• nForum Q1 -- Grafdatabaser, Infrastruktur som kod, Drunken hamster deployment

    17:00 Mingel och lättare tilltugg (tillsammans med Javaforum) 17:30 Välkommen 17:35 Grafdatabaser, många relationer på ett enklare sätt – Jakob Lithner, Squeed Grafdatabaser är en ny storagetyp inom NoSQL världen. Det är den som de senaste åren växt klart mest, men är ändå relativt okänd för de flesta. Är man van vid vanliga relationsdatabaser så kan det först kännas litet främmande. Men om man bara fattar de grundläggande koncepten så är det lättare än man kan tro! Den marknadsdominerande grafdatabasen heter Neo4j och är ursprungligen utvecklad i Sverige. En bakgrund till grafdatabaser och förklarar hur de gör stor skillnad i rätt användningsfall. Frågespråket Cypher som används i Neo4j är ganska likt SQL, så om man bara förstår grunderna så är man snart igång. Med exempel visas hur man läser in data, bygger upp noder och relationer samt ställer frågor mot grafträdet. Avslutnigsvis visas hur grafdatabaser passar in i ett tiotal vanliga use case. Demokod finns för nedladdning så att man enkelt kan testa vidare själv. 18:30 Paus 18:45 Infrastruktur som kod i Azure – Johan Kardell, Squeed Vi går igenom några vanliga sätt att hantera sin infrastruktur som kod i just Azure. Vilka sätt är vanliga, vad finns det för alternativ som är lätt att komma igång med? Johan delar med sig av lite exempel tagna från verkligheten och självklart även en silverbullet i ämnet. 19:15 Paus 19:30 Drunken hamster deployment – Karl Tillström, Collector Bank Banksystem får ju aldrig gå fel, därför har vi i Collector Checkout outsourcat våra deployments till ett gäng fulla hamstrar. En berättelse om continuous deployments. 20:00 Slut! Valfritt mingel med öl och datasnack för de som vill på The Bishop Arms, Järntorget 6 Stort tack till Gunnebo som sponsrar eventet.

  • JOINT MEETUP: Neo4j, GraphQL and Switching to React

    The Techno Creatives

    Hello everybody This meetup is really organised by the ReactJS Goteborg branch, lead by Stephen White (see over here of original page (https://www.meetup.com/ReactJS-Goteborg/events/242403249/)). However, since it involves some very cool Neo4j people (Will Lyon and Oskar Hane), I think we definitely want as many local graphistas there as possible too. Here's the invite from Stephen: ----- Heya It’s time to wipe away the summer haze and begin a new dev year with a truly legendary React meet up! What better way do this by freshening up old code and thinking in Graphs when dealing with state! We’re really excited to have Will Lyon and Oskar Hane from Neo4j who’ll give us some incite into how graph data fits perfectly with GraphQL and your React state. Mikeal Eliasson from Bokio will take us through their experience of moving from Angluar 1 to react, the pros and cons of bringing in a new tech stack. “The Technocreatives” will host the event, providing atmosphere, a creative environment, refreshments and beer. So, please be aware that we wont be at the Callista office! Look forward to seeing you all! Cheers, Stephen. Agenda : 17.30 - Arrive Mingle 18.00 - Graphs All The Way Down: Building A Full Stack Graph Application With GraphQL and Neo4j, Will Lyon, Neo4j (see below for detailed description) 19.00 - The learnings from rewriting the Neo4j Browser using modern technologies and how to manage an open source project with a distributed core team, Oskar Hane, Neo4j 20.00 - The ups and downs of switching to React. Lessons learned while migrating a large codebase from Angular 1, Mikeal Eliasson, Bokio 21.00 - Hometime Graphs all the way down Despite what the name may imply, GraphQL is not a query language for graph databases. Instead it is a new way of building APIs where application data is treated as a graph on the frontend. GraphQL has been called "REST 2.0" as it offers many advantages over REST. Although GraphQL can be used with any database or backend service, it becomes even more powerful when combined with a graph database such as Neo4j. Using graphs on the backend as well as the frontend allows for removing the mapping and translation layer, simplying development. Translating GraphQL to a single graph database query offers performance benefits. Further, we can enhance the expressivity of GraphQL by exposing Cypher, the query language for graphs, in our GraphQL schema. This talk will start with a brief overview of GraphQL and graph databases then dive into why they are awesome when used together! We will talk about how we can use GraphQL with Neo4j and walk through the code to build a full stack application. No experience with GraphQL or graph databases is necessary to benefit from this talk.

    Let us introduce our first event co-hosted with both Akamai - the world leader of CDN services, and Neo Technologies - the world leader of Graph Databases. As the first activity for our Neo4j & Akamai meetup in Gothenburg, we are going to organise TWO meetings on ONE day. This lunchtime meeting will be high-level - the evening event will be technically oriented. We also have the pleasure of having Hästens show their use case combining both Neo4j and Akamai! If you are also interested in the technical aspects of the below, you are welcome to join our evening activity as well. Neo4j & Akamai (in-depth technical) (http://www.meetup.com/Graph-Database-Goteborg/events/230484855/) AGENDA 11:00 - 11:30 - Lunch & Networking 11:30 - 11:55 - Intro to Graphs - Rik Van Bruggen (https://www.linkedin.com/in/rikvanbruggen) (Regional VP of Sales at Neo Technology) The study of Graphs (aka Graph Theory) has existed for centuries. Applying this knowledge to modern day data structures is perhaps a little bit more unintuitive, but as a matter of fact extremely useful. Storing your enterprise data as a graph/network, gives you a much easier data model, a massive boost in performance, and most likely, lots of new business insights. 11:55 - 12:20 - Intro to Akamai - Stefan Krantz (https://www.linkedin.com/in/stefan-krantz-7a14062) (Senior Solutions Engineer at Akamai Technologies) Akamai is the global leader in Content Delivery Network (CDN) services, making the Internet fast, reliable and secure for its customers. 12:20 - 12:45 - Case: Hästens Sängar Global Omnichannel Ecommerce with Neo4j & Akamai - Kent Lovestjärna (https://www.linkedin.com/in/kentlovestjarna) (Digital Media Manager at Hästens Sängar AB) / Anders Ekström (https://www.linkedin.com/in/andersekstrom1) (CEO at NetConsult Sweden AB) The story about how Hästens Sängar started the digitalization of their business. Adding leverage with the connected data between numerous silos and the continuous process of optimizing old fashioned workflows. A great example on how a 5 generation family business use Neo4j & Akamai to be able to support the customers of tomorrow in a true omnichannel environment. 12:45 - 13:00 - QA & Networking This is the same event that is listed in the group "Akamai Göteborg (http://www.meetup.com/Akamai-Goteborg/)".
