- Gremlin / Tinkerpop training in SF
Register at: http://graphday.com/sf2017-workshops/tinkerpop Josh Perryman (https://www.linkedin.com/in/josh-perryman-5650208), who is more familiar with more graph databases than anyone we know, will be coming to San Francisco for the upcoming Graph Day (http://graphday.com) conference. We recently commissioned Josh to teach an introductory Gremlin / Tinkerpop course in Austin, and the response from attendees was so enthusiastic that we asked him to offer it again while he is in SF. If you want a fast-track deep dive intro to Tinkerpop and the Gremlin query language, there is no better person than Josh. In fact, this is the *only* Gremlin/Tinkerpop training course that we know of. The class will be offered next Friday afternoon, June 16, in Downtown SF. There will only be one section of this course, and there are a few seats left.

- Luca Garulli on OrientDB - MultiModal Graph Database
Without a lot of hype and fanfare, OrientDB has become one of the most widely deployed graph databases. DB-engines.com currently ranks OrientDB #2 among graph databases (http://db-engines.com/en/ranking/graph+dbms) -- and now it's multi-modal, able to store documents as well. We've been trying for a while now to bring Luca Garulli (https://www.linkedin.com/in/garulli), the author of OrientDB (http://orientdb.com/orientdb/), to San Francisco. It's finally on the calendar! For those of you not yet familiar, OrientDB is an open source NoSQL (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/NoSQL) database management system (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Database_management_system) written in Java (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Java_(programming_language)). It is a multi-model database, supporting graph (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Graph_database), document (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Document-oriented_database), key/value (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Key-value_database), and object (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Object_database) models, but the relationships are managed as in graph databases with direct connections between records. It supports schema-less, schema-full and schema-mixed modes. It has a strong security profiling system based on users and roles and supports querying with Gremlin (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gremlin_(programming_language)) along with SQL (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/SQL) extended for graph traversal. This is a rare opportunity. Come join us to welcome Luca to the Bay Area!
