InfluxDB 2.0 Documentation is Now Open Source

InfluxData community! In January, we released InfluxDB 2.0 alpha with draft documentation. With each incremental alpha release, we’ve iteratively updated the docs. Most recently, we published content for InfluxDB Cloud 2.0. Since the initial 2.0 alpha release, the 2.0 documentation source code has been kept in a private GitHub repository.


Connecting The Things Network to InfluxDB

There are many ways to connect your sensors to the network in the IoT. For short-range connections, there is Bluetooth LE, or Zigbee, or 802.15.4, or ZWave. For longer distances (though still fairly short) there’s always WiFi. But when you need longer distances, sometimes very long distances, there’s LoRaWAN. It’s a sub-gigahertz set of frequencies that are available for small bits of data.

Paul Dix [InfluxData] | Where Flux and InfluxDB Are Headed | InfluxDays SF 2019

Paul will talk about the long-term vision for Flux the language as well as InfluxDB 2.0, Telegraf 2.0 and beyond. He’ll talk about why we’ve decided to create a language, how that plays into polyglot persistence & purpose-built time series databases, and how it enables more complex analytics and processing workloads to drive insights from data not just in InfluxDB, but everywhere.

Russ Savage[InfluxData] | How to Build a Monitoring Application in 30 Minutes | InfluxDays SF 2019

This talk will show how to use Tasks, Flux, dashboards and monitoring and alerting in InfluxDB 2.0 to create an external service or website monitor. It’ll tie all the work we’ve been doing for the last two years together in a simple example for everyone to use as a template for their own custom monitoring applications built on top of the InfluxDB 2.0 platform.

IoT Prototyping with InfluxDB Cloud 2.0 (Part 2): Queries, Tasks and Dashboards

Previously, I put together an IoT device and started streaming data to my InfluxDB Cloud account. It has been happily streaming data to my account since. Next, I want to create a dashboard that shows changes in soil moisture levels over time, as well as the current soil moisture reading.
