Advent Of Code


Who is interested in seeing how many of the problems they can solve using Alteryx?


From the website:


"Advent of Code is an Advent calendar of small programming puzzles for a variety of skill sets and skill levels that can be solved in any programming language you like. People use them as a speed contestinterview prepcompany traininguniversity courseworkpractice problems, or to challenge each other."


Think of it as a weekly challenge type exercise every day till Christmas!


Days 1-4 are very solvable with Alteryx and I am curious to see how many days will be solvable without reaching for the SDK ;)


James Dunkerley has set up a private leaderboard for Alteryx solvers, which you can join with this key 453066-ca912f80.


Hopefully see you there!

Now that Python is built in, that's another easy cheat. ;-)

No cheating :) - no Python or R.

Day 8 has been fiddly to say the least, but all are do able so far.

We've solved all of the puzzles so far with the exception of the second part of Day 9. Various attempts have been made (@Claje, @jdunkerley79, @cgoodman3, @andyuttley), but they've all come up short so far...




Technically I think my day 9 solution could work for part 2...

I just might need a few months to find out.

Mine would have be a few weeks.
