continuous learning and exploration~
I have never been a pure science student, and I can’t immediately absorb and understand mathematics, formula derivation, and those complex theories and logics. I need time to digest. What I like is “self feeling”. I understand a matter in my own way. Therefore, in the process of learning technology and taking notes, I prefer to explain the internal process of a knowledge point with some straightforward but practical examples and diagrams.
Whether it’s screenshots to express views, or mind maps or flow charts, diagrams are an important tool for me to express ideas. Fans can see many pictures of the articles in the hut. There is a fairly good serial article in the cabin: “illustrated pandas”
This is also the key factor for the growth of youer hut in the past two years
Pandas is a python third-party data analysis library, which can do a lot of data processing work. As a data analyst, Xiaobian must master pandas.
In the whole technology industry, especially in the big data industry with artificial intelligence and machine learning as the mainstream, pandas is a very basic library, but it is also a technical point that must be mastered.
Thinking point 4: what is the core competitiveness of youer hut?
I paid attention to many numbers related to python, data and artificial intelligence, and found that no number owner could write technical articles in this direction with pandas as as the theme, so I boldly tried: “everything starts with exploding functions”.
I began to write the articles of pandas serial series systematically. At the beginning, the reading volume was very low. I wrote them for nearly half a year, and finally they were recognized by fan friends and account owners.
Thank your fans
Gradually, I found that my readers liked my writing style very much, and especially the cabin grew and grew. In the past 2-3 years when I insisted on writing, many fans from all over the country and even abroad lived in the cabin: teachers and students from colleges and universities, working partners, and friends who are interested in Python or data.
You can see that the first place is a friend from Beijing. Beijing, Shanghai, Shenzhen, Guangzhou and Hangzhou, the top five cities, happen to be the first tier Internet cities in China.
