I'd like to hear more about getting Alteryx into schools. I have a finance intern this summer and introducing him to Alteryx has changed his outlook on Data Science and what he will study his final university year. He was able to get onboarded and start his Alteryx journey before his internship started as he was able to get a student license. BIG THANK YOU to Alteryx for that program! My question is how is Alteryx expanding on and recruiting in the Alteryx Community for the Alteryx for Good Co-Lab program? I've talked to so many students who are learning and being certified in Excel but haven't seen Alteryx.
I want to thank all of you that could attend the live Q&A session this morning. The community really brought their A-Game when it came to the questions that were asked, and @DeanS was incredibly engaging and thoughtful in his responses on the air. I had a blast hosting and facilitating, and it was such a good turnout, that we have plenty more questions that came through. We'll be working on some follow-up content over the next several days, so if we didn't get back to you on the air, know that it's coming (and so are the badges that you'll be getting for participating and attending the webinar)!
If you missed the live event, we'll be adding a video to the community soon so you can watch it and catch up! We also made an announcement that one lucky attendee would be getting a FREE pass to Analyticon in 2021, and through the magic of random number generators, we have our winner! Drumroll please... The winner of a pass to Analyticon next year is none other than our very own community member, @meprice!!! We'll be reaching out to you soon with details, but know that we're very excited to have a member of the community as our winner. I hope you all get a chance to congratulate our winner, and that you enjoyed this morning's event!

Thank you so much @DeanS and @WillM for hosting this event! I loved the thoughtful answers and candid responses. My favorite quote from the event was:
"Either define the future or the future will define you" -Dean Stoecker
I have memorialized it in a sticky note on my monitor.
I loved the thoughtful question from @meprice about using the power of data for good and I would like to recommend a book to you about just that subject. I read it while completing my undergrad and it has really stuck with me. Its called Weapons of Math Destruction by Cathy O'Neil. In the book, she explores how algorithms can reinforce preexisting inequalities unintentionally.
Thank you again and I look forward to more community events!
