Your gateway to tomorrow's data!

What You'll Learn in this Course


APIs are our gateway to connect to wider, more diverse and modern data sources.

They are powering our apps and digital devices from social media through to smart meters.

APIs can be tricky to get your head around, and creating a connection can be a minefield of acronyms. Once your have the data it then becomes a data preparation and parsing nightmare to make sense of it all.


Enter Alteryx! Alteryx Designer allows you to easily connect to API’s, not only that, it gives you the tools you need to extract exactly what you need from that data.


In this course we will take you on a journey of APIs and how to create your first API connection. Not only will we connect via an API, but we will cover some useful tips to extract the data you need! 

At the end of this course you will have learnt the basics of APIs and more importantly created a connection to an API within Alteryx Designer!



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...
