Stream Tweets in real-time with Node-RED & HERE Technologies
On Tuesday, August 25, 2020, I got the opportunity to deliver a webinar with Senior Developer Evangelist Vidhan Bhonsle & MEA Business Developer Manager Mohamed Abdeljalil from HERE Technologies titled ‘Learn how to integrate location element in Node-RED’ which was hosted by Senior Developer Advocate Upkar Lidder from the IBM San Francisco City Team on Crowdcast.
There were a total of 42 attendees including developers and students from across the world.
Mohamed started off with a welcome note and introducing the series and IoT solutions and challenges. Then he started with introducing Node-RED, where Mohamed and I had a conversation about what is Node-RED and what are its components. Then I presented the first part of the Hands-on section, which was about building an interactive map with Node-RED to stream the latest tweets in real-time around any topic.
To build this, you will need an IBM Cloud account, HERE Technologies Developer account, and Twitter Developer account. It was actually a fun project to work on and an easy way to introduce Node-RED capabilities in an innovative way. The flow would look something like this:

Later on, we got to the closing remarks, which marked the end of our webinar series with HERE Technologies. I am pleased that I got the opportunity to be part of and work with amazing people.
The replays of the series are available at IBM Developer Crowdcast.
