Neo4j Tutorial - Washington, D.C.

Thursday May 16 09:00-17:00 EDT

This tutorial covers the core functionality of the Neo4j graph database. With a mixture of theory and hands-on practice sessions, attendees will quickly learn how easy it is to develop a Neo4j-backed application.

Topics covered include:

  • Introduction to Neo4j
  • Overview of Cypher query language
  • Social use cases including recommendations
  • Permissions modeling
  • Other case studies in real world domains
  • Opportunity to consult on current projects, possible implementations and proof of concepts 

Attendees won't need any previous experience with Neo4j, NOSQL databases or specific development languages, but will need their own laptop with Neo4j installed.

The tutorial will be held at ÜberOffices in Rosslyn, VA. Breakfast, lunch and refreshments will be provided.

Wes Freeman is an experienced software engineer, excited about graph databases – especially the Cypher query language, to which he is a community contributor. He created the AnormCypher Neo4j "driver" for Scala. He is the top answerer on StackOverflow for Cypher-tagged questions, and runs a Cypher-oriented blog with tutorials and examples, as well as the twitter bot @neoquestions. Wes is also the DC/Baltimore Graph Database meetup group organizer.

Wes works at Information Analysis Inc. (a recently added Neo Technology partner). He's so enthusiastic about Neo4j that his wife even made him a birthday cake with the Neo4j logo and some Cypher syntax on it.
