Build an IoT App With InfluxDB

InfluxDB is an open source time series database that empowers developers to build IoT, analytics and monitoring software. It is purpose-built to handle the massive volumes and countless sources of time-stamped data produced by sensors, applications and infrastructure.

This workshop showcases a fully functional sample application called IoT Center that is built on InfluxDB. This application demonstrates the capabilities of the InfluxDB platform to develop a JavaScript-enabled time-series-based application. It collects, stores and displays a set of values that include temperature, humidity, pressure, CO2 concentration, air quality, as well as provide GPS coordinates from a set of IoT devices. With this data stored in InfluxDB, the application can query this data for display as well as write data back into the database.

This hands-on workshop will show students how to install this open source code to learn how to query and write to InfluxDB using the InfluxDB JavaScript client, and gain familiarity with the Flux lang query language which is designed for querying, analyzing, and acting on time series data.

The Crash Course for Continuous Code Improvement

Every business today is a software business. Software is made of code. And code is meant to be improved. Yet developers get stuck reactively monitoring, investigating, and debugging code to fix issues. They lose too much time manually searching through logs, APM, and observability tools. Instead, they could be using that time to innovate. In this workshop, the participants will be introduced to the continuous code improvement platform that can help them see errors in real-time and gives them the tools needed to automate how they respond. Participants will learn how to instrument Rollbar's lightweight SDKs into their applications to capture uncaught exception errors as they happen along with the surrounding context and details. Participants will walk away with complete visibility on every error in their application, coupled with all the important data needed to make resolution painless.

Shipping High Performance React Apps with Datadog and Real User Monitoring

The way you observe your Web App’s performance over time can make or break the experience of your users. Fortunately, you can continually stay informed about the health of every delta in your UX using Real User Monitoring, and immediately identify any issues that are holding your current users back. With it, you can manage optimizing how long it takes for users to load your App on mobile, round trip times for asset fetching, the average latency between user actions and component updates, and more (by adding a small block of code in the right place). In this workshop you’ll learn how to leverage Real User Monitoring in order to track and resolve the issues that prevent your App’s greater adoption, and retention. We’ll discuss how to think about performance from the user perspective, gauge what metrics are important to monitor continuously, and define a good strategy for alleviating the latencies and issues that affect your users most.

Table of contents
  • - Interactive Demo: See and hear latency (Web App performance and user joy scale linearly)
  • - Add Real User Monitoring to Conduit (an open source clone of medium.com built on React)
  • - Identify performance bottlenecks and anomalies in Conduit using Datadog’s RUM Explorer
  • - Resolve Conduit’s issues
  • - Verify the problems have been fixed using the RUM Explorer
  • - Monitoring the user experience with Dashboards: User Sessions, Performance, and custom Dashboards for valuable metrics and BI
  • - Q&A, and additional resources

Regular Expressions in JavaScript

Even if you're a regular expression pro, it's not always easy to know how to apply them in JavaScript. What's the difference between RegExp.prototype.exec and String.prototype.match ? What if I want to replace all punctuation followed by multiple spaces with the same punctuation followed by a single space? This workshop will explore the various methods and leave you with sample code, a cheat sheet, and the confidence to choose the right method for the job.

Table of contents
  • - Regular Expression Literal vs. RegExp object
  • - RegExp methods
  • - a. test (yes, or no?)
  • - b. exec (probably not what you want, let's talk about why)
  • - c. match objects
  • - String methods
  • - a. match, matchAll (so much better than exec ;-) )
  • - b. search (take a number)
  • - c. split (make me an array)
  • - d. replace (with fixed string or function output)
  • - Summary cheat sheets
  • - a. What does each method do?
  • - b. When would I want to use one over another?

  • Node 12+
  • Array methods: map and filter
  • Knowledge of regular expression syntax helpful but not required

Data Visualization for Web Developers

Data Visualization, aka "dataviz", is much more than drawing some pretty charts; it's a process of discovering & communicating insights derived from data. As web developers, we are luckily swimming in data about the apps we build, the users who interact with them, and the development workflows we use to build them. We may be used to looking at certain visualizations of that data - e.g. a simple line graph or bar chart presented by our analytics platform - but many developers don't realize that with very little time & effort, we can build our own visualizations to dig deeper and answer the specific questions that really matter to us and our work.

In this workshop, through hands-on projects we'll learn how to use Observable, a browser-based reactive coding platform, to rapidly build insightful, interactive visualizations in JavaScript. After completing this workshop, you'll have the basic tools & techniques you need to start using dataviz to better understand your code, your projects & your users, and make better data-driven decisions as a developer.

Table of contents
  • - Introduction: What is dataviz?
  • - Answering the right questions
  • - Project 1: What devices are users browsing with?
  • - Features & encoding channels
  • - Project 2: (How quickly & reliably) are integration tests passing?
  • - Interactivity & user inputs
  • - Project 3: How fast are (certain types of) API responses?
  • - Takeaways & next steps

Familiarity with JavaScript will be assumed, but developers of all levels are welcome.

No development setup required! All you need is a browser, as we'll do all our work in Observable (signing up for a free observablehq.com account is optional, but not required).
