Create your own graph search like Facebook with Neo4j and Cypher w/ Max De Marzi

It doesn't matter if you are working on Neo4j in Ruby, Java, Python, Clojure or Javascript. Chances are you'll want to make use of the Neo4j Query language "Cypher".

We'll go through the language, from simple queries to complex, learn a few tricks, see what's new in version 1.9 and see what kind of crazy queries we can make.

We will also hear from some of the Baltimore/Washington based Neo4j projects. Learn what they are up to, and where you can get your feet wet. Have a project in mind and need help turning it into reality, don't be afraid to ask for help here.

    clearly very knowledgeable about not just the concepts of Neo4j, but also how to put them to use - Max gave a great presentation.

    Would love to see this but hard to get to McLean. Another presentation for folks in metro DC would be awesome Max

      Limited time offer to see Max in DC (he's out of Chicago), although I'm sure he'll show up again in the future. :) If you have any venue contacts for a DC meetup, feel free to send them my way--I'm going to try one in Bethesda near the metro at some point, but it seats ~40 so it's kind of tight.

      Is this app supposed to be live right now? I granted it FB perms, but it doesn't seem to have processed any of my friend data.

      @Arjumand check again. I just ran it, saw 0 friends, and then checked back after 15 minutes and saw the friend count slowly increase after each refresh
