Getting Started With Dash
00:00 Getting started with Dash in Python. In this video course, you’ll go through the end-to-end process of building a dashboard using Dash. If you follow along with the examples, then you’ll go from a bare-bones dashboard on your local machine to a styled dashboard deployed on Heroku. To build the dashboard, you’ll use a dataset of sales and prices of avocados in the United States between 2015 and 2018.

Next, regardless of which platform you’re using, you’ll need to install the required libraries. You can do that using
pip inside your virtual environment. Here, you can see the command needed to install
