We will once again have three final contestants racing to solve a series of data challenges faster than their competitors. The goal of the evening: to prove which contestant is the master of the workflow.

If you're eager to flex your Alteryx muscle in front of a roaring crowd, make sure to throw your hat in the ring for the 2018 Alteryx Grand Prix!
