    • Designer Desktop Certification path includes Micro-Credentials as well as the Core, Advanced and Expert Certifications.  
    • Discussed exam resources: prep guides and video, practice exam, tool masteries, learning paths, interactive lessons and weekly challenges.   
    • Reviewed some practice questions
    • Lexi Westendorf from MedPro Group shared how she was able to go from Alteryx Designer newbie to Core Certified in one week!  She shared her approach and the resources she used throughout the process.  Really Impressive!!! 


  • @patrick_digan presented on Alteryx Calgary Files
    • Provided a quick demo of API that was used to download the data for the presentation.  This was a great bonus tip and showed how simple this process can be.

    • Overview of some blogs recently posted on the Community.
    • Tip of the Day - Undo/Redo Stack
