Neo4j Tutorial - Durham

Monday June 10 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. You will leave with an understanding of graph databases, when to use them, and how to get started working with Neo4j.

Topics covered include:

  • Introduction to Neo4j
  • Fundamentals of graph modeling
  • Querying, creating and updating with the Cypher query language
  • A survey of real-world use cases
  • 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.

The tutorial will be held at American Underground in Durham. Light breakfast, lunch and refreshments will be provided.
