AIR: Graphs - A Drunkard's Walk

See the AIR website for more information.

PageRank was a billion-dollar idea that basically boils down to: the web is a graph and there's data in them thar edges. Graphs are ubiquitous, and with the right perspective on them, simple ideas can lead to surprisingly powerful results. In this talk, we'll introduce you to working with graphs via Neo4J / Neography, and use them to stumble our way around the RubyGems ecosystem.
