Share Paul Dix: Building InfluxDB, an open source time series database company

Event Details

Speaker
Paul Dix, InfluxDB Founder and Y-Combinator alum

Date and Location
March 25, 2014 from 6pm-8pm at the Center for Open Science in the downtown Omni building - half a block from the free Trolley stop at the Downtown Mall.

Abstract
In this talk Paul will introduce InfluxDB, an open source distributed time series, metrics, and analytics database. He'll talk about how he arrived at being an open source developer from a closed source background. He'll share some lessons learned while going through Y Combinator's Winter 13 batch building a product that would ultimately pivot into building InfluxDB.

He'll then dive into why there's even a need for something like InfluxDB, what people were doing before, and look at some use cases and examples of InfluxDB in production. He'll go over the features in InfluxDB that make it easier to work with than "rolling your own" solution for analytics and metrics data storage. He'll cover some of the internals and optimizations that the InfluxDB team has built to make InfluxDB distributed and scalable.

Why You Should Attend
Time-series data is increasing how we organize massive amounts of data, but a first-class time-series database doesn't really exist, as strange as that might seem. Paul Dix's vision of how to build one is promising. InfluxDB is interesting because of the following words: database, time-series, distributed, open-source, SQL-like query language. These are among the most challenging and interesting problems to solve in software engineering and business. This project should be educational and inspirational to current and future engineers and entrepreneurs. This talk will not be a marketing pitch in disguise; this is a talk by and for engineers and entrepreneurs. Paul Dix's visit to Charlottesville will be a rare opportunity to meet and hear from a young technologist working years ahead of the curve.
