Data Science Portal Landing page

We're excited to announce the third and final phase of our blog update project - the Alteryx Data Science Portal.

The Data Science Portal is everything you love about the Alteryx Community, but tuned specifically for the data scientist, both current and aspiring. Here you’ll be able to find all the great data science content we have to offer across our Academy, blogs and podcasts, discussions, and more — all in one place. In fact, we think that most of what the Portal has to offer will appeal to data scientists whether they’re Alteryx customers or not. Just check out today’s featured piece — Interpretability, Explainability, and Machine Learning — and you’ll see what I mean. So be sure to tell your friends to visit alteryx.com/data-science. And as always — let us know what you think!


Do you think there's a discussion in the community that should be surfaced in the curated feed? Simply go to the discussion posts, click on the ellipses, select "Notify Moderator" and mention that you think this topic is a good candidate for the Data Science Portal. 

 

Global Navigation

You can now get to the Data Science Portal right through the global header. In case you didn’t know, each option takes you to different places:

 


Community -Home - Community Landing Page
Data Science Portal - community.alteryx.com/datascience - our curated spot for all things data science
Alteryx - takes you to Alteryx.com

 

Blogs + Podcast Merged

We’ve removed the Podcast from the Programs category and folded it into the Blogs category. Whether you’re reading or listening, we’ve got you covered on all things analytics.

Quick Links - Podcast Players

We’ve added quick links to the various podcast players so it’s even easier to go subscribe to the Alter.Everything Podcast on your favorite streaming app.

Modern Emojis

We’ve upgraded our rich text editor to have modern emojis, similar to what you’d use in a text. We'll begin adding product icons in the new couple of releases - stay tuned for more additions! 😎 Simply click on the smiley face in the rich text editor to use them:

Login Speed

We’ve made some changes to our authentication system which has drastically increased the login speed. More to come on single sign-on towards the end of this year!

Learning Path Progress Bar

Because of the divergent nature of learning paths and value knowledge on a need-to-know basis, we have removed overall path progression progress bars to reflect this behavior.

Miscellaneous Bug Fixes and Updates

  • Fixed a bug where images didn’t show up correctly in Use Cases in international communities
  • Resolved an issue where attachment titles were showing in the blog cards
  • Additional localization on Academy Interactive Lessons


Feedback

Please keep the feedback coming by submitting a
community-related idea! If you run into a platform bug, you can also submit a ticket to us. 

Cheers,
Trey
