Take your first steps with the best code-friendly language for reproduceable, open-source data analytics! 

What You'll Learn in this Course

We love Alteryx Designer for its accessibility and depth of functionality when it comes to powerful analytics processing workflows that can be built without writing a single line of code!

However - when you combine no-code workflows with code-friendly integration to the R programming language? The result is GAME-CHANGING analytics! All the flexibility of open-source combined with the ease-of-use of an Alteryx workflow!

In this course, we'll start from the absolute basics: helping you make the right choices as you start your code-friendly analytics journey and explaining the different layers of integration between Alteryx and R!

We'll walk through the process of installing the Alteryx Predictive tools and get started with how to move data from Alteryx into R... and back again!

Next, we'll talk through some essential R syntax (including how to get hands-on with data frames and working with data inside R) so that you're confident to bring the R language into play for your analytics challenges.

We'll cover the R ecosystem: both the HUNDREDS of R packages that are bundled with the Predictive installer, but also the THOUSANDS of open-source packages that can be downloaded and used in your local R environment! We'll give you two awesome options to explore this amazing ecosystem as you level up!

Then, we'll talk dataviz as you build out Alteryx workflows that incorporate some of the most popular R graphics packages, including ggplot2 - and bring these data visualizations back into Alteryx Designer as part of your repeatable workflows!

By the end of the course, you'll have confidence to bring the R programming language into your analytic workflows and make sure that the worlds of 'code free' and 'code friendly' get you to your breakthrough moments faster than ever before!

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...

from code-friendly analytics with Alteryx and R!

Hi everyone, this is Nick - welcome to

Alteryx Designer: Getting Code-Friendly with R!

A little about me: 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!
