Neo4j in Production Tutorial - Chicago

Wednesday July 31 09:00-17:00 CDT

Before putting your Neo4j application into production on a high volume web site or deploying it as a mission critical business application, learn the best practices learned from hundreds of deployments at hot start-ups and Global 2000s.

This tutorial covers running Neo4j Enterprise Edition in production. With hands-on practice sessions, attendees will quickly learn how easy it is to deploy and maintain a Neo4j instance and cluster. You will leave with an understanding of deployment and maintenance procedures, and how to get your Neo4j project ready for the real world.

Topics covered include:

  • Hardware Sizing, Scaling and Performance Tuning
  • Clustering and Load Balancing Neo4j
  • Back-ups, Restores, and Trouble-shooting
  • Security, Upgrades
  • Opportunity to consult on current projects, possible implementations and proof of concepts

Attendees should have previous experience with Neo4j, and will need their own laptop.

The tutorial will be held at DePaul University's School of Computing & Digital Media. Breakfast, lunch and refreshments will be provided.
