2022.1.1.30569 Patch Release Update

The 2022.1.1.30569 Patch/Minor release has been removed from the Download Portal due to a missing signature in some of the included files. This causes the files to not be recognized as valid files provided by Alteryx and might trigger warning messages by some 3rd party programs. If you installed the 2022.1.1.30569 release, we recommend that you reinstall the patch.

    2. I find myself on Stack Overflow alot and have been playing around on d3js.org for custom visualizations.
    3. Using Alteryx for POCs around predictive analytics.
    4. Right now concentrating on R and Python for data analysis/predictive analytics.
    5. Astros are the closest unless Brock somehow finds some accuracy. I'd like for it to be the Texans.

Thanks
