Title: A Short Introduction to the Power of Design Patterns in Alteryx

Presenter: Joshua Burkow & Chris Goodman

Abstract: This session is brought to you by Joshua Burkow and Chris Goodman who are both Alteryx ACEs and co-authors of the popular Alteryx Blog If you like many others have been trying to master all the individual tools in Alteryx and its felt a lot like climbing up a hill in a snowstorm during an avalanche then you are at the right session! Join us as Joshua and Chris walk you through how thinking about design patterns and shifting from a developer mindset to an architect mindset can be used to improve the repeatability and effectiveness of your workflows and take you into the stratosphere of expert level Alteryx!

Thanks, Joshua and Chris for pointing out the importance of using patterns in workflows. And indeed it is more than moving parts of the code to a macro. You have to start thinking in (micro or macro) solution patterns and when you encounter them move them into their own component be it a container, a macro, or another way to encapsulate them for re-use later.

It reminds me of class design in the old days of coding. And you can build a domain-specific library of visual parts for your own be it a department, a company, or an enterprise. Increasing the value Alteryx brings even more.

This is worth its weight in gold.
