Asteroseismology of solar-like oscillators provide unmatched stellar ages in terms of precision, ages that provide important comparison data for tests of the chemo-dynamical evolution of the Milky Way Galaxy. In this talk I will show how the asteroseismic analysis of solar-like oscillators observed by the Kepler/K2 (and soon TESS) missions is performed from an observer’s perspective; I will describe current efforts on applying asteroseismic results from K2 to constrain the properties of the local solar neighbourhood, and on using a sample of stellar clusters observed by Kepler and K2 to constrain the accuracy of the asteroseismic age-scale.
