Max will introduce us to Neo4j, an open source graph database that you can embed, deploy as a server, or use in the cloud. Starting with graph databases 101, you'll leave with an understanding of graph-like thinking, when to use a graph, and what great new magic you'll be able to add to your toolbox.
If you are dealing with highly connected data, writing crazy stored procedures, battling monster join tables or just want a new perspective on databases, you'll want to attend. Learn the secret sauce behind Neo4j, and see some example Neo4j projects to help you get started.
