Weekly Welcome & Getting Started - May 24th Edition

Happy Memorial Day weekend! We’d like to welcome you to our community forum and share some info on getting started. The forum is designed for you to find info organized by topics, meet other time series data and InfluxDB enthusiasts, ask questions, and find help. If you’re new, reply and say hi, letting us know who you are and what you’re building. We’re always looking for opportunities to get to know members of our community.

To get started, we recommend checking out our Community Forum Intro for some tips to navigating the community. If you’re new to time series data, be sure to register for our Tuesday What is Time Series Webinar. It’s free and designed to help you get started with time series data, understand your time series storage options, and give you the basics of InfluxDB.
