Come join us for a great evening of talks from the community and companies that create, test and deploy InfluxDB in production.

The evening will have something interesting for both beginners and advanced users of InfluxDB.

For those coming straight from work, pizza and drinks will be provided. Video recordings of the talks will posted shortly after the event for those who cannot join us and we'll take a stab at broadcasting live through Periscope.
