Real Time Dashboard with Kafka+Spring-boot+Angular+Azure


Hi… This is my first article related to . From this I’m going to show you how to build real time dashboard for sensor data monitoring with above technologies and deploy to azure. This project is one of the requirement of my last year subject of . From this article onward, I will explain the every azure resources that I have used and the application development. The separate article links are listed at the end of this article.

First of all…Let’s see the demo..

Here you have to login with your azure user name and password. The concepts of Azure active directory.

  • Azure CDN
  • Azure FrontDoor
  • App services
  • Azure Function
  • Azure Database for MySQL server
