From here, you'll want to learn about two important features of Adafruit IO before proceeding further - Feeds and Dashboards
Feeds are the core of Adafruit IO. They hold both the data you uploaded and meta-data about the data your sensors push to Adafruit IO. For example, the date and time when it was uploaded. Or, the GPS coordinates where the data came from.
Want to share your data feed with the world, a group of people, or just a friend? Adafruit IO has integrated feed sharing with fine-tuned privacy controls to allow (and restrict) access to your data.
Dashboards are a feature integrated into Adafruit IO which allow you to chart, graph, gauge, log, and visualize your data. You can view your dashboards from anywhere in the world.
