In this course, we take a fictitious company who has a new web application in which they would like to build a real-time dashboard showing usage. The web application follows a typical structure storing data in MySQL and running on Node.js. With data flowing into our database in real-time, we use Highcharts.js to visualize this data and give our users a view of the activity in the application. You can use this concept to build your own dashboards in your applications and use data to deliver insight to your users.
What is Highcharts?
Highcharts helps businesses create interactive charts for visualizing data in a digestable format.
What will I learn in this course?
By the end of this course, you'll have built a fully functional real-time web dashboard that updates in real time, based on Node.js and MySQL.
What prerequisites do I need?
I work as a feedback mechanism for organizations and teams to help them understand what’s going on with their products and processes. I do this by collecting and organizing their data, visually exploring it, enriching it with other data and metrics, then presenting my findings using creative information design techniques. This leads to improved business performance and often sparks a data-driven culture throughout my clients organizations.
