Intro to Neo4j / Powering Job Applications with Neo4J

  • April 10, 2014 · 6:00 PM

This Thursday, we'll be joined by Amanda Laucher of Neo4j and Tero Paananen of for an entry-level overview of Neo4j and a deep dive into its use at to power their enterprise-scale job applications solution.

Amanda (@pandamonial), a Field Engineer at Neo4j, will be giving a brief introduction to graph databases and touch on some recent non-Java, non-social networking and non-big data client use cases for Neo4j. You'll learn how and why you want to start looking at graphs as a data storage abstraction for everyday applications.

In a revised and expanded version of the lightning talk he gave at GraphConnect NYC, Tero Paananen (@teropaananen), Software Engineer and Director of Solution-Based Solutions at JIBE, will be discussing how came to use Neo4j and why it was chosen, as well as the challenges encountered in designing a graph-backed application and what he and his fellow engineers at Jibe learned in the course of building their white-labeled mobile job application tracker. (You can view his earlier lightning talk below.)
