Weekly Welcome & Getting Started - July 12th Edition

Welcome to the InfluxDB Community. I’m excited to have you here. To make jumping in to the deep end a little easier, we’ve put together some info for you to check out.

If you’re just getting started, check out our Community Forum Intro where you’ll find some tips for getting around the forum. If you’re new to time series or InfluxDB, we have a free What is Time Series Webinar which covers getting up-and-running with time series data, an overview of storage options, and the basics of 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.
