PRESENTATION: Preserving and Exploring the Business Information Context with a Graph Database
ABSTRACT: NoSQL, JSON and REST architectures are transforming both the way people and systems interact. AuditBucket takes an age old system requirement and re-purposes it as an enterprise data aggregation service enabling information insight to be extracted using Neo4j and ElasticSearch.
SPEAKER BIO: Mike Holdsworth, CEO and Founder, AuditBucket
Mike has worked extensively on business process and information management challenges for more years than he cares to admit. While working as a solution architect for KiwiRail he introduced Neo4j to manage capacity problems as part of a larger RESTful architectural stack. On recognizing the power of Neo4J, AuditBucket was conceived as a data mediation service that would audit changes to JSON documents and allow rapid creation of a Neo4j graph and ElasticSearch document store. The concept has been enthusiastically embraced by business users and analysts alike.
PRESENTATION: Describing and Visualizing RESTful web services with Swagger
ABSTRACT: Swagger is a specification and complete framework implementation for describing, producing, consuming, and visualizing RESTful web services. The overarching goal of Swagger is to enable client and documentation systems to update at the same pace as the server. The documentation of methods, parameters and models are tightly integrated into the server code, allowing APIs to always stay in sync.
SPEAKER BIO: Tony Tam, Scala hacker, Swagger committer and CEO at Reverb Technologies Inc
PRESENTATION: Turning the tables on recipe discovery and other food related puns.
ABSTRACT: In an effort to make meal planning cheaper, more effective, and more interesting, Saucesomeapp.com uses Neo4j and some real-time number crunching to suggest ingredients that commonly occur together with the user's existing ingredient list. The results in some surprising suggestions and a fun user experience.
