Alteryx Standards Document [Feedback Requested]


Hi Alteryx Community, 


This is more of an offering and a request for feedback rather than a problem.  When there are multiple Alteryx users in different parts of the corporation, it is good to have a common standards document to show all the developers "what good looks like" for developing workflows and generally existing in the corporate environment.  I'm developing one for use in my corporation but as a start I used the community references I found (list below).  There shouldn't be any corporate proprietary information in this copy. The advice is largely from community but just structured in a "Corporate Standards" type way.  It is more of a shell than a completed work.  I invite your feedback on what good articles I've missed and on how to do it better.  In the couple sections that are blank, I'd appreciate links to good articles and I'll continue to evolve the document for a couple weeks.  


Your thoughts and feedback would be most appreciated.


Thanks, -Hayes

Love the work to get people in your org on the same page.  Much easier to get new users off to the right foot than working to re-train once things have hit scale.  For the Python and R section of your document here's a few of my favorite resources to get people up and running:
