Cypher Strikes Back ( 2nd tutorial on Cypher) - Now Live with Adobe Connect

We are pleased to inform you that we can now include up to 4 participants on Adobe connect for our upcoming lab. This is first time we would be trying such a thing in this meetup group but we are hoping for great results. Please join the meetup group and let us know that you are interested. Adobe connect seats are open for any one outside of Stockholm. For people in the area we will meet in person :)










With Neo4j 1.8M1 release we now have CREATE, SET, DELETE, FOREACH in the query language. Coupled with lots of other goodies (since the last time we saw Cypher) a new lab is warranted. And it seems that other meetup groups are getting ahead of us. So we need to strike back ftw.


Detailed Plan:

We assume that you already know what Neo4j is (if you don't have any idea then this video would be helpful). You are not expected to know Cypher but you are encouraged  to go through Chapter 16 of current Milestone release.

For this meeting you will all be _required_ to bring your laptops. It would be best if you can pre-install the latest Mile Stone version of Neo4j Server on your Laptop. If you drop in early we can help you with setting up Neo4j if necessary (it's very easy any way)

We will have two sessions of 45 minute each. In the first session we will go through quick examples of CRUD with Cypher. In the second half we will focus on things which go beyond CRUD (functions, aggregations etc)

Please post in Pre-Meetup conversation for questions/comments.

Lets learn together, by doing.

    Never tried it myself But I've heard that the quality is much better and u can share views.

    Well a bit more preparation on my side would have certainly helped. So the summary is -A live lab with outside participants is not easy, but possible. Adobe connect is a hard tool to work with. Perhaps there should always be one person controlling it as the host. I dare not use Adobe connect any more. I have some how survived this time with bruises.

    -Examples that cover the content with a dataset is the key. Some thing that follows a trail and also with a running app.

    -The Neo4j tools that we used are not very friendly for a lab/large screen context. The ne4j-shell has control character problems and neo4j-console is not optimized for large fonts.

    -As a presenter (note to self) one must thoroughly use the language being presented. Otherwise answering good questions becomes tricky.

    Overall I think it was a good exercise where people typed. It's easy to just view a presentation or webinar but typing requires work. I hope that as a result more people start using Cypher.

    Just some small technical issues with small font sizes and editors on screen, otherwise a really good crash course in Cypher 1.8.M04.

    Adobe Connect was more of a problem than a helpful tool,

    I think Hatim you did a great job in getting on the keyboard with Cypher. What do the others think?

    WDYT about the Adobe Connect thingy? Was it helpful?

    Well done by Hatim, a continuous example would have perhaps helped people to come along easier.

    Thanks a lot

    sure, so far we have 3 people for the Adobe connect meetup but they are all Cypher/Neo4j gurus, including you. So I am a bit scared :)

    So we are still waiting for community members to join us on Adobe connect.
