Graph Databases with Neo4J's Pernilla Lindh and Duane Nickull

Neo4J 101: What it is, How to Get Started and Whispr, a Case Study


An incredible opportunity to hear Neo Technology's Pernilla Lindh provide an overview and introduction for Neo4J.   Pernilla is a Community Manager with Neo Technologies, the company behind Neo4J, the world's most popular graph database.  Pernilla self describes herself as "An Hippie-Information Architect who works with graph databases, will save the world through technology and open data." which will resonate well with Vancouver Culture.

The second speaker will be Duane Nickull who will provide a simple overview of how to get started with Neo4J and then provide an overview of Whispr. is a Decision Management and Analysis platform supporting RACI/DACI models that is built on Neo4J and the reasons why Neo4J was chosen will be illustrated.

    Links for Neo4J:


    The way to start it up is:

    CD to /bin/ and type “sh ./neo4j start”
    “sh ./neo4j stop” shuts it down.
    Grab the shell -> sh ./neo4j-shell

    Now enter help to get some commands or try cutting and pasting this in and hitting enter:

    create demo={id : 'duane', title :'someguy', year:'2013'};

    "exit" to quit the shell.

    Thanks for the great evening, I wish I had the chance to talk more with everyone before having to take off. I work with Neo4j on a daily basis in node.js, including some of the geo-spatial features - I'd be happy to help answer any questions about node integration or neo4j's RESTful interface if anyone is curious.

    I've had a high level introduction to Neo4J before. However, I hadn't been introduced to the new global community manager. Nice to have met Pernilla.
