When I was asked to write a blog about “how I got to where I am today” I thought that maybe the intent was to have a quick summary of historical events followed by instant success, (e.g. “then I found Alteryx and my career really took off!”) In reality, it followed a more roundabout path.
During March 20th and 21st, Alteryx held their first Inspire APAC Conference on Tour in Sydney with over 800 people coming from all of APAC together to the international convention centre in Sydney to learn and share their experiences.
Over the course of the past year or so, I’ve had quite a few opportunities to share the story my “self-taught journey” with Alteryx. But the truth is that there has not been a single moment along this path where I have felt like I was tackling anything entirely on my own!
For me, 2018 was the year of presenting at Alteryx Inspire(s) and it might surprise you that it was the first time that I stepped out of my comfort zone and got on stage in front of 300+ Alteryx enthusiasts in both Anaheim and London! I hope that over the next 5 minutes of you reading this I can inspire you to submit your demo tape, jump on stage, and rock out in front of hundreds of supportive Alteryx Inspire attendees at Inspire 2019 in Nashville.
Being an ACE is hard. I often times think, “what the heck am I doing even being associated with these brilliant people." It’s intimidating, because somehow I was able to get to this point and I should know everything.
A lot has happened in the Community since the last highlights blog — we launched version 5.0, we released the first season of Road to Inspire, and most notably the Inspire conference came and went faster than we ever would have imagined.
The ACE program is designed to enable the community supporting the community. You probably have noticed that our ACEs are very prominent across the Alteryx community. From supporting users on community, blogging about their experiences and projects to leading an Alteryx user group, there are a variety of ways for users to engage. Those engagements lead to the ACE designation.
