InfluxDays SF Recap and Introducing InfluxDays 2018 NYC!

3 minutes

Two Action-Packed Days!

Wow—what an event! We had a great time with our users at our inaugural InfluxDays 2017 in San Francisco—the industry-based content and the networking made the event worth attending. Paul Dix kicked off the day with his introduction of a new query language, Influx Functional Query Language (IFQL). He was followed by speakers from Honeycomb.io, Grafana, Lander Analytics, and Sidewalk Labs and the event closed out with a talk from Baron Schwartz of VividCortex. In case you missed it, or just want to relive the excitement, here’s a recap of the event.

The next day, we hosted a workshop at our San Francisco headquarters where users had the opportunity to learn more about IFQL and how they can contribute to it. There were also in-depth sessions covering building an IoT monitoring solution, Kapacitor, InfluxDB Enterprise, and Telegraf. We ended the workshop with beer and pizza and an opportunity for users to network amongst themselves and with our engineers. I think we can all agree that we all learned a lot!

New Features

No event is ever complete without the introduction of some new features.

InfluxDB 1.4, besides the release of IFQL, has some other enhancements:

  • Compaction Performance Improvements
  • Client and HTTP Enhancements
  • Message Pack formats for responses

Telegraf 1.4.4 includes some bug fixes such as:

  • Use schema specified in mqtt_consumer input
  • Redact Datadog API key in log output
  • Fix error getting PIDs in Netstat input

Thank You

Thank you to all the users that joined us as well as the great speakers that entertained and educated us.

We also posted some great pictures of the event— you can see that everyone was having a good time and the event was a success. I would also like to thank our sponsors—Grafana, Seeq, and AWS.
