This is how I have been using org-babel recently. In particulary, I use
it as a journal for my exploratory data analyses (EDA), mainly in Python
and R.

I find that using a month-tree format, similar to org-capture with
:tree-type month [1], works well for organizing my EDA sections/notes.

Figures I create are named like so:


e.g., "fig/eda/210607-celltype-heatmap.png".

I found this workflow keeps things fairly neat, without having to think
too much about how I'm going to organize and name everything. Perfect
for trying out new ideas, iterating quickly, and having an easy to refer
to log of what I've already tried.
