Alteryxing the Advent of Code 2021

Hi Community,


It's almost time for this year's Advent Alteryx of Code. Who's up for taking part?


For those not familiar, this is a set of daily programming puzzles set by Eric Wastl set every day from the 1st to 25th December.

Sometimes these suit Alteryx, other times they don't!


The goal of the challenge is to do it using core Alteryx functionality only (and have some fun and learn some stuff). This means no R, Python or Command Line tools. 


We have a private leaderboard that you are welcome to join (code 453066-ca912f80), and hopefully, we will have a discussion page for each question and depending on how I get on a few blogs along the way!

Thank you so much for championing this again this year @jdunkerley79 - it's a great way to put our Alteryx skills to a test in new ways!

Feeling confident on Day 13. Only a matter of time until my hopes are dashed on the ocean floor.....

Day 14 - part 2 is big! Different approaches push different Alteryx limits (size, performance, etc).
