I've been using Alteryx for more than a year now, but never really engaged with the community, so Hi.
Thought I'd share some of my reflections on using Alteryx to date. Short version is, I absolutely love it 😍 and it really makes data tasks a lot of fun, almost like a game. I'm a PC gamer and keep thinking Alteryx reminds me of puzzle games like SpaceChem, if anyone knows that? There have been times when it's felt a bit like I'm being paid to play games. Those are good days 😁
The software itself doesn't replace Excel for really simple things, and I am a bit of a Python machine learning coder and haven't yet tried to integrate the two, I think it could get a bit confusing using the Python tool, but I need to experiment a bit more here probably.
I got in a real mess once when trying to build a large scale Alteryx model, it still gives me nightmares. I think I've learned a lot about having multiple users collaborate on workflows, but it would be good if there was some best practice guidance on this.
I've been using Alteryx for a year now and am in the same boat. Absolutely love it and what I can do with it. If I have an idea of what the data should look like in my head I can easily do that in Alteryx.
Side note: Nice to see another PC gamer in the community!
