More Details

We're hosting a free joint workshop with AWS on how to build real-time dashboards and applications using Amazon DynamoDB, Rockset and Grafana. In this workshop, you'll get a live introduction to building real-time dashboards and how to work with CDC streams.

We’ll be analyzing car sales data to determine the most popular cars, price changes and more all in real time. The car sales data will be stored in DynamoDB and streamed to Rockset for live analytics. Here’s what our architecture will look like:

We’ll be using DynamoDB, S3, Rockset, and Grafana to build real-time dashboards:

  • We’ll write a script that’ll send car sales data to DynamoDB.
  • Separately, we’ll store static detailed information about the car companies in S3.
  • In the Rockset Query Editor, we’ll write complex SQL queries that JOIN data from DynamoDB and S3.
  • Finally, we’ll create live dashboards on Grafana that’ll display the results from the queries.

Pre-Reqs for the Workshop:

Anyone is welcome to attend the workshop. Some SQL and AWS knowledge is nice to have, but not required. No previous knowledge of Rockset or Grafana is needed.


Bring your own laptop and make sure your environment supports Python 3.9.6. If you are having trouble installing this version of Python, please reach out to the Rockset Community.
