The Visualisation Special

This month we've got a visualisation special featuring Neo Technology's Alistair Jones who worked on the Neo4j Browser and Joe Parry, the founder of Cambridge Intelligence who make the Keylines visualisation toolkit.

PLEASE make sure you 
register on the Skillsmatter site to make access to the venue faster and smoother for everyone!

Seeing patterns in your data
Alistair Jones, Software Engineer at Neo Technology

Alistair will give an overview of the techniques and technologies for visualising graph data, and explain where these work well for different types of problem.

Graph databases help you to express the connections in your data. Simply by visualising those connections, you have a simple analysis tool, and a compelling user interface.

Seeing Graphs
Joe Parry, Founder & CEO at Cambridge Intelligence

This talk is about graphs - social graphs, communication graphs, even criminal graphs.  

Graphs are everywhere and are important predictors of behaviour.  Although storing and analysing graphs in a scalable way is essential, for example using a system like Neo4j, to truly understand a graph we have to see it. 

'Seeing' the graph sounds easy but in practice is very hard. Most real world graphs are too large to see at once, making techniques like filtering and aggregation essential. Also, graph data is often ‘dirty’, filled with artifacts that can disrupt the visualisation process and limit our understanding. 

Using live demos and real world examples throughout, this talk will explain how a variety of visualisation and analysis techniques can help us overcome these common graph data problems. 

After the talks we'll make our way to The Slaughtered Lamb for some graph chat over a beer.

    I found the intro to graphs on Tuesday really interesting and wished I could come to the visualization special but unfortunately had some meetings that ran late at the office and didn't make it. Are you going to have another round sometime soon of this talk? or is there any info that would be available?

    Hi Bashar,

    That's fine, just come along anyway. Lots of people sign up in advance and then can't make it on the day.

    We won't turn you away.

    Apologies for the confusion on the skillsmatter site - I will find out what's going on on their side.

    See you tomorrow!

      No issues at all. Great, thanks!

    While it does say we should register at Skillsmatter, I think many people will just RSVP yes here and show up. Could it be changed to show it's full on Meetup? Just to avoid confusion and disappointments
