Welcome back to our second part of Getting started with Quarkus and InfluxDB to ingest sensor data from a Particle device! In this tutorial, we are going to explore the world of time series databases. We’ll show how to set up an InfluxDB Cloud account and how to ingest data through a Quarkus application.

ICYMI, in the first part of this tutorial series, we wrote our first controller using Quarkus. We implemented a POST endpoint to retrieve data from a Particle device through a webhook or, in case you don’t have a Particle device, we used k6 to simulate a stream of random values. …

Deciding which programming language and framework to use for your next backend application is not trivial. There are a lot of variables involved in the process. What is the learning curve of a new framework? What is the end goal of what you are about to develop? A prototype? A full-scale production web server? What is the computing infrastructure that you will be using for the deployment? These are just a few examples, but there could be a lot more to explore before making the final decision.

This tutorial is composed of two articles. In the first one, we are going to explore the Quarkus framework and we will deploy a backend application that ingests and processes data coming from a Particle controller. In the second one, we will see how to store the data received in an Influx database. …
