 Digital Hub Concepts in Software Design, Part 3

"Welcome back! In the previous installment of this series, we designed and built a flexible database (a "hub") that will store weather data as it pours in from all over the globe. However, the point of our hub-and-spoke design is that the data gets passed around to different scripts and programs that interact with it. It does not just sit in the database. The portable data is the "spoke" that will connect all of our client applications to the hub."
