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.
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
