We have seen a range of data published on the impact of various parameters on the spread of covid-19, including population density, average number of people per household, ethnicity, weather data etc. Have you ever wanted to run your own analytics on COVID-19 data, and examine data sets in order to draw a particular conclusion? Or possibly evaluate a theory, that may or not may not be true. Such analytics could potentially shed light on the impacts of various factors, and you can apply them to a variety of problems.
Join us for an online workshop where we’ll explore how to retrieve COVID-19 data from an authentic source and make it securely available through REST APIs with Kubernetes and OpenShift®. The primary applications are developed in the Spring Boot open source Java-based framework, but you add more features and apply analytical services on the data in the form of microservices written in different programming languages.
🎓 What you will learn
– Cloud native application development
– An overview of a data analytics web application, including data source & format, data parser, and REST API endpoints
👩💻 Who should attend
– Developers and anyone interested in cloud native development, data analytics, and OpenShift
– Sbusiso Mkhombe, IBM Developer Advocate, South Africa – https://www.linkedin.com/in/sbusisomkhombe/
