Come play with the data behind GitHub! All skill levels are welcome.
The NY Graph Meetup is joining forces with GitHub, Heroku, and Neo4j for a bicoastal workshop and mini-hackathon, using GitHub's real-world data.
GitHub, a giant playground for collaborative coding, maintains many fascinating data sets: a social graph of people and their skills, a project graph of branches and forks, and a dependency graph of projects.
In the workshop, we'll explore this data using different technologies, approaches, and front ends. Then, experienced developers from Neo Technology will be on hand to help teams import, structure, query, visualize, and use GitHub's data to create applications.
Oh, and did we mention that there's a simultaneous event in San Francisco? This promises to be a good old-fashioned East Coast / West Coast hacker throw down. And as an awesome perk, ten random attendees will each get a year of GitHub's Micro plan, courtesy of GitHub!
6:00 Refreshments and chit-chat; a brief intro to Neo4j, graph databases, and GitHub's dataset.
