Oct 16: Graph Database: Spring Data Neo4j (at AOL)

Title: Graph Database: Spring Data Neo4j by Michael Hunger at AOL

This event is co-hosted by the Graph Database - Balt/Washington Meetup (you can also register there, if our signup list is full).

Talk: Spring Data Neo4j provides straightforward object persistence into the Neo4j graph database. Conceived by Rod Johnson and Neo Technology CEO Emil Eifrem, it is the founding project of the Spring Data effort. The library leverages a tight integration with the Spring Framework and the Spring Data infrastructure. Besides the easy to use object graph mapping it offers the powerful graph manipulation and query capabilities of Neo4j with a convenient API.

This talk introduces the different aspects of Spring Data Neo4j and shows applications in several example domains. During the session we walk through the creation of an engaging sample application that starts with the setup and annotating the domain objects. We see the usage of Neo4jTemplate and the powerful repository abstraction. After deploying the application to a cloud PaaS we execute some interesting query use-cases on the collected data.

Speaker: Michael Hunger is the project lead of the Spring Data Neo4j project and a senior developer with Neo Technology. He is (co-)author of two books about Spring Data (Neo4j) and others. Michael is interested in many areas of software development, from enjoying programming languages, working actively with open source projects and their community, to good development practices. He is a board member of the JetBrains Academy, a frequent speaker at conferences and an editor for InfoQ.

Food: Food and Drinks will be provided by Neo Technology.

    Just in case some of you haven't been to AOL before, you might want to review the last part of the trip. I messed this up a couple of times before realizing the better way. From 28N, don't take the left exit onto Waxpool, because it doesn't let you turn left onto Pacific Blvd. You want to take the second exit, on the right, that says "Toward Pacific Blvd", then make the left onto Pacific and AOL is on the right. See you guys there! Here's a map of the last part of it, for reference: http://mapq.st/SXWKT0­
