Absolutely! Lee, I look forward to meeting you! I will get organising the next meeting soon. I have been looking into the new Python SDK. Are you into Python? Have you tried creating your own python tool?
I have just done the walk through created by Neil and Nick has also done his own here:
All very interesting, especially as there is a competition at the moment. Give it a bash if you are feeling creative.
Its a great walk through to understand what Alteryx needs where to be able to add a tool with all the relevant bits and pieces.
Give it a go and if you complete a tool don't forget to post it into the competition!
