Weekly Welcome & Getting Started - September 13th Edition

Hello InfluxDB Community!

In our weekly welcome, we like to welcome new members to our community, give you updates on where you can find Influxers in the wild, share articles, podcasts, and videos that we liked, and invite you to join us at events. Speaking of events, we are about 3 weeks away from InfluxDays San Francisco and we’d love to see you there. Use promo code MEETUP to save 20% off of registration. 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.

To really get involved with the community, we have an active Slack workspace, time series meetups 1 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.
