Some of the major topics we will cover include exploring the dynamic tools and validation and testing tools to design efficient workflows in Alteryx, discovering how to work with API tools to download and parse web data, including APIs and web scraping. And then, you'll learn how to use scripting tools, including Python and R, to make the most of your own code. By the end of this course, you'll have the skills and knowledge of the Developer Alteryx tools that are needed to create workflows to transform your data for meaningful analysis. Before beginning this course, you should be familiar with the Alteryx Designer user interface, and you should have taken the Alteryx Fundamental Tools Playbook course.
