On July 24, the Twin Cities Alteryx User Group gang rounded up in a cozy conference room provided by D A T A D R I V E to discuss all things Alteryx (and a little Tableau) before heading over to a nearby saloon to wet our whistles! We had a honkin' tonkin' good time! (
What did we discuss at this Twin Cities Alteryx roundup? Well, glad you asked!
First, we heard from Luke Komiskey, founder of D A T A D R I V E, on how he helped a client locate business opportunities with Alteryx Geospatial tools. Thanks to Luke's efforts this client went from plotting pins on a physical map and doing guess work to clicking play on an Alteryx workflow and interacting with a Tableau visual! Some of the tools in his workflow included...
*Reverse Geocoder Tool (requires separate install and uses lat & long to find closest addresses)
Next, we heard from Aidan Bramel (@AidanBramel), one of our newest Alteryx User Group Leaders, about her experience at Nashville Inspire. Her highlight reel included favorite sessions, keynote events, and 2019.2 Alteryx updates, such as...
*Interactive search, filter, & sort in the data preview (results) bar
*Consolidated data source connection
*Not 2019.2, but noteworthy input to output tool and vice versa conversations coming in the future
*creates models for you!
Woofta! We learned a lot! And last (but not least) we had special guest appearance from the one, the only, Mark Frisch ( @MarqueeCrew )! His gems of wisdom included a plug on how to use the Street Geocoder without purchasing TomTom data and a community plug on the Interactive Geospatial Training.
Big thanks to our speakers for delivering such wonderful content, D A T A D R I V E for hosting, and our Twin Cities community!
