Neo4j and Perl (joint meetup w/ DC Perl Mongers)

Mark Jensen will talk about the various perl modules he's written to interface with Neo4j, and potentially other things, TBA.


The Navy League Building Conference Center is what some people call the room.  The building closes at 6 PM, but we’ll hang out there to let everyone in on the Wilson Blvd entrance. Call Wes @[masked] if you get stuck outside. 

Parking is not free in the building ~$8 for the night. Street parking opens up at 6PM, if you can find a spot. Parking is available on Adams Street on the west side of the building.  Left turn around the building from Wilson, or left turn in front of the building from Clarendon.

Courthouse Metro is very easy [if you know the trick!]. At metro, go up the escalator and through a turnstile, and make an immediate right turn to the elevator. Take the elevator to the street, and as you exit the elevator, cross the street in front of you (Clarendon), go left to get on Wayne Street, and walk a short block to Wilson. Turn left around the bank and enter 2300 Wilson Blvd (Navy League Building). If you miss the elevator, you have to walk about 3 blocks twice, once underground and once on the street.

Looking forward to it! Thanks again to Segue Technologies for providing the meeting space, and to Neo Technology for beer and pizza.

      It's okay; I think I talked him into giving a similar talk directly to DC.PM at a future date =)

    All, Looking forward to talking about I'll talk about - how you can use it as either an object mapper or as a query runner (or both)
    - how to take advantage of batching queries (spoiler: you just put batch { } around them)
    - a little about the overall design
    - a little about the testing philosophy and structure
    - DBD::Neo4p, a DBI wrapper for the query interface
    - the occasional hassles of keeping up with a db that is itself in continuous development
    - how cool the Neo4j community is

    and of course I hope to get lots of insight and suggestions for improvement from you all.
