I'm excited to present to you Lap 1 of the 2018 US Grand Prix! If you were at Inspire in Anaheim with us in June, you saw our 3 finalists (@BenMoss, @mattagee, @NicoleJohnson) solve this workflow in front of roughly 3000 Alteryx users and fans.
Tackling this workflow won't compare to the experience our finalists had, but it will give you a glimpse into what it takes to compete in the Grand Prix. To make it more life-like, I suggest doing the following.
1) Open up the workflow and give yourself 2 minutes to read the prompt - don't touch the mouse!
2) Time yourself - the drivers had a maximum of 12 minutes to finish.*
3) To take it to the next level, invite your friends and neighbors over, provide them food and drinks, and put on some headphones as you solve.
*At Inspire, the journey did begin by the drivers having to find the data in Alteryx Connect - I've provided the data for you in the workflow.
Off to a running start!
Took about 5 mins, so I spent the rest of the checking that all of my values matched....but there are some discrepancies!
I suspect the answer file came from a slightly different source
Well, let me just say that while this round was FAR less stressful than the last one, it was not nearly as fun... :)
Nice to get a chance to relive this one in a less intense environment haha! But I would still go back and take that on-stage adrenaline rush any day... :)
Cheers! (Now, to go study up again on what on earth went wrong in Round Two, just in case that one is next in the pipeline...)
I love my formulas (and to be honest, I forgot about the datetime tool)! ah well, it saved me one tool in the workflow.
