Weekly Welcome and Getting Started - August 30th Edition

Happy Friday, and welcome to the InfluxDB Community. For those of you in the US, have a great Labor Day weekend! This is our weekly welcome designed to help you get started on our community forum, give you updates on where you can find Influxers in the wild, and to share articles, podcasts, and videos that we liked. For being a part of our community, you can join us at InfluxDays San Francisco, October 2-3 and save 20%! Just use promo code COMMUNITY to get your discount. We’ll have Influxers, 3 of our InfluxAces, and amazing community members as well as talks that you won’t want to miss.

If you’re new, say hi to us and let us know how you’re using InfluxDB by just replying to this post. To help you get up and running quickly, we have our Community Forum Resources. This coming Wednesday morning, we’ll host our Intro to Time Series webinar, a great time to learn about all things time series and InfluxDB. It’s live and you can ask questions in real-time.

If you want to get plugged into the community, we have an active Slack workspace, time series meetups all around the world, and Subreddit specifically for all things InfluxDB.

If you have any questions or need help, search or browse the forums. If you don’t find what you’re looking for, just ask. Feel free to take a minute to respond to this thread and introduce yourself as well.
