This year we thought it would be fun to highlight many of the useful Neo4j integrations with other technologies in a “Buzzword BINGO” format. This means that teams will be building applications using Neo4j and other technologies listed on their BINGO cards. (see pic) . Each team must make a BINGO (four in row vertically, horizontally, or diagonally) for a valid hackathon submission.

Not currently a graph hacker, or want to learn more? Come early (9am-10am) for a hands on workshop covering an intro to Neo4j and an overview of many of our popular "buzzwords" - also known as technology integrations that make building applications with Neo4j easier :-)

You'll need to bring a laptop that can be used for development and have Neo4j installed.
