This is a great offer to the folks in London. I think that the certification process is important for all users to participate in. Besides the confidence boost that comes with the certification, the journey there teaches the learning skills required to advance and to Alteryx your career. I'd only suggest that you take a group photo of the newly minted certified users at the end of the agenda.
Thanks for the generous gift to those in your community.
Great idea Joe.
We are watching with interest from the Jersey User Group !
We now have several Core Certified analysts from different companies, but many are a bit intimidated - this might be the sort of nudge required.
We are also thinking of setting up a weekly study group to take the cohort through the curriculum in the month before-hand.
We will launch at our User Group meeting on 5th March.
Good luck, and please do share feedback !
