SAN FRANCISCO – March 9, 2022InfluxData, creator of the leading time series platform InfluxDB, today announced the launch of InfluxDB University (InfluxDB U), an online education platform for customers and developers working with time series data. InfluxDB University focuses on giving developers the technical skills they need to build applications with InfluxDB through both on-demand and live instructor-led courses taught by InfluxData and industry experts. Courses on InfluxDB University are available today at no cost.

“We think about the developer first in everything we do, ensuring they have the tools and resources needed to build and integrate applications with time series data,” said Brian Mullen, Chief Marketing Officer, InfluxData. “We meet developers where they are on the learning curve. Whether they’re brand new to InfluxDB or an advanced builder of time series applications, every developer can easily find the path and course work that is most relevant and most attuned to their individual journey.”

The launch of InfluxDB University reinforces InfluxData’s commitment to delivering faster Time to Awesome™ to developers building applications with InfluxDB. Delivered through an intuitive learning platform, InfluxDB University courses offer technical resources and teach best practices to reduce the time and effort to build real-time applications. Participants can choose weekly trainings and workshops, led by qualified instructors who answer questions live during sessions.

“InfluxDB University eliminates many of the common barriers to application building with time series data, which reinforces InfluxData’s commitment to developer happiness,” said Dr. Angelo Fausti, Software Engineer, Vera C. Rubin Observatory. “There’s a wealth of knowledge in these courses, and InfluxData is a true partner committed to ensuring we have the skills we need to be successful.”
