Weekly Welcome & Getting Started - July 29 Edition

Happy Monday and welcome to the InfluxDB Community! If this is you’re new to our community, we recommend heading over to our Community Forum Intro; there’s some excellent info on getting started in our forum. If you’re new to time series or InfluxDB, we have a free What is Time Series Webinar next Wednesday which covers getting up-and-running with time series data, an overview of storage options, and the basics of InfluxDB. You can register for it now, and we’ll send you a reminder.

We have a great community, and we enjoy connecting with members using InfluxDB. We have a Slack workspace where you can chat with Influxers and other members. There are channels for everything time series and InfluxDB related. We also have time series meetups taking place all over the world. If you don’t see one near you, let our community manager Thom know and he’ll work to get one going. We’re also on Reddit; if you’re a Redditor, join our sub.

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.
