Session: "Why 'Friends of Friends' matters: Applying graph databases to much more than social"

  • Presented by David Montag, software engineer at Neo Technology
  • Saturday, October 6th at 11:15 a.m. PT
  • Check conference agenda for room assignment

Abstract: Graph databases are the red pill. They free your mind to store and query data without borders or boundaries. Today graph databases are used by fortune 500s and sprawling startups alike. Neo4j is the leading graph database on the market, and in this session we explore Neo4j's Cypher query language and demonstrate how you in an hour can learn to apply Cypher to a broad range of use cases. With simple one-liners you'll learn to extract enormous amounts of value from your data. Come join us and see how deep the rabbit hole goes!

Session: "Everything is Social (and so can you)"

  • Presented by Andreas Kollegger, cloud wrangler at Neo Technology
  • Saturday, October 6th at 11:15 a.m. PT
  • Check conference agenda for room assignment

Abstract: Social isn't just for social apps. The common, often intuitive patterns of data and interactions within social are present in every application. We'll take a look at those patterns, then see how they're expressed in a few different practical domains, and how you can take advantage of that in your application. You'll learn how to add social to any application, and reveal the social aspects that are already there.
