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.
The demo demonstrated in the talk that you can go through yourself.
