Neo4j Basics + The Cypher query language

  • Jul 30, 2012 · 6:00 PM

We have a lot of new Graphistas, so we are going to split this meet-up into two sessions.

Session one from 6-6:45 will be an introduction to Graph Databases followed by 15 minutes of questions about graphs in general or your current graph projects, then we'll start from 7 to 7:45 with Session Two on Cypher


Beginner Track

What is a graph made of?  Different kinds of graphs. What is a property graph?  What is a graph database?  What is Neo4j?  What can you do with it?  Learn the basics.  Get a head start by visiting my blog going to the earliest post and reading your way to today.


Advanced Track

It doesn't matter if you are working on Neo4j in Ruby, Java, Python, Clojure or Javascript.  Chances are you'll want to make use of the Neo4j Query language "Cypher".

We'll go through the language, from simple queries to complex and see how crazy we can make them.

    Was blown away by presentation - awesome technology and clearly an expert presenter.

    Max did a great job... he carefully assembled the case for graph databases, covering the alternatives and use cases where a graph db would make understanding and coding simpler and easier to read.

    Yet another awesome MeetUp, this time on the basics of Neo4j. Max comes prepared and both gives an excellent overview as well as dips into live examples. Just about my favorite MeetUp in Chicago. There was lively banter between attendees afterwards, which is always the sign of a great event.
