When I was starting to learn Alteryx, we completed this challenge on the Phoenix User Group meeting with @michaelperillo  and @Treyson 

 

I had plenty of fun with this one.

This was a great challenge! Very fun and full of assumptions that needed to be made.

 

Spoiler
I had a bit of difficulty reconciling my answer with the provided solution until I realized that the provided solution allowed for turns greater than 180 degrees, which my solution did not allow.

I assumed that the camera would always take the shortest path and would not stop - i.e. continuous motion.

Back when I first saw this challenge back in November I could not get my head around it at all. Thankfully I felt much more up to the challenge today! 

 

Assumptions:

Spoiler
Camera can turn clockwise and anti-clockwise. 
Camera can't go past 360. 
It doesn't actually pause on a letter but rather is continuously moving...
Punctuation is included (but no "start/end transmission")
