Getting Started with Analytics Part 3 (you are here)
There are a lot of useful resources on the Alteryx Academy in the Alteryx Community. The Community page is continually updated. For example, when I started learning Alteryx a couple of years back, there was no section dedicated to Learning Paths and the interactive lessons did not include “Parsing data” and “Predictive.”
For the uninitiated, just looking through all the good stuff available there takes time and one may be tempted to try a bit everything… which can be sub-optimal.
I had a quick look at the “Getting Started Learning Path.” While it is helpful as a comprehensive guide to everything and is organized by topics, my first reaction is it can be a bit overwhelming since it is designed to give the user quite extensive knowledge on a particular topic. Helpful for experienced and seasoned users and full-time students, but could be too heavy front-loading for a beginner, especially one who moonlights an hour or so every day after work (like myself).
Personally, I prefer bite-sized stepwise learning to first grasp the “core” then progress to “advanced.”
Here is the “recipe” that I used to learn Alteryx for myself and to teach Alteryx to my team towards “Core” certification:
