in order to play you just have to pick a challenge, build a workflow and post a reply in the specific challenge thread with your workflow attached. As for being accepted or rejected, I not sure what the criteria is. It's think its more of a learning exercise as opposed to an actual competition. Your best effort is what counts.
The first page of this thread contains the "leader board" as it stands. It currently displays the top "ten" users in terms of number of challenges completed. "Ten" is in brackets because it's a generous ranking including duplicates. Just below this is list of all the challenges available along with their difficulty. Since you're just starting you may want start with the basic ones and progress to the harder challenges later
Thought I'd share with you and the rest of the Alteryx community this little self-tracking flow I've written to help keep track of which challenges you've completed.
It utilizes the download tool to scrape the Weekly Challenge table you keep so kindly updated for us all, applies some cleaning and parsing, joins onto a data source containing a list of completed challenge numbers and then produces a summary report of challenges that you have and haven't completed. It even provides a clickable URL link to each of the challenges that can be browsed within Alteryx Designer.
It will hopefully be of some use to people, but if not it has been an interesting project over the last 24 hours to get to grips with the download tool.
PS Thanks for all the interesting challenges!
Hi @SeanAdams, no problem - always happy to share and learn :)
A question I'm hoping either yourself or perhaps @JoeM could answer; do we get credited for completing old challenges? I've only had Alteryx for the last month but I'd love to complete the previous challenges, be credited for them and earn those badges!
