Details

We are pleased to inform you that we can now include up to 4 participants on Adobe connect for our upcoming lab. This is first time we would be trying such a thing in this meetup group but we are hoping for great results. Please join the meetup group and let us know that you are interested. Adobe connect seats are open for any one outside of Stockholm. For people in the area we will meet in person :)

With Neo4j 1.8M1 (http://blog.neo4j.org/2012/05/neo4j-18m01-release-vindeln-vy.html) release we now have CREATE, SET, DELETE, FOREACH in the query language. Coupled with lots of other goodies (since the last time we saw Cypher) a new lab is warranted. And it seems that other meetup groups are (http://www.meetup.com/windy-city-graphdb/events/62355142/) getting ahead (http://www.meetup.com/graphdb-berlin/events/66381472/) of us (http://www.meetup.com/Neo4j-Oresund/events/65661242/). So we need to strike back ftw.

Detailed Plan:

We assume that you already know what Neo4j is (if you don't have any idea then this video (http://video.neo4j.org/QrfG/0517-intro-to-graph-databases/) would be helpful). You are not expected to know Cypher but you are encouraged to go through Chapter 16 (http://docs.neo4j.org/chunked/milestone/cypher-query-lang.html) of current Milestone release.

For this meeting you will all be _required_ to bring your laptops. It would be best if you can pre-install the latest Mile Stone (http://neo4j.org/download/) version of Neo4j Server on your Laptop. If you drop in early we can help you with setting up Neo4j if necessary (it's very easy any way)

We will have two sessions of 45 minute each. In the first session we will go through quick examples of CRUD with Cypher. In the second half we will focus on things which go beyond CRUD (functions, aggregations etc)

Please post in Pre-Meetup conversation for questions/comments.

Lets learn together, by doing.
