InfluxData Community Awards Announced at InfluxDays North America 2021
By Caitlin Croft / Nov 05, 2021 / InfluxData, Community, Developer
We’ve just wrapped up InfluxDays North America 2021 as a virtual experience. Throughout the event, we got to hang out with our community and our engineers shared insights into their work and #InfluxDB best practices. InfluxDB users shared their expertise from implementing Telegraf and the InfluxDB platform within their organizations. Attendees also got to hone their skills during the InfluxDB Challenge. One of the best parts of our conference is to highlight some of our amazing community members.
“We couldn’t create the software we build and support all of the users of the software, without the commitment and contributions from the InfluxDB Community. These awards represent the gratitude and appreciation of the entire community, not just InfluxData, to those individuals who have done so much to benefit all of us.”
– Michael Hall, Community Manager, InfluxData
The InfluxData Community awards aim to recognize developers who have gone above and beyond by sharing their knowledge around the world - through blogs, community forums, InfluxDB community Slack, webinars, and other virtual events. The award categories are:
- InfluxDB: Overall contribution to InfluxDB
- Telegraf: By contributing bug fixes, new features, plugins, documentation or tutorials
- Flux: Through helping with Fluxlang design, submitting bug fixes, and creating documentation and tutorials
- Community: Helping developers worldwide by providing support, speaking at events, and other activities
- Founder's Choice: An all-encompassing award whose winner was hand-chosen by Paul Dix
