There's more choice in databases than ever before, but what's the best choice for a Rubyist? With Neo4j you have a database that makes intuitive sense, provides the flexibility to easily change with requirements, and makes deep and complicated queries much easier. And now there's a Ruby gem which makes working with Neo4j as easy as using ActiveRecord or Mongoid! Join Brian Underwood for an introduction to the Neo4j database and how you can use it in Ruby.
Brian Underwood is a developer evangelist for Neo Technology (the makers of the Neo4j graph database) and has worked as an engineer for Couchsurfing and Good Eggs. He would describe himself as a software craftsman with an obsession for data. Originally from Ohio, he is currently on a two-year trip around the world with his wife and son.
Neo Technology is also organizing the GraphConnect graph database conference (http://graphconnect.com (http://graphconnect.com/)) on Thursday May 7th. Attendees of this meetup are welcome to a 20% discount to the conference. Brian also has a few free tickets - speak to him at the meetup or contact through http://www.meetup.com/members/49232192/
