Neo4J Peter Neubauer in Vancouver

The rumours are true! Neo4J co-founder Peter Neubauer will be returning to Vancouver. The abstract of his talk will be send soon.

With the first Milestones of the Neo4j 2.0 series which we expect to be generally available (GA) in the next couple months. This release is significant in that it is the first time since the inception of Neo4j thirteen years ago that we are making a change to the property graph model. Specifically, we will be adding a new construct: labels.

Peter will go through some of the major features, Cypher changes, Transactional REST enpoints and other goodies, before we have some beers!

We are looking for one other speaker. Please use the form located at https://whis.pr/o/13643279992744c72b931ffffe04d1/f/13680315565594c72b931ffffe04d1/fill

    I would like to add my thanks to Duane and Peter for an excellent session. I am just beginning to dive into BigData and NoSQL and this was an excellent into to Neo4j.

    Everybody and @duane, thank you for coming out yesterday despite the holiday! The tablet contact thing did not work out great because o the network, so feel free to contact:

    * Peter - [masked] for cool projects, drivers and blogs etc about your Neo4j project that we can promote to gain some traction for you
    * Ehren Duisberg, [masked] for support/PoC help and licensing etc
    * Duane for speaking at the next meetup, sponsoring and reaching out to other meetups in Vancouver for graph coolness. Also, suggestions on how to make the meetups more interesting to you are very welcome!

    Also, there will be more in-depth Neo4j tutorials coming up in at least Seattle, I think even Vancouver. Will let you know when that comes up.

    I enjoyed getting a demo of cypher and learning about new and ongoing developments with Neo4j. I still need to get my hands dirty, but talks like this make it seem that much more accessible.

      There are tutorials coming up soon, I can let the group know!

      Yes - we can arrange tutorials. Maybe a full day of free training in June or July.

    Good meet up, Peter was very open to any audience questions and they asked a lot. It was very basic intro, but he did go over some cool features 2.0. The organizers were awesome in pulling everything together at the last moment and even got free beer and pizza. Thanks all

    Hi guys, this is a link to a project page I've been talking to some people at the meetup http://v.ht/29 . It's a small project I originally devised "just for fun". It's a "wireless touchscreen" to add tablet functionality to your smartphone. I will appreciate if anybody will vote to support it.

    great talk! was happy to meet some of you and i look forward to future events

    thank you to Peter and the organizers

    Darn - I have a Silicon Valley DITA Users Group presentation tonight so I can't make it. Will there be a recording? Have a great meeting.

      Absolutely! This is a very rare experience to hear from Peter, a co-founder of Neo4J. This is an opportunity that does not happen very often.

      See you there.

      May 19, 2013

  • Duane N.

    URGENT: We still need a projector from someone. Does anyone have a machine they can bring. You will be loved and adored by all.

      Hi there, we will rent a projector tomorrow. Mostly also because I think slides are boring, better to show live stuff :)

      May 19, 2013

    • Duane N.

      OK - we have a projector! Everything is a green light for tomorrow. See you all at 5:45-6:00 and we start at 6

    Everyone, instead of just Duane and me talking, could you guys bring maybe a couple of Blitz-talks about how you are using Neo4j? Would be supercool to discuss some of the usecases and challenges with all. Anyone up for it?

    I can intro the new features, show some of the graph design decisions in a couple of projects and even Duanes Whispr, and then we can maybe have some 3 short presentations on others that are using Neo4j in different settings. Anyone up for it?

      While i'm not a Neo4J user, i'd be up for a presentation on what i believe is required of a graph DB for geospatial apps. I'm thinking of topological (rather than geometrical) queries.

      sounds great! Heard of some other interesting talks too. Makes things so much more interesting!

    Roundhouse is confirmed. We are in Room B. Doors will be open at 5:30 to get set up and the meetup with start at 6:00 PM. We still need a projector. If you have one and can volunteer it please contact me.

      Thank you Duane for walking the extra mile to solve the venue. see you all there!

  • Jim T.

    Best way to do this. One person with money buys the projector then rents it to each event. Once it is paid for with rent then they still own it and offer it freely - or some such thing.
    I am on sunshine coast but could help if called upon

    May 17, 2013

  • Casey

    The person who used to bring a projector to these events has worn out their projector.
    We need to pool resources of tech meetups for a new projector. :)

    May 17, 2013

  • Duane N.

    Looks like we are going to be in the Roundhouse, Room B. I am awaiting final confirmation. Will know later today.

    Does anyone have a projector they can bring?

    May 16, 2013

  • Duane N.

    Hey all! We would like to finalize the room reservation today. I have reached out to Jim Tivy for inquire about the UBC Robson Square space. At the same time I would like to ask for any other suggestions. It looks like we'll be around 40 people and it should be somewhere where we can grab a pint afterwards if conversations continue.

    Are you able to provide us with a room or a contact name? Thank you in advance.

    Hello Peter,

    I am personally very excited about the potential of graph DBs, and Neo4J in particular (the embedded version in particular particular! :-))

    But for my company, I need to get some solid info/data on the more "boring" practicel stuff related to enterprise-readiness: deployment/rollback, versioning, back-up, archiving, upgrading, etc. (Scaling & performance I suspect are already somewhat well-covered, but could not hurt to get more data on those too.)

    Until such facets are clearly explained & supported, I cannot see being able to trust/promote/recommend/convince Neo4J to our engineers more than the traditional DBs they are already comfortable with. Such DBs have their faults, but also trackrecords - and "trust us" is not going to cut it with my folks.

    Very excited to attend the presentation!

    Thank you!
    Johnny

      Yes, it would be great to hear of any spatial developments. Thanks.
