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.
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!
A couple images: the first pair are an example of a "controller" macro that drives an "iterative worker" in order to do prime factorization; the last is, well, just a workflow that pulls a lot of data from a lot of places.
I won't pass up Alteryx swag!
I was trying to copy a SQL query to Alteryx. As a first step, I wanted to get all the tables involved. One thing lead to another, and the list of all the tables turned out pretty nice:
Be mesmerized by the many colors of my Project Organizer workflow! This workflow brings me Zen by keeping me organized! No data required!
