Who: James Hughes

What: James has been working on a really interesting project for the Department for International Development (DfID, http://www.dfid.gov.uk/), a UK government agency working on providing transparency around the ways that aid money gets spent on different development projects. He has been working on a web application that is providing a frontend + API access for people to interrogate a very detailed data format that details how Countries, Regions, Organisations, Activites, Budgets are related. During his talk, he will be explaining the history of the project, the reasons for moving from a MySQL backend to Neo4j, the benefits and problems that he faced in his experience along the way.

    Interesting and engaging. It is nice to see someone doing something useful and interesting, and to be passionate about what they have done.
