Happy Valentine's Day!

Hi Everyone!



  Here is something a little fun. Did you know you can use R-Code to create a nice little heart for your special somebody? I have taken a post from R-Bloggers from a couple of years ago and quickly put it into Alteyrx! You can download my workflow from the public Alteryx Gallery.

Once you know a little bit about the code, you can manipulate it to different colors, sizes, or maybe make some extra shapes! I have put my wife's name (Hi Rebecca!) as a starter, but go on and try it with your own sweetie's name.


Hope everyone has a great week!

I realize this is an Alteryx website, and we do a ton of stuff with Alteryx at Spire...I hope I haven't broken the rules too badly...but, this is just too cool not to share.
