I am a software developer at UNiDAYS, international speaker & avid learner. Topics that I am particularly interested include community building & all aspects of monitoring. I am currently organising a technology conference which will take place in 2019, having previous experience with meetup organisation. I am easily bribed with coffee & love hearing about other people’s experiences in technology. Opinions are my own and not the views of my employer.
Dashboarding, also known as visualisation, is a difficult thing to do. First, there is a vast choice of tooling and setup. Then, figuring out what information should be displayed, where and why can be confusing.
Together we will journey through a practical tour of dashboarding. Focusing on metrics, we will go through some of the common patterns for services and API’s that can ensure your visualisations and dashboards are useful. Finally, I will demonstrate building a dashboard using these patterns using StatsD, Graphite, and Grafana.
This will be a whirlwind tour from start to finish on how to get started making useful development dashboards.
