# Introduction to Time-Series - David McKay

Time-Series has been the fastest growing database category, rated, by DBEngines, for over 2 years; yet, less than 15% store their time-series data in a time-series database. Do you?

One could, accurately, say that time-series data is as old as the universe; but it wasn't until the mid-19th century that the first article was published on the concept: A Comparison of the Fluctuations in the Price of Wheat and in the Cotton and Silk Imports into Great Britain by J. H. Poynting (March 1884).

Time-Series data is so natural and common that you actually consume, evaluate, and utilise it everyday; when you're:

- Paying for your morning coffee
- Sighing at the "Delayed" notice on your commute
- Hugging your coffee mug as you process your email inbox

In this talk we will look at the different types of time-series data and how to use that to drive observations, understanding, and automation.

"All data becomes an order of magnitude more interesting on the time dimension" - Lets see why.

David is a Developer Advocate 🥑 for InfluxData, the company behind InfluxDB.

As a serial user group organiser, Cloud Native advocate, and lover of esoteric programming languages, David is always on the hunt to learn and share knowledge with others in fun and exciting ways.
