Hi fireblade909.

I'm sorry if my post was misleading. Allowing only one question per shareholder is the worst case that I have seen at any company's annual shareholder meeting -- as I indicated, I've attended shareholder meetings of several companies. That is not what I "expect" from Alteryx. Most companies are more generous fielding shareholder questions. I mostly brought up limits just in case I'm not allowed to ask all the questions I hope to bring which, yes, will include some great ones thanks to this board. I will consider reaching out to Investor Relations (IR) afterwards if my questions are left unanswered. I agree with you that that's a good idea. But rather than funnel everything through me, it might be even better if the questioner him- or herself reached out to IR. There is always the possibility that I might misunderstand the question (or the intent behind it), so an e-mail directly from the original questioner lessens the possibility of that kind of misunderstanding creeping in. If the questioner in question (did I just write that?) has never contacted an IR department directly before, that would be the perfect excuse to "break the ice". But let's see first what I CAN get answered.

I actually may be able to answer (at least partially) one or two of the questions myself before I go to the meeting, just from having studied the 10-K (I'm still working on that) and other company materials. For example, the 10-K does talk about the sales model addressing the developer community as well as business analysts, although the latter does seem to be the primary target. Where I can, I'll try to develop answers myself, which may lead to related questions that I can bring to the meeting instead. Another thing I learned in the 10-K is the answer to, "Why Broomfield, Colorado?" Alteryx has an R&D center there.

Fool on!
Thanks and best wishes,
