As always, as I was facing Java developers, I wanted to run a quick demo starting from scratch. I’ve just recorded again in a quiet place my demo, and here is the result. You’ll see how in less than 10 minutes I consume datasets coming from Java, and express them building an interactive dashboard with Flex components. I also use in my demo the Gauge component which is part of the IBM ILOG Elixir suite (
