Thanksgiving is just behind us in the States. The air is crisp and bright, so it must be time for the Advent of Code to begin!!
Advent of Code is an Advent calendar of programming challenges. Unlike our Community's Weekly Challenges, of which I'm a huge fan, these challenges aren't uniquely situated for Alteryx. Rather, you're encouraged to solve in the programming language of your choice. Since Alteryx is in many ways like a programming language, it's a natural choice for solving.
But we're not going to run amok with custom code, Python and R libraries. Rather, we will stick to the tools that everyone has when they purchase Alteryx. ACEs coined the term "BaseA" at Inspire 2019 in London, which has some basic rules:
  • No RunCommand tool
  • No Python tool
  • No R tool
  • No SDK based Custom Tools (macros are fine)
  • No Formula SDK extensions
  • Download tool allowed for downloading (no posting to APIs to get answers from!)

Join us as we attempt to boldly solve where Alteryx has never taken us before. Share our twists and turns as we solve, and solve along with us! We would love to have you on the journey. Please follow along in the Community Lounge and on Twitter #AlteryxOfCode.

To infinity and beyond!!
