Under the hood of Alteryx: tips, tricks and how-tos.

One question we get all the time is How can I compete in the Grand Prix? Each year we mix up the format and qualification rounds. This year we went through User Groups and had each group nominate a "driver." The drivers went through a couple rounds of qualifications before they got a spot on the big stage in San Diego.

But what about those curious individuals who wonder...how do my skills compare to the drivers on stage? Well, have a go. Here's the link to Lap One of the 2016 Grand Prix! Post a screenshot in a spoiler tag of your solution and post your time too! There are 4 exercises total, and you can make sure you never miss one by subscribing to the Grand Prix Label.

Knowledge Base Weekly Exercise26905283974_2f7ca14f2f_m.jpg

 

Since the re-launch of the Alteryx Community, we've been posting a weekly exercise so that users can learn fundamentals, hone their techniques, and build new skills using Alteryx. We've now amassed about 30 exercises and we've been told that many people are using them to train their own teams. From basic parsing and data blending to more advanced parsing and data cleansing, date formatting, Time Series, spatial analysis, and even my personal favorite - regular expressions! There's a little bit of everything and we classify the exercise as beginner, intermediate or advanced.

 

There is no better way to learn Alteryx than to use Alteryx. Maybe next Inspire it will be you on stage hoisting the trophy overhead!
