Challenge #30: Alteryx '16 Grand Prix (Race 1, L2)

I hope you all had fun with last week’s challenge, completing lap one form the Inspire 2016 Grand Prix event (challenge #29).   The solution is posted HERE.

 

Now that you have your data prepped it is time for Race 1 lap 2, you need to answer some questions so you will have content for your annual "Draft Recap" newsletter.    

 

Objective: Please use Alteryx to answer the following questions –

 

  1. Who has the youngest team and what is the average age?
  2. Which team has the best (lowest) average pitcher rank?
  3. What is the Pearson correlation between 2015 Team Rank and Hitter Rank?
  4. Please build a table containing the count of players on each fantasy team by position, the sum of home runs for the hitters by fantasy team, and sum of wins for the pitchers by fantasy team, ordered by 2015 team rank.

 

*Keep in mind the contestants only had about 10 minutes per lap maximum so time yourself.

Ouch - this would have been a big fat DNF for me, as I took well over 10 minutes.

Solution! Didn't officially time, but should have been around 10 minutes as the cookies in the oven were baking for 12, and I finished before the timer went off. 🙂

About 5 mins for this one, it would have been quicker but the instructions in the workflow were incorrect 😞

I did get an answer, but I missed the 10min cutoff - mainly because I failed to read all of the instructions and wasted a lot of time trying to determine which fields the Pearson correlation was applied to....  😞
