We take two things very seriously here at LogicMonitor: Data and Star Wars.  So you can imagine what happened when we unleashed our best and brightest on the The Star Wars API (SWAPI) and offered uncontested bragging rights to whoever created the best Star Wars Dashboard. 

We got some predictably amazing results – proving once and for all that LogicMonitor dashboards aren't only for monitoring mission critical IT.  Anything that reveals data can be pulled into an easy-to-read view.  And the people and systems powering the epic struggle between the Empire and the Resistance are no exception. 

Integration Engineer, Jon Davis successfully blew our minds with a dashboard featuring a live-feed of conversations of the rebel forces from Episode IV and 2D Trench Run Game with a live count of TIE fighters destroyed. Check it - and the runners up -  out below!
