This article contains a document that I am building to hold a series of Alteryx techniques that are useful for advanced problem solving. The techniques span a wide range of topics that originate from the weekly challenges published on the Alteryx community site. Eventually, this document will be better organized and will grow into a more thorough reference guide.
When data comes flying at you at nearly the speed of light, you have to have fast processing capabilities for using the data to make effective decisions and predictions. In this article, I present some techniques I use to process large data sets in Alteryx and Tableau to be able to see the truth of what lies within the data.
I can call it many things, but when the right technologies are coupled with seemingly insurmountable challenges, greatness can happen. Over the past couple of months I have been able to achieve some remarkable insights by using Alteryx and Tableau on some really fun project work.
Yesterday, I participated in my first Hackathon. I learned a lot about the event and gleaned some interesting insights into the benefit of participating in this type of activity. I think this article is worth reading if you have any interest in emerging technologies.
Fear can make you collapse, or fear can be a great motivator. Placing yourself into a position where you feel vulnerable can help you find out whether you can fight through adversity and compete, or whether you will succumb to the pressure of the moment. Today was a day filled with fear and I had to reach deep inside to do a job that I thought couldn’t be done.
Three Alteryx Aces spent some time together talking about their Inspire 2017 conference experiences. This article has a link to that dicussion.
I constructed a USA county shapefile by blending two files together to create a more useful item for Tableau and Alteryx. You can download the source files and the final product, as well as a Tableau 10.4 file that holds the information.
