Publication: DZone Title: Flux Windowing and Aggregation Author: Katy Farmer
Abstract: This DZone article by InfluxData Developer Advocate Katy Farmer discusses Flux queries, Flux being the new language in development at InfluxData. She shows how to window and aggregate data in Flux. The tutorial uses a script that routes cryptocurrency exchange information into InfluxDB and aims to know how much the actual trading price differs from expectations. After providing a walkthrough of each of the windowing and aggregation steps, she compares the Flux query written to the same query written in InfluxQL and concludes that using Flux to explore her data allowed her to easily make meaningful comparisons.
