Many applications have to deal with managing and displaying real-time data, and there are a number of things to consider when streaming data, including options for ingesting and storing data, methods to transport data over the network, how to capture data on the client side, and ways to refresh the UI as data flows. However, there are many open source or free tools that make managing and displaying real-time data much easier to accomplish.
Jeremy Wilken demonstrates how to use Angular and D3 together as the web application layer that will consume a real-time stream of data and display a meaningful visualization. Along the way, Jeremy shares some challenges and considerations when building your own real-time visualizations. You’ll leave with a working streaming client that visualizes data.
