YOW! Depthfirst Workshop – Jim Webber, Practical Introduction to Neo4j – Sydney Dec 5
Practical Introduction to Neo4j with Jim Webber
This workshop is aimed at the people new to Neo4j but curious about what graphs can do for them and their business. In this highly practical session we’ll explore what a graph database is and how data modelling works for graphs. We will also touch on a little graph theory and DBMS architecture for depth.
The workshop is split into multiple sessions, each with substantial practical elements – so bring your laptop!
