Realistic Neo4j Part 1: Neo4j + Ruby

  • January 29, 2014 · 6:00 PM
  • This location is shown only to members

For this month's meetup, our focus will be writing a realistic application that is backed by Neo4j.  To make learning as easy as possible, we will choose the Ruby programming language as an example in how to programmatically interface with Neo4j.  (no prior Ruby experience needed)

To make our example as simple as possible, we will write some web services using the Neography Ruby API.

We will cover:

1.  Some Ruby basics and how Ruby "talks" to Neo4j

2.  How Cypher queries translate can easily translate to Ruby code

3.  Pitfalls, tips and best practices

4.  How to create a webpage which presents data from Neo4j 

Some basic programming experience is recommended but not required.  Please bring a laptop with Ruby and Neo4j install ahead of time if you'd like to participate.

Hope to see you there.  

Note, due to previous incidences of "no-shows", a small fee will be charged for this meetup.
