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.
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...)
