    ABSTRACT: Let Me Graph That For You
    Graphs are one of the best abstractions we have for modeling connectedness. Graph databases, in turn, are one of the best tools at our disposal for modeling, storing and querying complex, densely-connected data. Today, graphs and graph databases are helping solve some of the world's most challenging data problems, in domains as diverse as search, social networking, recommendations, datacenter management, logistics, entitlements and authorization, route finding, network monitoring, and fraud analysis.

    In this session we'll take a peek inside the graphista's toolbox. We'll look at some common graph data structures, and the graph database queries that unleash the insights buried inside them. We'll survey some of the tools and techniques you can use to graph your world, experiment with graph data, and apply it in your own applications. And we'll draw lots of circles and lines. We might even colour some of them in.

    SPEAKER: Ian Robinson, Co-author of O'Reilly's "Graph Databases" and Engineer at Neo Technology

    Ian Robinson is an Engineer for Neo Technology, the company behind Neo4j, the world's leading open source graph database. He is a co-author of 'REST in Practice' (O'Reilly) and a contributor to the forthcoming books 'REST: From Research to Practice' (Springer) and 'Service Design Patterns' (Addison-Wesley). He presents at conferences worldwide on the big Web graph of REST, and the awesome graph capabilities of Neo4j.

    Due to unforeseen circumstances, Hack Reactor won't be able to host us this Friday.

    I know it is short notice, but does anyone downtown have or know of a space which we could use? Thanks,
