Level:  Technical - Introductory

This tutorial covers the core functionality of the Neo4j graph database. With a mixture of theory and hands-on practice sessions, attendees will quickly learn how easy it is to develop a Neo4j-backed application.

Topics covered include:

  • Introduction to Neo4j
  • Overview of Cypher query language
  • Social use cases including recommendations
  • Permissions modeling
  • Other case studies in real world domains
  • Opportunity to consult on current projects, possible implementations and proof of concepts
Attendees won't need any previous experience with Neo4j, NOSQL databases or specific development languages, but will need their own laptop with Neo4j installed.

After years of deploying open source solutions to address international non-profit challenges, Andreas joined Neo Technology to focus his energy on bringing the beauty of graphs to a broader audience. Having completed 6 months of graph boot-camp with the core team in Sweden, he has returned to the United States to engage directly with the community and customers that have had a graph epiphany.

Amanda Laucher is currently working with Neo Technology, the company behind Neo4j. She is a language geek who is often found ranting about functional languages and great type systems. You may know her as @pandamonial on twitter or from previous conference sessions on F#, FP, DSLs, type systems, Agile methodologies, or any number of other topics that make her passionate about software development.
