Build an IoT App With InfluxDB


Think About Your Audience Before Choosing a Webinar Title

Sponsored by InfluxData


Building your first IoT app, or seeking a more efficient way to build your next one? Don’t miss this free two-hour IoT app workshop.

The workshop showcases a fully functional sample application called IoT Center built on InfluxDB. With functions such as new IoT device registration, IoT device emulation through an embedded virtual device and device data visualization, IoT Center packs a punch. This demo application, based on Node.js and React, uses Kafka to write measurements and requires no DB installation with InfluxDB Cloud.

IoT Center demonstrates the InfluxDB platform’s ability 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 and air quality, as well as provides GPS coordinates from a set of IoT devices (sensors). With this data stored in InfluxDB, the application can query IoT Center for display as well as write data back into the database. Figuring out data ingestion, collection, storage and visualization is half the battle when building an IoT app; these are all challenges solved by the solution presented in this workshop.

  • Learn how to install the open source code (IoT Center) to learn how to query and write to InfluxDB using the InfluxDB JavaScript client
  • Gain familiarity with Flux language, which is designed for querying, analyzing and acting on time-series data
  • Collect and visualize performance data from the Node.js application

Stream time-series data to your application using RabbitMQ or Kafka queues and InfluxDB

Space is limited, so register soon to take advantage of this free two-hour IoT workshop.

What You’ll Learn in This Webinar

You’ve probably written a hundred abstracts in your day, but have you come up with a template that really seems to resonate? Go back through your past webinar inventory and see what events produced the most registrants. Sure – this will vary by topic but what got their attention initially was the description you wrote.

Paint a mental image of the benefits of attending your webinar. Often times this can be summarized in the title of your event. Your prospects may not even make it to the body of the message, so get your point across immediately.  Capture their attention, pique their interest, and push them towards the desired action (i.e. signing up for your event). You have to make them focus and you have to do it fast. Using an active voice and bullet points is great way to do this.

Always add key takeaways. Something like this....In this session, you’ll learn about:

  • You know you’ve cringed at misspellings and improper grammar before, so don’t get caught making the same mistake.
  • Get a second or even third set of eyes to review your work.
  • It reflects on your professionalism even if it has nothing to do with your event.
