I'm curious to hear if you've used Alteryx outside of your usual day-job to take on a fun project or help something in your personal life. I used Alteryx to connect to an API for a video game I play to crunch some numbers on the best items to use. I'm sure some of you out there have some very creative workflows!
I forgot - two more: 😄
Nothing quite as craft as @mceleavey's solution 😁
But i've used the wordcount and NLP tools for a few surveys i have given out in the past, they were fun to use!
I also built myself a chess opening suggestor based on the Kaggle chess dataset (https://www.kaggle.com/datasnaek/chess) as i wanted to surprise some people at my rank with unconventional openings.
Also earlier this year i started plotting data about myself (steps in a day (understandably not that many nowadays 😁), hours slept, time slept, calories intook, weight etc) and I hope to add additional factors too. I'm interested in having a years data and seeing what conclusions I can make from it (even if it is just, I'm terribly unhealthy haha)!
I'm sorry about the 100 posts, but I forgot one more!
There is a challenge to hike all of the trails in the Chattahoochee River National Recreation Area (a series of parks in the Atlanta, GA area), so I have a workflow that compares my AllTrails GPS recording to the NPS trail spatial data to see if I've completed a segment or not.
I try not to do too much non-work stuff with company software/hardware (unless it's related to our internal user group). However, I haven't quite figured my way around the spatial libraries in Python, and Alteryx makes this type of spatial matching soooo easy.
@mceleavey I'd love to hear more specifics on what you did with your Spotify data!
@Joe_Lipski I'd love to hear more details on your gym and travel tracking... What types of metrics did you look at?
@TheOC, make sure to report back once you've collected your quantified self data and had a chance to work with it!
