Alteryx BUILD is our inaugural day-long hackathon. Spend the Monday of Inspire working by yourself or with a team on a project that leverages the Alteryx code free and code friendly platform. You'll have the opportunity to treat the day as a learning experience by collaborating with Alteryx developers and experts to bring your project vision to life. You will also get the chance to compete for prizes by submitting your project to judges at the end of the day on Monday. You choose your project — for example:
BUILD is free to attend - you may add this as a selection when registering for Inspire 2018.
If you're looking for a project idea or for a team to join, check out our team building exchange. The maximum team size is 5.
Finally, if you're struggling to come up with a project idea, we will be providing one that supports an Alteryx for Good cause. Check back here for updates. And feel free to post questions or comments below.
Super Excited about this!
@NeilR - I posted an idea relating to your example suggestion "Embed Alteryx analytics into an app by leveraging the Server API". Would we have access (at least temporarily) to a public Gallery of some sort?
@Coxta45 I'm thinking that providing a temporary Server license so that you can run it locally on your laptop might be the way to go so that you don't have to rely on internet during the event. What do you think?
I'm searching for an Alteryx for Good organisation in Australia to find a project I can bring, but I'm happy to work on anything internationally if that helps :)
Regardless, I'll be there and eager to help with anything :)
With Alteryx BUILD around the corner, we've got you covered with the material you need to succeed! Besides, of course, developer help for the official docs and Dev Space for discussions - both one click away from developers.alteryx.com, where else can you get information?
Whether you decide to treat the day as a data challenge and mine some data for new insight, or you treat the day as a hackathon and build a new tool or app, you'll likely need data.
The Alteryx community has been amassing a list of free data available online since 2015 and it's still active!
