Importing Data into Neo4j: Strategies, Examples and Live Demos

This month we're going to have an Import Special where Neo Technology's Rik Van Bruggen will take us through the options for importing different types of data into Neo4j.

PLEASE make sure you register on the Skillsmatter site to make access to the venue quicker.

Importing Data Into Neo4j
Rik Van Bruggen, Regional Director at Neo Technology 

The advantage of using a graph database is their ability to represent complex relationships between pieces of data directly. In order to utilise a graph database and create interesting use cases, you first have to import the data of course.

The raw data usually comes from a variety of data sources in different formats, which often doesn’t easily correspond to the desired graph model and has to be adapted.

Rik will cover the various aspects of the data import process for Neo4j and present the existing procedures and tools.

We'll have an extended Q & A session afterwards where Rik and Neo4j's engineers will answer any outstanding questions you have about getting your data into the graph.

After the talks we'll make our way to 
The Slaughtered Lamb to continue the conversation over a beer.

    Will you be doing the import from any social data/communication sources like: email, Facebook, Twitter etc?

    Hi Everyone,

    I run a meetup group for London IT Contractors and I would be interested in providing floating CTO services & tech advisors services through my group members.

    I can meet you in your office or you can visit my office in Euston Area to discuss your tech requirements and I am sure I will be to assist you on the tech side.

      Hi Randeep,

      Do your contractors have particular expertise around Neo4j? If so perhaps you'd be interesting in doing a talk at the meetup some time?

    Hi, I can't attend on the 27th (short notice!) but would be interested in this session, will it be running again?

    August 22, 2014

    • Mark N.

      Hi Russell,

      We don't have any immediate plans to but if there's popular demand then I'm sure we could put the session on again! In the mean time perhaps take a look at some of the materials on the website?­

      Let me know if you have any questions and I can help out.

    I'd love to go. However holiday plans thwart that intention. Maybe next time.
