For those who’ve followed my Community blogs in the past, you’ll know that I’m passionate about giving back some of my time and skills in analytics to charities and organisations that are really trying to change the world for the better. Thanks to Alteryx for Good, I get to contribute many hours of my working time to these projects, and I’d like to tell you more about my latest adventure!
I love building Alteryx workflows. I love working for Alteryx. I cannot begin to describe how much I loved doing this project for Luvin Arms. Their use case was so simple, yet without software – so overwhelming.
Last weekend was the climax of nearly two months work as part of my Alteryx for Good project. This work has encompassed huge amounts of data preparation (particularly using open data that was recently released by the UK’s Department of the Environment, Food and Rural Affairs – DEFRA), spatial analytics and advanced analytics. All this hard work culmlinated in a 12-hour focussed data dive to show the charities involved the ‘art of the possible’ in terms of using such amazing data sources in combination with analytics.
