Dashing off a Dashboard: Livecoding a Kafka App

« Current 2022

How much can we accomplish with Kafka in 40 minutes of coding? Let's find out! In this live-coding session we'll build a real-time sales dashboard from scratch and see how you can:

  • Set up a Kafka Consumer with Python.
  • Easily handle real-time Stream Processing with ksqlDB.
  • Build out a WebSocket server to broadcast live data to your users.
  • Create a basic React app to visualise data in a way anyone can access.

We'll start with an empty directory and by the end, you'll have all the foundational pieces of a dashboard that could serve KPIs to everyone in your organisation, or just form the basis of your next lunchtime hacking session.
