Join Us for a Full Day of Graphs at FOSDEM 2016

The FOSDEM open source conference is the largest (5000+) gathering of users and developers of open source projects in Europe. Happening annually in Brussels, Belgium it has been home of the Graph Processing devroom for the last five years.

Every year, we have had a packed room with exciting presentations on all things graph. From graph database internals, to new graph processing frameworks, graph visualization, benchmarks and applications – we cover a lot of territory.

We’re excited to announce the schedule for this year’s event on Saturday, 30 January. Make sure to be there for an impressive selection of talks and great speakers.

On this year’s docket: Petra Selmer and I will give an introduction to the openCypher project. We’ll also hear about graph processing using Apache Flink as well as large-scale, real-time graph analytics and benchmarking.

The Arabesque and GitHub analytics talks will cover graph data mining. And last but not least, we’ll hear from Paul Girard on his story of moving from MySQL to a graph database.

After the day full of great presentations, we will organize a small get together for members of the graph database community to chat and exchange ideas with a refreshing Belgian beer. Let us know if you want to join by RSVPing on
