This is a meetup from our friends of the Graph Database - Amsterdam group. Due to the relevance, it's cross posted here. You can register here.
Graphs are getting a lot of new attention, as part of the industry’s drive for NO-SQL, big data (whatever that means) and data science. Today however, we feel that’s only the “lucky few” that have seen the light and are experimenting with Graphs and Graph databases. And we want to spread the word - make this the biggest thing since hot water, sliced bread, and tables/stools.
So here’s the idea: on 11th of June 2013, we want to get all graphistas together for a fun and exciting evening of graphs - and beer. The concept is that of a “Knowledge Cafe”, where we put a bunch of tables in a nice venue, and have lightning talks every 15 minutes to spice up the conversations. We would do it in a nice location: Brouwerij De Prael in downtown Amsterdam - just so that we can benefit of some beer tastings as well :) …
What could YOU do for this event? Well, we have a couple of ideas!
- you could come! Everyone is welcome, provided that they register beforehand.
- you could host a knowledge table, to discuss and explain to other people what you have been doing with graphs
- you could do a lightning talk - no more than 5 minutes, 5 slides!
- you could - and this is the important part - bring your friends and colleagues. If you do, we will have a nice little something for you to remember the night by - just as a token of appreciation.
Let us know if you have any other ideas - would love to have you there!
BTW: For those who'd like to travel by car, try parking at the NDSM werf (Amsterdam Noord) and take the ferry to central station. It's a nice boat ride and it's free parking. From CS it's a five minute walk to the venue. The ferry runs twice per hour and runs until after midnight.
