Interactive Data Dashboards with Genie: Design to Deployment
07-25, 13:30–16:30 (US/Eastern), 32-123

Learn how to create production ready data applications and interactive data exploration dashboards in Julia, using Genie.


In this comprehensive hands-on session, we'll build a fully functional, production-grade interactive data application using Genie. The key components of the application will include:

  • An exploratory data analysis display of a dataset.
  • A setup for configuring and training a machine learning model on the data.
  • A REST API to serve the model.

We'll cover the entire process: from setting up a new app, designing and building the UI, writing the Julia backend for data processing, and adding interactivity. Once ready, we'll deploy the application on AWS using modern DevOps techniques.

If time allows it, we'll add more valuable features, such as restricting access with user authentication, improving performance with caching, and adding unit and integration testing.
