Lab 1 overview

In this lab, you will develop a simple streaming application to process sample data. You’ll build both ends of the application—the data source and the data sink—and add functionality gradually over the next several labs in this course.
After you build your application and submitted it to Bluemix, you’ll navigate the Streams Console to observe the output.

Prerequisites

You will need the following accounts and software:

  • An IBM Bluemix account with a Streaming Analytics service
  • An IBM Data Science Experience (DSX) account
  • Make your own copy of the Python notebook for this course. In the notebook, follow the instructions under Prerequisites to install the Streams health package and input your service credentials.
