We have a lot of new Graphistas, so we are going to split this meet-up into two sessions.

Session one from 6-6:45 will be an introduction to Graph Databases followed by 15 minutes of questions about graphs in general or your current graph projects, then we'll start from 7 to 7:45 with Session Two on Gremlin the graph traversal language.

Beginner Track

What is a graph made of? Different kinds of graphs. What is a property graph? What is a graph database? What is Neo4j? What can you do with it? Learn the basics. Get a head start by visiting my blog going to the earliest post and reading your way to today.

Advanced Track

When it comes to traversing graphs, Gremlin is the greatest thing since sliced-bread, but it takes a little getting used to. We'll start with the basics, throw in some indexes, recommendation systems, transactions, subgraphs, and interfaces to JUNG.

Once you get Gremlin, you'll get graphs.
