Weekly Welcome & Getting Started - August 19th Edition

Happy Monday and welcome to our InfluxDB Community. This is our weekly time to welcome new members to the InfluxDB Community, giving you some getting started tips, give you updates on where you can find Influxers in the wild, and share articles, podcasts, and videos you don’t want to miss.

Be sure to jump in and say hi! Introduce yourself in a comment reply to this post and tell us how you’re using InfluxDB. We’ve got some great resources for getting started that you can find in our Community Forum Resources. This week we have our Community Office Hours, a time where you can come and visit with a panel of Influxers in real-time on a video chat (this week we have our resident IoT expert David Simmons) and our Intro to Time Series webinar.

We’ve also got an active Slack workspace, time series meetups all around the world, and Subreddit speficially 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.
