Session 1 – Brendon Page (Chillisoft)

Topic: Graph Databases in the World of NoSql

Description:
The word NoSql is all the rage these days but why would we use a NoSql database? And which one do we use when? Understanding this is critical to deciding when to use a graph database.

Format: Talk\Discussion

Session 2 – Brendon Page (Chillisoft)

Topic: SQL 2 Cypher

Description:
Here we take a look at how some common SQL queries  look like in Cypher, the query language used by Neo4j. We start with the basics and quickly ramp up to some nightmarish SQL that is surprisingly elegant in Cypher. In addition to getting a feel for Cypher, these examples will give more concrete examples to when to use a graph database.

Format: Talk\Discussion
