Visualizing Data In Real Time With SQL Server And Dash

Tomaz Kastrun shows how to use Python Dash to visualize data living in SQL Server in real time:

The need for visualizing the real-time data (or near-real time) has been and still is a very important daily driver for many businesses. Microsoft SQL Server has many capabilities to visualize streaming data and this time, I will tackle this issue using Python. And python Dash package  for building web applications and visualizations. Dash is build on top of the Flask, React and Plotly and give the wide range of capabilities to create a interactive web applications, interfaces and visualizations.

Tomaz’s example hit SQL Server every half-second to grab the latest changes and gives us an example of roll-your-own streaming.

Comparing TensorFlow Versus PyTorch

Anirudh Rao compares PyTorch to TensorFlow: For small-scale server-side deployments both frameworks are easy to wrap in e.g. a Flask web server. For mobile and embedded deployments, TensorFlow works really well. This is more than what can be said of most other deep learning frameworks including PyTorch. Deploying to Android or iOS does require a non-trivial amount of work in TensorFlow. You don’t have to rewrite the entire inference portion of your model in Java or C++. […]
