An Introduction to Cypher for SQL folks

Cypher is a graph query language used in Neo4j. Much like SQL, it's a declarative language used for querying databases.In this talk, Andrés Taylor, a former SQL DBA and Cypher lead at Neo Technology, will compare and contrast the two. What does an join look like in Cypher? What about an left outer join? There are a lot of similarities between the two - Cypher is heavily influenced by SQL. We'll talk about what these common concepts are, and of course, we'll talk about the differences, what Cypher gives you that SQL leaves you wanting. Come along and see how Neo4j and Cypher can make your daily grind much easier and more fun.

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
