• What we'll do
We are very excited to announce our next DataStax Professional Community Meetup event on February 21st !
For this Meetup we’ll explore in-depth Apache TinkerPop’s Gremlin, the query language used by multiple graph dbs, including, of course, DataStax Enterprise Graph. You’ll meet other users of DataStax Cassandra and DSE Graph users and enjoy food and drinks... See you there!!
6:45pm - 7:15pm: Food, drinks and networking
7:15pm - 7:30pm: Welcome and Introduction
7:30pm - 8:15pm: Gremlin’s Anatomy: Stephen Mallette
8:15pm - 8:45pm: Q+A and others.
Stephen Mallette
Stephen Mallette has been developing graph technology and graph applications for about ten years. He is a core developer of the graph framework, Apache TinkerPop, and the chair of its Project Management Committee. He is currently employed by DataStax and is one of the engineers working on DSE Graph.
Gremlin is the graph traversal language of Apache TinkerPop, an open source graph computing framework, that is implemented by a great many graph databases, including DSE Graph. Even the most novice Gremlin user will recognize the Gremlin statement of "g.V()", but in this presentation we will stop to take a moment to understand the elements of that ubiquitous statement and the elements of the steps that append to it. With the foundational knowledge of "Gremlin's Anatomy" firmly held, we will perform an autopsy on an advanced Gremlin traversal and thus expose techniques for examining and taming the most complex and confusing Gremlin one might come across.
In addition to the talks there will be, as usual, plenty of opportunity to meet other DataStax users and enjoy robust discussions around NoSQL.
