Hands on build your first Neo4j app for Java developers

  • May 8, 2014 · 6:30 PM
  • Neo Technology

Following on from the Hands On Intro to Cypher session we're going to go a step further and build a Neo4j graph backed web application.

We'll be using Java and working with the meta data of an images data set recently released by the British Library. You'll want to clone this repository before the session:

git clone [masked]:mneedham/neo4j-bl.git

You will need to bring your laptop and preferably have Neo4j installed as well as a Java IDE - I'd recommended the community edition of IntelliJ. If you need help getting it up and running we'll do that before the session starts. 

If you have any suggestions of a public data set that we could use please leave your suggestions in the comments otherwise I'll pick one that sounds like fun to work with.

Pre Requisites

You'll get the most from the session if you've previously attended the Hands on Intro to Cypher session or have played around with Cypher and will be comfortable diving straight in.

We'll order pizza (or similar) to keep us going!

6.00 - 6.30: Refreshments,  networking and getting Neo4j installed.
6.30: Session starts

    The Pizza Paradox. Asked to express a preference almost everybody votes for "non-vegetarian". Yet the meatless pizza always runs out first.

    Have just freed up my place ... haven't had time to investigate Cypher so someone else who has will probably benefit more.

      @Andrew - I see you're signed up for the hands on cypher session in a couple of weeks so perhaps June's build an app session would make sense after that -­
