Hands on intro to NoSQL - Neo4j

Hands on intro to NoSQL - Neo4j

Seacliff C

In this half day workshop we'll look at the use cases for graph databases, and we'll install neo4j, the most broadly adopted graph database available. We will also look at data modeling with graph databases and we'll get some hands on experience with the declarative "cypher" query language - think "SQL for graphs".


Pre-requisites The only background for this workshop is some programming experience. You will get much more out of the workshop if you bring a laptop and either a power brick or enough battery power to run your laptop for the three hours.
