[New Webinar] Guide to Grafana 101: Getting started with (awesome) visualizations
Get demos, queries, and expert tips to jumpstart your first dashboard, or add a little extra awesome to your existing Grafana setup.
If you’re working with data, odds are you need a way to visualize your data - either for yourself or to share with your team, wider organization, or your end-users. There’s no shortage of tools available, and I’ve used quite a few: Tableau, Looker, PowerBI, and, my latest favorite, Grafana.
So that we’re all on the same page, Grafana is an open-source visualization tool that’s growing in popularity with developers (including me!) for its wide variety of data sources, open source licensing, and support for many useful visualization types.
But, using Grafana isn’t without a learning curve. In my conversations with developers, and in my own experiences, it can take weeks - if not months- to master the art of creating useful visualizations. There are a lot of features that you may not know how, when, or why to use, like filters, charts, gauges, and even world maps.
What if you could shorten that time and get up and running with the visualizations you need straightaway (or add to ones that you’ve already built)?
In my upcoming webinar, Guide to Grafana 101: Getting Started with (awesome) Visualizations, I’ll show you how to use SQL and TimescaleDB to build Grafana charts, gauges, and beyond for any time-series dataset.
I’ll focus on code and step-by-step live demos, using my own and my teammates’ time-series datasets to create various panels (what Grafana calls its charts and visualization types) and an example monitoring dashboard.
Join me on April 22nd at 10am PT/1pm ET/4pm GMT where I’ll demo how to:
- Set up a datasource for Grafana
- Create 5+ different visualizations for data from IoT, infrastructure monitoring, and public datasets
- Combine geo-spatial and time-series data in our dashboards
- Take my demo and customize it for your project, team, or organization
Whether you’ve never used Grafana and are looking for a cheaper alternative to proprietary visualization tools, or are a Grafana pro who’s looking for some other tips & tricks, this session is bound to teach you a thing (or two, or five).
My goal is that you leave the session with the practical skills and inspiration you need to build your own (awesome) Grafana dashboards for your projects.
As always, myself and other Timescale team experts will be available to answer questions throughout the session, and share ample resources and technical documentation.
Signup even if you’re unable to attend live, and I’ll make sure you receive the recording, slides, and resources - and answer any questions you may have along the way.
See you soon!
