We are excited to announce that with partnership with Alteryx, Alteryx has been recognized as the 2018 Gartner Peer Insights Customers’ Choice for Data Science and Machine-Learning Platforms. We take great pride to achieve this distinction as something we refer to as the “court of customer opinion” as customer feedback truly shapes our product strategy and future enhancements.

The test spreadsheet
In my experience, the toughest part of dealing with a REST API is authentication, but in this case Quip makes it incredibly simple. In no time I'd pulled down the above spreadsheet. Here is the download tool workflow:

I was expecting Quip to return something along the lines of a JSON object representing the spreadsheet, but instead they returned HTML - and lots of it! The API documentationsays, "Once you have a token, the easiest way to use [the API] is via the Python Client Library, which makes most tasks a single line of code.
What can I do with the Insight Tool?
With the new Insight tool you can build and combine multiple interactive charts so your stakeholders can investigate and focus on what is important to them. The Insight Tool leverages our new chart capabilities, so you can easily customize your charts, adding a drill down to each so when you drill down into one chart it reflects across all other charts.

Who doesn’t love a good cheat sheet? Nobody, that’s who. Cheat sheets are awesome. They are a great reference for functions you need handy, but don’t have memorized by heart (yet). They can also be a fantastic way for learning and reinforcing components of a programming language.
