flux training

Everyone at InfluxData is super-excited to invite our community to learn Flux as part of InfluxDays North America 2020 Virtual Experience. Our upcoming Flux Training (October 27-28) will be using an IoT-sensor-enabled pizza oven and corresponding time-stamped data as an example. You will learn Flux while discussing how the temperature and humidity levels of a pizza oven can impact the cooking of the pizza crust and the melting of the mozzarella. Get ready to become more familiar with InfluxDB and Flux!

Why should I join?

Are you considering registering and are concerned you don’t know InfluxDB or Flux well enough? Don’t worry! We’ve got you covered. Many previous attendees weren’t familiar with Flux prior to the course either — this is why you should join. Throughout both days (October 27 – 28) there will be lectures, demos and breaks for hands-on practice. As this training will occur before the keynotes and sessions, you will gain more from the conference. And if that isn’t reason enough, don’t forget — the sessions will be about making pizza and collecting sensor data from a pizza oven! ????

What is Flux?

Flux is a data scripting and query language that is ideal for ETL, monitoring and alerting — and developed by the creators of InfluxDB, the open source time series database.

Flux is empowering for developers because it:

  • Has a CLI and a web-based UI for point-and-click scripting
  • Combines the power of InfluxQL and the functionality of TICKscripts to create a more powerful single unified syntax (which was primarily inspired by 2018’s most popular scripting language: JavaScript)
  • Is meant to be usable, readable, flexible, composable, testable, contributable and shareable

Now that you’re excited to learn Fluxlang, why should you attend our upcoming Flux Training on October 27-28, 2020?

Who are the trainers?

Our fantastic trainers have facilitated this training multiple times. After every session, they come back together to revise the training based on real student feedback as well incorporating Fluxlang updates from InfluxData.

Emanuele is a professor at Politecnico di Milano, which is the largest technical university in Italy. Together with Marco, they founded Quantia Consulting to enable clients to become data-driven through better data engineering, analysis and visualization. They use their industry expertise to create training programs. Riccardo is a Professor at the University of Tartu, the national university of Estonia.

Together, the three trainers provide a unique combination of industry knowledge and instructional design expertise to develop and organize the training.

What to expect — a former student’s perspective

Darin Fisher is an Influxer who is also an active member of the InfluxDB community. He has already contributed to the InfluxDB Community by creating the Endpoint Security State InfluxDB Template.

Darin will be a speaker at InfluxDays North America 2020 Virtual Experience. He will be presenting on “Security Monitoring is in the Time Series Domain”.

“Earlier this year I was able to attend the InfluxDays London training sessions. Well worth it! The instructors present the concepts and tasks very clearly. They covered everything from the architecture basics through building the monitoring service.  The entire event ran very well.

Since then, I have been able to produce a few templates and following this training at the InfluxDays event I will be discussing how and why we are utilizing the InfluxDB tools for security analysis and monitoring. Please join us!”

If you’re concerned about this training being virtual — don’t worry! We’ve got you covered. There will be a great student-to-teacher ratio throughout the course, plus InfluxDB experts from InfluxData there to answer questions. Thanks to Zoom and Slack, we will be in constant contact with everyone. We already have an active Slack workspace. Check it out now before the training. There will be virtual office hours after Day Two where you can ask the instructors all of your questions — just like school!

If you’re interested in learning more about pizza making and Flux, register for our virtual hands-on Flux Training which is being held on October 27-28, 2020.
