Timelion: Magic, Math, and Everything in the Middle
Timelion is a simple expression-based pluggable time series interface for everything. Whether you're brand new to Timelion, or have been using it since day 0, you'll learn something new in this session. Rashid will go over Timelion's expression syntax including data sources, chaining, and grouping, and then apply those concepts, along with a few neat tricks, to some real data.
He'll also cover multiple manners of munging data and get into the methods Timelion uses to automatically fit abnormal sources, allowing you to compare and combine sparse and incomplete datasets. Finally, we'll take a brief look at plugins and how you can extend Timelion to do so much more.
