InfluxData firmly believes an awesome experience is fundamental in developing and curating its developer community. After all, the company’s platform is designed for developers, said CMO Mark Herring, and so delivering a great experience is in the company’s DNA. “We want them to have an awesome experience from the first download to the first interaction with the company to the first install, to first getting started, to first production database.”
Part of that great experience includes an open source platform that takes only about five minutes to get up and running. “It comes down to one piece—the whole platform is there—and you can ingest the data, you can visualize you can query the data in literally about five minutes,” Herring said.
In this video—the second in a series of four—Herring talks about the importance of “time to awesome” in every consideration InfluxData makes regarding its platform, its overwhelming acceptance by the developer community and how the company will continue to strive for an even better “time to awesome.”
