Learn to Repair, Replace and Reshape Real-Life Data - Get to the Insights Faster!

What You'll Learn in this Course

Alteryx Designer is AMAZING at connecting to a huge variety of data sources and then bringing that data into a visual repeatable workflow for us to explore, profile and build out powerful analytic processes.

We're going to look at many of the popular techniques that we’ll use to analyze our incoming data sources and then identify and extract the data elements that we need for our analysis.

We'll start with a refresher of our old friend, the Preparation tool palette and how it can often be the fastest route to parsing out messy data.

Next, we'll deep-dive into the main tools from the Parse palette itself: covering Text to Columns, and how to parse XML and JSON data.

Finally - to round off this bootcamp, we’ll take you step-by-step through Regular Expressions, or Regex as it’s often known. Regular Expressions are like “superhero-mode” when you need to parse, match or replace complex patterns in your text data.

What you’ll learn in this part of the course is not only the fundamentals of Regex that you’ll be able to take to ANY coding environment in the future, but also how Alteryx Designer makes the process of working with regular expressions so easy - whether you’re looking to parse, tokenise or match your data!

By the end of the course, you'll be confident to work with just about any messy data source you'll come across - knowing that you have the tools and techniques to enrich your analytics with all those new nuggets of insight!

Everything you need to continue your journey to Alteryx mastery is contained in these short, 'snackable' lessons that are available for you on-demand, at your pace, with all the files and details you need to follow along in the comfort of your personal 'genius zone'! 

No pressure, rewatch as often as you'd like, and dip into the sections that drive YOUR curiosity!

You're only a workflow away...

Hi everyone, this is Nick - welcome to Alteryx Designer: Data Parsing Bootcamp!

I create upskilling products for people who are ready to take their first steps with data and analytics!

I give them the tools to have more confidence when they solve real-world business challenges and help them grow in their career and win their day back through self-service analytics!

I've got 6 years of experience working directly at Alteryx: including Customer Success, and Product Management and you'd always find me on the keynote stage when new features needed a demo!

When I'm not crafting new courses for or spending time answering questions in the Alteryx Community, you'll find me cheering on my local ice hockey team (Guildford Flames) or chasing my whippet (Fingal) through the hills of South London!

If you're dying to know more, here are 3 things you don't know about me...

1. I have a Ph.D. in Computer-Aided Drug Design and absolutely love to geek out with data science whenever possible!

2. I volunteer with DataKindUK to help drive social change through better use of data.

3. I have a large (and growing) collection of unusual electronic musical instruments. Honestly, I blame the pandemic...

I can't wait to see you join this course and start making transformational breakthroughs with Alteryx and self-service analytics!
