Lets hack together*


  • You answer the questions.
  • We have a pre-meetup skype/phone planning discussion (10-15 min) at least 2 days before meetup. For this we will need contact info.
  • You bring your own laptop to the meetup.
  • We spend 3 hours together. With Beer snacks and hacking with Neo4j with _____ language/framework.
  • Profit.

Crash Course

It seems that we have some new people in the group. We can look into a 20-30 min crash course in Neo4j for people new to the DB. we have secured an extra meeting room so people who want to start hacking can just begin.


The idea is that when we start hacking we spend close to zero time setting up infrastructure. If you run into any issues we (people who have gone through the exercise) will be glad to help you, but let's do it before the meetup. Just drop us a message on the comments section of the meetup.


Some of you have answered the survey and the languages that come on top are Java (3) and Python (3) (with one mention of .NET and Ruby). So if you are not already planning on doing some thing you can join some of us working on our Java/Python apps.

The themes that have been mentioned so far

Create an application which imports a datasource and does some thing cool with it.

Create an application which creates brand new data.

    As a newbie I learnt a lot and met some great people. I'll definitely come to the next one. :-)

    yes absolutely, newbies and experienced Neo4j users are all welcome. In this case we can have a one-on-one intro to Neo4j.

    Of course you are welcome to start playing with it already. You can try cypher queries live in browser for example

    What languages/framework do you like to work with? What problem do you like to solve? Are you into visualizations/ front ends?

    I never used Neo4j, but Im interested on exploring it. You think the meetup could be interested for a newbie?

    Coolio! Btw, how about finding a Non Profit that has some interesting dataset and that the Neo4j community could help by hacking and developing their data backend? I am thinking of medical records, educational content etc etc. WDYT? This would also lead up to a hacking day at in November!

      Got up and running. We should try to point it to the community dataset.

    Medical records and educational content sounds good! i had an idea regarding swedish aid compared to international aid, but there seems to be alot already done in the subject. ( and )...

    Cool, will ask Michael Hunger for the rfid dataset they are collecting at JRuby Conf EU in Berlin today. Also, we can try the neo4j based cms Structr as a Frontend to the Community Graph data.

    The RFID beacon dataset seems interesting to dig into!

  • Neo4J S.

    Let's keep the conversation going here, but details for an iteration0 can be found here

    I can explain and we can hack on

    - the Neo4j Community Graph
    - improvements and recommendations
    - RFID beacon dataset visualization and analytics

    And of course Johans dataset, plus that Jacob has some nice ideas.

    Guys there is a possibility we can do this earlier in August since Peter is here on Aug 22. Should we do an iteration0 for this then?
