Hands On Intro to Cypher - Neo4j's Query Language

Want to improve your Cypher skills? This is just the session for you!  You don't need any experience of coding/programming. We will be writing queries using Neo4j's query language but we'll start from scratch and work from there through the session.

This 3 hour session will be a mixture of theory and hands-on practice sessions, and you will quickly learn how easy it is to work with a powerful graph database using Cypher as the query language.

You will need to bring your laptop and preferably have Neo4j installed. If you need help getting it up and running we'll do that before the session starts. 

Pre Requisites

You'll get the most from the session if you've previously attended an intro to graphs session OR have an understanding of graphs and how they can be used.

Rough Schedule

6.00 - 6.30pm - Food/Drinks/Networking and getting Neo4j installed.
6.30pm - Session starts

    This was the first meetup I attended and I have to say it set the bar quite high - very interesting and well-organised tutorial, friendly people, great location and lovely food. Thank you all for your effort!

    Thank you so much neo4j team! Loved the workshop/talk and was very useful seeing how the tools can actually be used, with real data!

    How advanced in coding do you need to be to attend this meetup?

    • Mark N.

      Hi Ewa,

      You don't need to be advanced in coding to attend this meetup. We assume noone has used Neo4j before this session.

      Cheers

    Enjoy this session everyone. Graph databases have so much potential. I recommend taking a look at graph gists to get some ideas for what can be done and to see some cypher in action :)
