Time-Series for Developers: what the heck is time-series?

What makes time-series data different from other data? How can you use it in your projects and systems?

Join Avthar Sewrathan, Timescale Developer Advocate and time-series expert, as he breaks down what you need to know about time-series data and how to get started.

We’ll focus on code and step-by-step demos, not theory, so you leave with practical skills and ways to apply time-series concepts to your everyday work.

During the session, you’ll:

  • Get a concrete definition of time-series data
  • See examples of time-series data in real scenarios (such as eCommerce deliveries and movie production)
  • Learn 3 queries that you can use immediately
  • Use time-series data to analyze a real transportation dataset and answer questions like “Which airport is a better choice?” and “How can taxi companies reduce their carbon footprint?”

We’ll have experts on hand to answer your questions. Sign up even if you can’t attend. Shortly after the session, we’ll send the recording, resources, and demos to all registrants, so you can kickstart your time-series journey.
