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.
