Beginner Flux Tutorial Course

Course Description
Flux is a data language used in the InfluxDB time series platform. This course provides a hands-on introduction to the Flux scripting and query language. To start you will learn about some of the design principles around Flux, the Flux data model, and the general structure of a Flux query. Next you will put that conceptual knowledge into practice by ingesting some data formatted in line protocol and then query that data with Flux. In the last section of the course you will cover how to modify the shape of the data and also how to do some routine data processing tasks using Flux by using some of the built-in functions and packages provided by Flux for working with time series data.
What you'll learn
  • Concepts around data ingestion
  • How to write basic Flux queries
  • How to use Flux for data analysis
  • How to shape and process data with Flux
  • How to visualize Flux queries in InfluxDB
  • Basic programming experience in an object-oriented or functional language
  • Knowledge of SQL
