Want a FREE Pass to Alteryx Inspire 2017 in Las Vegas?


All you have to do is share some images of your most beautifully satisfying work of art – your Alteryx Workflows! Maybe you go to great lengths to align all your tools, or have a dozen disparate connections that funnel perfectly into a single tool. Maybe you document in Haiku. Perhaps when you hit run, the connecting lines pulse in a synchronized harmony that is reminiscent of a classical orchestra.


I’ve been reading the iconic best seller, “Zen and the Art of Motorcycle Maintenance.” I am stunned by today's news that the author, Rober Pirsig, has passed away. Pirsig draws so many parallels to our life’s work and how we maintain the engines that keep our lives in motion. The beauty of an engine, be it schematic or in its function, is infinite. I don’t want to go too deep down the rabbit hole of philosophy, but I'd like to see your workflows – workflows that you find beautiful, exude your definition of quality, and are worthy of your efforts to maintain it.


How to Participate

You can submit your art right here, as many times as you’d like. We don’t need the yxmd, unless you want to share it. You need only upload a screenshot, gif, or any image of an Alteryx workflow that conveys your Alteryx Zen. Your submissions will be featured at Inspire Las Vegas within the Community Hub to bring a little Zen to the Solution Center.


Important Dates

  • Submit your entries below by May 11th at noon Pacific.
  • We will announce  a winner on May 12th at noon Pacific. 

The winner will be chosen based on a combination of how many stars you receive and what moves us. Everyone who submits their art will be awarded The Zen and the Art of Workflow Maintenance badge and a special piece of limited edition swag we’re making just for the conference. You do not need to be in attendance at Inspire to get the goods, but perhaps your goods will get you there for free!

Just for fun...


Here's our KCCO visual aid that we share with our Gallery users to begin attempting to explain the Alteryx Gallery nomenclature and structure...

In light-hearted humor, this definitely helps to begin 'painting the picture' for our new Artisans and Curators.

(and yes, I'm aware that I misspelled nomenclature in the sub-title)
