Dashboards are incredibly useful in a variety of industries. They provide incredible visual insight into applications’ functionalities and are a great way to measure metrics, visualize data, get alerted with updates and drill down into important details all in one place. Creating effective dashboards for your API driven applications can get pretty tricky and might require a lot of effort and front-end development knowledge. However, Node-RED’s UI nodes makes it effective and easy for anyone to create informative visualizations and within minutes.
Node-RED is a flow-based programming environment from the JS Foundation. It provides a palette of nodes that allow users to very quickly wire up IoT applications, APIS and web services that can combine streams of both physical and digital events. Its Node.JS runtime is easy to install on both devices and the cloud and provides a framework for extending its capabilities. In this workshop, we will learn the basics of Node-RED's core features, learn how we can use Node-RED to create dashboards, and visualize data.
By the end of this talk you should be able to walk away with:
- Overall Understanding of Node-RED
- Hands on training with creating flows in Node-RED
- Creating dashboards and visualizing data
- Visualizing AI services within Dashboards
