Did you know there are even more data science tools available for Alteryx, beyond what you see in your Designer palettes, for statistics, data prep, modeling and more?

In this week’s episode of our Alter Everything podcast, Chris @mceleavey talks about building his own Alteryx tools. One of Chris’s projects is especially helpful for many modeling tasks: a one-hot encoding tool that handles that pesky but important step. (He also wrote a blog post about one-hot encoding!)

 

Alongside Chris’s work, there are many more useful tools for data science in the Alteryx Analytics Gallery, our public repository of workflows, macros and analytic apps. Many of these tools reside in the Predictive District, but we scrounged up more from other corners of the Gallery.

Here’s a list of freely available macros, tools and sample workflows for data science tasks that might save you time and effort, plus a bonus package of tools developed by Alteryx enthusiasts.

For Time Series Analysis Fans

 

 


And a bonus item: The ayx-builders pack on Github, created by @nick612haylund and @tlarsen7572, offers multiple handy tools for data science tasks, including a data generator and a Twitter scraping tool.

 

With these free tools, you can extend the data science capabilities of Designer and finish projects more easily and efficiently. 

 

And, of course, be sure to listen to the Alter Everything conversation with Chris for inspiration, then share your own custom creations.
